With the Drivers’ Championship virtually in the hands of Max Verstappenthe Formula One It should start to turn to the other side. But the eyes should not be concentrated too far. A step down from number 1, in the fight for second place, most of the excitement will be in the closing.

Charles Leclerc, Czech PerezGeorge Russell and Carlos Sainz (with Lewis Hamilton on the prowl) raise their hands to steal the spotlight these last seven dates.

At the moment, the Monegasque and the Mexican are equal with 201 points, although the pilot of ferrari is up for having more victories (three against one) in the current season.

And for the race in Monza, Leclerc could take off, since he will not only be at the Scuderia house, as a punishment surrounds the Red Bull Guadalajara.

The Austrian team could change Sergio’s power unit to be in the same condition as Mad Max, but this will send him to the back of the starting grid on Sunday. However, Pérez Mendoza has a good record starting from behind in Italy, because 10 years ago he started as twelfth and climbed to the
podium in second place.

Now you will have the pressure of the two ferrari and Mercedes, which have evolved and become a serious threat.

Russell celebrates a podium

“I hope we have a similar pace to what we showed in Spa. That would be good, but I certainly think this track is a bit different to Belgium and also the weather,” said the number 11.

“Mercedes, which was strong last weekend, especially with the tire degradation,” he pointed out about the rival that could complicate the start at Monza.
