Warm & sunny weekend forecast for Italian GP

A warm and sunny weekend is forecast for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

A report at F1’s official website said that, unlike at Spa-Francorchamps two weeks ago, the weather in Italy should mean teams and drivers have better conditions to avoid a repeat of the blistering seen on Pirelli’s tyres.

“The teams should have plenty of time to adjust their cars to the new (camber) restrictions,” the report added.

Irish former F1 driver and commentator Derek Daly has been appointed the third steward at Monza.

“This (Monza) is one of those races everyone loves going to, because it’s so traditional,” said the FIA’s Charlie Whiting. “Monaco and Monza are really the two big ones in this respect”.
