“For those who love Formula One, going to Monza is a special occasion,” Honda’s sporting director Gil de Ferran said. “The history of the place is evident and the atmosphere is fantastic. The circuit itself is unique with very long straights and the highest top speeds that we will see all year, placing a premium on the aerodynamic efficiency and top-end horsepower. This year, most of the track has been resurfaced, which has slightly changed the requirements on the tyres”.
“Together with the other teams, we spent three days in Monza this week optimising our tyre choice and set-up for the track, including a unique aerodynamic configuration. Both Jenson and Rubens have had good races there in the past, particularly Rubens who has won twice, and our car performed well at the test, all of which bodes well for the weekend.”
