F1: Italian GP – Monza Weather Forecast – This Will Affect The Race

by on September 5, 2012

In northern Italy at this time of year, the weather can be unpredictable.  It can be hot and sunny with high humidity, damp and grey or wet and wild.

Monza lays in the rich Lombardia rich, a mere stone’s throw away from one of the World’s fashion capital, Milano.  Culture is rich and motorsports is history is as steep as the people’s passion for it.  Even Church bells ring for a Grand Prix signaling the start.

The effect on the race is purely down to tyre management and engine cooling.  The air temperature will be hot, wind will be minimal and track temperatures will be hotter still around race start time.  Free Practice One should be cooler with steadily increasing temperatures as the day wears on.  Pirelli are bringing the hard and medium compounds and many are banking on a one stopper.  Running too close to a rival’s tail end could cause an instability in downforce which might cause tyre scrubbing.  It may also cause engines temperatures to rise if choked from fresh air.
As for the weather this weekend, it seems that the beloved Tifosi will be enjoying a hot and sunny race weekend.

Here is your forecast for the Italian GP:
