Key sections of the circuit
It becomes evident at a glance that on this track result depends pretty much on the power of the engine and the top speed on the straights. Downforce settings are pretty much the same among all the teams: angle of attack on the wings is set to minimal.
Stability under braking and confidence on the exits from the corners are also essential here. Good traction of the rear wheels is crucial in Monza, especially on the exits from the 1st and 2nd chicanes.
You'll need some good grip on the long sweeping exit from the high-speed Ascari (8,9,10) corner as well. A driver needs to be confident in the rear end of the car here.
The last corner, Parabolica (11), is probably the most well-known on Monza. But now, with the gravel trap replaced by the asphalt safety zone, it's not as challenging as it used to be and that's something I don't particularly like. In the past years, any mistake here could cost you dearly, but now you can just go wider without losing much time.
