Following the tragic events of last weekend, the circus is back on the road again.
This weekend, we are back at Monza, spiritual home of Ferrari.
The big question is again, 'Will Ferrari again dominate?'
This is another track that should suit the Red Rockets.
Even so, the Mercedes were still not too far behind the winning Ferrari at race end.
Even Max Verstappen seems to have conceded that his Red Bull will have no chance and has installed the Spec 4 Honda power unit and will start from the rear of the grid. It will be interesting to see just how far through the field he can get.
The best of the rest will again will be worth watching. The Renault power units do not seem to have the pace so it will be up to Haas, Racing Points, Toro Rossos and Alfa Romeos to fight out the last of the points paying positions.
A McLaren or Renault may grab a 9th or 10th but that will be as good as it gets.
