Info and awards

The first Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix took place in 1950 and, in 72 editions, the event only failed once at Monza to go to Imola in 1980. In seven decades of the World Championship, the base of the Monza circuit has not evolved enormously, except of course with the addition and modification of the chicanes, mainly for safety reasons. The layout of the circuit with oval, a certain idea of ​​madness, was used in the mid-1950s and early 1960s.

5.793 km long and made up of 11 bends, the Monza track has offered its current configuration since 2000, when the first chicane was redone. It is a speed circuit par excellence, with four long full loads, two slow chicanes which encourage overtaking and more technical sectors (Lesmo, Ascari and the Parabolic, now called Curva Alboreto). In the race, you have to complete 53 laps, for a total distance of 306.720 km.
