2015 Italian GP Pre-Race Stats

Glorious Monza, home of the Italian GP and the most used track in F1 history.

This weekend will mark the 66th Italian GP and the 65th race at Monza, 1980 is the only year where an F1 race has not been held at the track, instead it was held at Imola due to renovations at Monza. The track is 5.793km long, making it the fifth longest in 2015, with 53 race laps, giving a total race distance of 307.029km. Monza has a reasonably low win from pole percentage, 37.5% or 24 races have been won from pole position and 54.7% or 35 from the front row of the grid.

As well as having the most races of any track in F1, Monza also has the most different winners, 35 in total from Giuseppe Farina in 1950 to Lewis Hamilton in 2014. As expected Ferrari are the most successful team at the track with 18 wins and Michael Schumacher the most successful driver with five wins.

Valtteri Bottas will be making his 50th F1 race this weekend and Lewis Hamilton will be making his 50th race for Mercedes and may win his 40th F1 race and third in Italy.

The Prediction

Pole – Hamilton

1st – Hamilton

2nd – Rosberg

3rd – Bottas

10th – Nasr

The Silly Stats

You would need 22,280 individual strands of spaghetti to lap once around the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. To completely cover the track you would need 534,738,461 strands, which would weigh around 565,860kg, the same weight as over 800 F1 cars.

If you ordered 685,909 12 inch mozzarella pizzas from an Italian takeaway they could cover the entire Monza track surface and feed the crowd at the same time.
