Sorry, you have not enough rights to view this image. Four days on from a difficult Belgian Grand Prix, Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel were on duty at Monza for the first of three rounds on Italian soil this season. The race at Monza is usually the meeting point for Prancing Horse fans from around the world, as they pack the grandstands on this track on the outskirts of Milan, in the hope they will have good cause to stage a track invasion at the end of the race to get to the podium to celebrate with their favourite drivers. In a season so far run behind closed doors, this is probably the track where the absence of fans will be felt the most.

Emotions. Sebastian also had a word for the Scuderia’s fans. “Monza has always had a special place in my heart, because it was here in 2008 that I scored my first win, with a Ferrari-powered car (Scuderia Toro Rosso, Ed’s note,) and here that I have so often felt the support of the crowd. It will be sad not to be able to count on them in the grandstands, especially as we are struggling this season. From our side, we will do all we can to get the most out of the car. It would be nice to give our supporters something to smile about,” added Seb. “Knowing this is my last year with the team makes this race even more emotional. Maybe we can’t fight for the win but it will still be important to be able to say we did all we could to get the best possible result. That’s the goal I have set myself for this season; to leave Ferrari knowing I have left no stone unturned.”
