Formuła 1 swaggered through Zandvoort in one of the best events on the calendar, but now the F1 circus moves onto the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, so make sure you know where to watch all the action. 

Max Verstappen took victory at the Dutch GP and leads the F1 Drivers’ Championship heading into the Italian GP, with Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton aiming to claw back his advantage at Monza with the Sprint Race making a return to proceedings. 

In 2020, Pierre Gasly took a magnificent win at the Italian GP in Monza. Could we see a similar ending on Sunday? 

When does the Italian GP take place? 

The Formula 1 race weekend will be a little bit different, but similar to what we saw at the British Grand Prix. Friday hosts a one-hour practice session before qualifying later in the afternoon. Saturday will also see another 60 minute practice session, before the sprint qualifying race which will determine the starting grid. Sunday is then designated for the race as is standard.

The full detailed schedule is as follows
