Will Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) resist under pressure?

This is the question! He already has to race in front of his audience, as well as the obligation to take points from Max Verstappen (Red Bull) to postpone the title expiration after Singapore, the next Grand Prix.

The worrying thing is above all that this year he turned only two of his pole positions into victory and that at Le Castellet he cracked the lead. The first test will be the start, with a race of 458 meters up to the first corner.

Another surprise winner?

Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri) and Daniel Ricciardo (McLaren) are the last two winners to date in Monza. We didn’t see them coming, to say the least. So who will succeed him this Sunday? George Russell (Mercedes) and Lando Norris (McLaren), second and third at the start, are the perfect candidates.

Which series can Alpine pursue?

How likely is Max Verstappen (Red Bull) to win?

And before qualifying, he made the important decision to add downforce to his car, which carries the largest fin in the group without suffering too much. In the story, he simply sacrificed top speed.

“I just need to get rid of the machines between us. Then I’ll have a good chance.”, he threw. A real warning for Charles Leclerc and Ferrari …

What result does Max Verstappen (Red Bull) aim for in Singapore?

He is 109 points clear of Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) and his teammate, “Checo” Pérez, and will need 138 on the night of the Singapore Grand Prix to pocket his second title. He must therefore take three points from them on Sunday to fold the case in the city-state.

What is special about Monza?

Cars carry smaller fins to increase Vmax and limit drag. Consequently, the reduction in resistance is less than the opening of the DRS. Which then increases the speed by about 15 km / h. Twice less than usual, and not enough to guarantee overtaking.

The 2021 race offered 16 overtaking without DRS and 6 with.

What strategy for the race?

It is the most peaceful of the year: a stop for everyone, except the safety car. PIrelli proposes a slight deterioration to explain this, as well as a long pit lane (417 meters). We should see competitors starting on “soft” and ending on “hard”.
