The Italian Grand Prix 2019 marks the second race of the post-summer break double header. As always, the race will be held at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, fondly known as the Temple of Speed.
Monza is practically a haven for Ferrari fans and the support they get there is tremendous. It also helps that a Ferrari has crossed the finish line first on 19 occasions, egged on by the Tifosi. Coming back to the Italian Grand Prix 2019, Scuderia Ferrari come into the race on the back of a win in Spa last weekend. So, they will be hoping to keep the momentum going on their own stomping ground.
This year, the Italian Grand Prix weekend begins on 6th September with Friday’s two practice sessions. That will be followed by the third practice session and qualifying. Finally, on Sunday, 8th September, will be race day.
With regard to the weather conditions, cloudy weather is expected on Friday, with a small chance of rain. The same could be said for Saturday and Sunday, though on Sunday, the chances will be lesser.
FP1 commences at 14:30 PM IST until 16.00PM, meanwhile FP2 will begin at 18:30PM IST and end at 20:00PM. The third practice session will be at 15:30PM IST and end at 16:30PM. That will be followed by Qualifying at 18:30PM IST until 19:30, and the race will begin at 18:40PM.
