Weather forecasters are predicting a completely dry Italian Grand Prix at Monza this weekend.
Conditions on Friday and Saturday will be near-identical, with bright conditions set to bring ambient temperatures to a high of 28ºC.
Sunday will be slightly cloudier – albeit with no threat of rain – and hit a top of 27ºC.
The opportunity for dry-weather running should allow teams plenty of opportunity to set up their cars, potentially avoid any chance of repeating the same camber issues that befell several teams at the last round, the rain-hit Belgian Grand Prix.
Reports onsite are that the paddock figures are steadily streaming in to the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, with drivers and teams taking the opportunity to familiarise themselves with their surrounds, courtesy of the obligatory track walk around the 5-kilometre lap.
A visit to the historic circuit would not be complete without taking a look at the track’s now-disused banked section (pictured top).
