31 August - 2 September - How will the weather affect this year's Italian Grand Prix?

The F1 Italian Grand Prix has always been considered as the home turf of Ferrari. However, the Italian giant has not had much to write about of late. Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, and Daniel Ricciardo are seen as having a greater chance of success at Formula 1 Italy 2018 than the Ferrari duo of Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel. 

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
