F1 Monza race preview
The question before the Italian Grand Prix is once again can anyone stop Red Bull and Max Verstappen?
It's becoming a bit of a broken record, but it's a sign of his dominance this season.
At Monza he's in line to break the record for the most consecutive F1 race wins.
Considering not just his form this year but also that he won last year's Italian Grand Prix, you'd think he's likely to do it again.
Verstappen sits on 11 wins overall for the season and bearing in mind there's 9 races to go, you'd also put good money on him beating the record of 15 wins in a year too.
But other drivers are showing signs of life.
Fernando Alonso made a return to the podium at the Dutch Grand Prix after a little dip in form.
Meanwhile Pierre Gasly had his first podium finish last week, and coupled with the fact he won the Italian Grand Prix in 2020, that will boost his confidence going into this race.
But really we think the other drivers will just be battling to take out the minor placings behind Verstappen as his commanding year continues.
