The 2022 Italian Grand Prix

At just under six kilometers long, Monza's track is quite long: just one kilometer shorter than Spa-Francorchamps, but even faster if possible. The 5.8 kilometers are swallowed up in just over a minute (1:18.887) was Lewis Hamilton's pole time in 2020), making the circuit live up to its nickname.

A series of straights and a few tight corners ensure that high speeds are reached here every year and make the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza the fastest circuit on the current Formula 1 calendar. Because where else do you drive more than two-thirds of the race with the accelerator fully pressed?
