Where is the 2021 Italian Grand Prix held?

The Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, located in northern Italy, is one of the most famous Formula 1 circuits.
He is a true fan of the F1 calendar, hosting the Italian Grand Prix in all but one season, 1980, since the sport began in 1950.
With long straights and sweeping corners, there are few circuits that can be reached at higher speeds, with cars averaging around 160 mph and reaching over 200 mph.
However, there are plenty of overtaking opportunities on the lap, with the main opportunities coming in Turn 1, turn 4 and turn 8. Unlike a lot of tracks these days, if you’re faster than the car in front of you and in it. DRS domain, it’s a great opportunity to move forward.
In total, the circle is 3.6 miles long and consists of 11 corners. For many of them, drivers are not really going to hit the gas pedal. When they do, they will have to apply the brakes hard.
Of course, the high-speed nature of the track makes it extremely dangerous, as 52 riders have died there over the years, but changes have been made recently to make it safer.

Italian Grand Prix indicators
Monza is a city located in northern Italy, about 15 km from Milan.
If you are traveling into the countryside, the best airport to go to is Milan Linate, which is only 8 kilometers from the city centre.
The easiest way for travelers from Milan to get to the circuit is by train, as service departs from Milano Centrale and Milano Porto Garibaldi to Monza station every 15 minutes on race weekends.
From Monza station it is then possible to take a shuttle bus to the track. They operate regularly every day and a daily return ticket costs €5. Be prepared to walk a bit when you get off, as it takes up to 30 minutes to get to your seats from the drop-off point.
Driving straight to the track is a bit simple due to its close proximity to the highway.
Address: Monza National Circuit, Viale di Vedano, 5, 20900 Monza MB, Italy
Who are the drivers who won the Italian Grand Prix?
One year after the day Pierre Gasly won the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

The two most dominant drivers ever at Monza are the two most dominant drivers in the sport’s history, Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton.
Driving a Ferrari, the German won his team’s home race on five occasions between 1996 and 2006, sending wild typhus each time.
Hamilton’s five wins – one for McLaren in 2012 and four for Mercedes between 2014 and 2018 – were less popular with the public as he often battled a Ferrari or two to win.
He’s not the only man in the current grid to have won there multiple times, with Sebastian Vettel doing so on three occasions, most famously in 2008 when he claimed his first Formula 1 victory for Toro Rosso, and Fernando Alonso’s victories in 2007 and 2010.
Last year’s race produced just as much shock as Vettel’s win in 2007 with AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly winning a Formula One race for the first time.
The last 10 winners of the Italian Grand Prix are:
2020: Pierre Gasly (France, AlphaTauri).
2019: Charles Leclerc (Monaco, Ferrari).
2018: Lewis Hamilton (Great Britain, Mercedes).
2017: Lewis Hamilton (Great Britain, Mercedes).
2016: Nico Rosberg (Germany, Mercedes)
2015: Lewis Hamilton (Great Britain and Mercedes).
2014: Lewis Hamilton (Great Britain, Mercedes)
2013: Sebastian Vettel (Germany and Red Bull)
2012: Lewis Hamilton (Great Britain and McLaren).
2011: Sebastian Vettel (Germany and Red Bull)
