    OFFICIAL #F1 Report: Alpine F1 - Italy GP Preview

    2021 FORMULA 1 ITALIAN GRAND PRIX PREVIEW.

    Alpine F1 Team previews the fourteenth race weekend of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Italian Grand Prix.

    Drivers Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso and Executive Director Marcin Budkowski share their thoughts on Monza.

    Esteban Ocon: "I always enjoy going to Italy. I've spent a lot of time there in my life since I lived in the country during my Formula 3 career with PREMA Racing and a lot of my karting was there as a kid. I speak Italian, I love Italian food, so I'm probably almost half Italian! Monza is a great circuit. As a team, we go there feeling quite confident and aiming to be competitive. Our low downforce package has shown to be quite strong so hopefully we can start quickly on Friday and have a solid baseline for us to refine."

    Fernando Alonso: "Racing in places like Spa, Zandvoort and Monza is good for Formula 1 as these are places with lots of history and passion for the sport. Monza in particular is a place where you can really feel the history, it's almost alive in a way. It's a very fast and flowing circuit and when you find the right set-up and rhythm it can be a very enjoyable lap. To win there requires a car that has good straight-line speed due to the high-speed nature of the circuit."

    Marcin Budkowski: "Any triple header is challenging, preparing for three different circuits and racing every weekend, but our good result in Zandvoort and the euphoric Dutch atmosphere made last weekend very enjoyable. Monza brings a different challenge as it's very high-speed, low downforce and with heavy braking zones after the long straights. We're also looking forward to the second Sprint Qualifying event of the year after the first trial of the format in Silverstone. We played a huge part in the success of the Sprint in Silverstone with both drivers making moves throughout that race."
