“So we head to the last European race of the season. Monza is a sensational venue with lots of history – it’s a beautiful amphitheatre. There’s a massive influence from the Tifosi there – especially with the attending Ferrari fans, which really adds atmosphere to the weekend. The track is incredibly unique with massive top speeds, so there’s a lot of heavy braking. It wasn’t the best venue for me last year, so I’m going there looking for a strong result.”
“Monza is the home of motorsport and being there gives me goose bumps. It has the best podium in the world and a win there is an unforgettable experience. If you stand up there like I did for the first time in 2008, and again last year, you are overwhelmed by the fans, the thousands of Tifosi that flood the track with their flags waving. It’s just amazing. In Monza it’s extremely difficult to produce a perfect lap because it’s almost impossible to make every corner and every chicane exactly right.”
