1-3 September - How will the weather affect this year's Italian Grand Prix?

The Monza circuit is the quickest circuit on the Grand Prix calendar, and has been a permanent fixture on the calendar since the inaugural season in 1950. A firm favourite with drivers and fans alike, the Italian Grand Prix is always an action packed and high-speed race.

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.
