In the wake of an intense race at Zandvoort, the racing teams and drivers of Formula 1 will scarcely have any time for recuperation, swiftly transitioning to the Italian Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen takes center stage at the Italian Grand Prix, riding a remarkable wave of nine consecutive race victories, and he is poised to shatter Sebastian Vettel‘s existing record.
The Dutchman arrives at Monza, a circuit where he won last season, with the intention of continuing his dominance, however there is a kind of curse with the Italian GP since 2019.
Since then, drivers who have won at what is the temple of speed have failed to finish the race the following year, and it has to be noted that Verstappen was the driver to win last year’s edition.
