Sebastian Vettel aiming to win at the F1 2019 Italian Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel is hoping for success at Ferrari's home Grand Prix but has highlighted the difficulty of getting the right set up at the high-speed, low downforce circuit. The F1 2019 Italian Grand Prix could provide Vettel the opportunity for him to win his first race of the season. 

“Racing in the home of the Tifosi in Italy, around Monza, certainly means a lot to me," Vettel said. "My first Formula 1 win came at this track in a Ferrari-powered car in 2008.

"This weekend, we are aiming to win again. I think we have got closer and closer in the past years, but we never quite made it. Looking at the track, it is very unique. You are racing with low downforce, you have got a lot of long straights and therefore it is difficult.

"The car is quite light and moves around a lot as we run with very small wings and that can make it difficult to find your braking points. Then there are the tight and narrow chicanes, where you have to know just how much kerb to use.

"It is not an easy one to set the car up for but if you manage it and you get the car in the right place, it’s a really good feeling when you find the rhythm.”

Vettel will hope to get the set up right and outperform his teammate and the Mercedes to fight for his first win of the season.
