Built in 1922, the Italian Grand Prix of Monza is one of the longest running events on the Formula 1 racing calendar and has been the location for most of the Italian races over the years. The traditional circuit consists of very long straights and only 3 real corners – the two Lesmos and the Parabolica.
The circuit is the only one in the racing calendar that pushes the Formula 1 cars to their maximum performance of 340 kmh (210 mph) and makes sure that their engines are at full throttle for nearly 80% of the lap.
