At least the Sprint race weekend comes at a weekend where we will have back-to-back races as well as F2. So the weekend isn't a complete waste.

Although slightly joking, I don't really care for the Sprint format. Just makes it like a watered down version of the original race weekend.

I think the sprint quali here could actually make things interesting for the race. Especially with T1 incidents being what they are.

Did they change so that the fastest guy in Friday quali gets pole in the books now?

The Merc tends to like lower-downforce configurations, and they always have a great Monza spec.

They need a 1-2 to stay in the WDC fight.

Spoke a few Ferrari F1 team members today as i ran into them @ the airport ( Schiphol ).
Apparently, they are not at all fond of the coming sprint race and have a very hard head in their home GP, and even should have had better results @ Zandvoort. It wasn't just one of them, almost all of them had a very 'pessimistic' attitude.

A total contrast to the Alpine guys, whom were also there, and were in a much more festive and talkative state, and are actually looking forward to Monza, and were actually looking forward to the sprint race claiming it'll get them further up than normal Qually would do.

So, take from that what you will.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

In the past, they had PU advantage, which allowed them to bolt a lot of downforce, which helped both in S2 and tyre life. They can't afford that anymore. It's interesting to see if they have figured out the engine failure of Aston and their own (albeit the oldest one) and can they continue to run the engine harder in a demanding Monza.
One thing is for sure, they will use Bottas to give a toe to Lewis, like in Baku, even if it means compromising Bottas' situation. Hope Red Bull can do that as well.

I don’t know if I am misunderstanding what you are saying there, but no one is bolting on more downforce at Monza.

They did have a PU advantage, and they certainly seemed to regain it starting at Silverstone, judging by the straight line head-to-head comparisons since then.

At Monza, you maximize that advantage with the lowest drag spec. possible and you rely on that to get the laptime, living with whatever performance you get in the corners and relying on the car’s mechanical grip/setup.
