Fans will be delighted to have enjoyed so much racing in a year that promised so little, with seven Grands Prix in the books and another 10 left to go.

Monza is the renowned Temple of Speed, but ‘home team’ Ferrari will want to be anywhere else this weekend as they prepare for another tough showing.

Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc both exchanged heated words with the pit wall during last weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix as their cars slumped to 13th and 14th place respectively.

Ferrari have denied they’re in a crisis, but it’s hard to picture how much worse the situation could become at the big-budget team who were expected to finish second in the constructor standings this year.

Lewis Hamilton continues to streak ahead in the driver standings with Mercedes looking untouchable at the top.

Teammate Valtteri Bottas will hope to claw back some of the gap that has emerged between himself and Hamilton, though Red Bull superstar Max Verstappen is doing everything he can to keep the heat on at the top.

Renault head into this weekend hot on the heels of a terrific Belgian Grand Prix.

Daniel Ricciardo narrowly missed out on a podium, but recorded a solid fourth spot with Esteban Ocon just behind in fifth place.
