MILESTONE
The fastest track in Formula One: It's known colloquially as 'La Pista Magica', and with good reason: the atmosphere is second to none. The old banking, lying adjacent to the modern racetrack, gives the circuit a sense of history that can't be found anywhere else in the world and the Italian fans are passionate at F1 and Ferrari in particular.

Monza marks a real return to power track territory and one of the few remaining high speed tracks on the calendar. It requires the lowest downforce arrangement seen all year. Monza's chicanes and four key corners, however, also demand a balancing aerodynamic efficiency to ensure a smooth transition over the harsh kerbs. The combination of straight-line speed and braking stability is the Holy Grail for race engineers and drivers.

A traditional power track, engines are put through their paces over the weekend, enduring a full throttle ratio of nearly three-quarters per lap. With such high top speeds, and an average lap speed of 250kph, extensive loads are exerted on the brakes during each braking event. Turn 1, for example, sees drivers brake so hard into the corner, they experience 5G. Accordingly, brake durability is crucial while a car's stability under braking is also important at Monza where the track surface is notoriously bumpy.

QUOTES ON MONZA

Monza is a very historic circuit, so it is quite special when you go there. It is a great track, you have the long, long straights and some great high speed corners. It is not an easy track to get a good set-up at. It is really tough on the cars, and you have to use the kerbs a lot to get quick lap times. Slowing the cars down with the incredibly low downforce is not easy, and the balance under braking is key.
