2020 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix session timings and preview
By:

Monza will host the eight round of the coronavirus-disrupted 2020 Formula 1 season on September 4-6. Here's all you need to know about the Italian Grand Prix.

Following last weekend's Belgian Grand Prix at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, Formula 1 heads straight to Italy for the second leg of the triple header.

Monza is the spiritual home of Ferrari, but the Maranello-based outfit could be in for another non-points finish based on its showing at Spa.

Monza is known for its long straight and big braking zones, putting the stress on engine power over downforce. This could expose the weaknesses of Ferrari's power unit, which hasn't been a match to those of its rivals since Ferrari agreed to a controversial 'settlement' with the FIA regarding the legality of its 2019 unit.

While Ferrari is expected to struggle in Italy, expect Mercedes to be out in front again, with Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas likely to battle it out for victory. Red Bull's Max Verstappen should be closed behind, while Daniel Ricciardo could also shine with the low-downforce Renault package.
