The Italian Grand Prix at Monza has a long and illustrious history, fifteen miles north-east of Milan, Monza was built in 1922. The Italian Grand Prix has been staged here for all but one year since the World Championship was introduced in 1950. The circuit is the second fastest on the calendar, and requires minimal downforce and high power.This circuit has a 5.8 km long circuit and a total of 53 laps has to be completed to declare a winner. Most teams are on the hard tyres and a one-stop strategy, Several drivers go off under braking at the first and second chicane and a
       couple also go wide on the exit of the Lesmo corners.1998 saw the ultimate result for Ferrari, with Michael and Schumacher finishing one-two. The modern day autodromo combines fast, sweeping corners and long straights, with Parabolica and Lesmo two of the more famous.  Downforce requirements are normally low with stiff settings on the car to help ride some of the big bumps that the circuit is notorious for. The low wing levels make grip poor in the low-speed turns, which can create problems for drivers who brake too late into them.
