Ferrari to send Monza fans home happy

It has been eight years since the Prancing Horse last reigned supreme on Italian soil, with Fernando Alonso whipping the Monza faithful into a frenzy that day.

Red Bull and Mercedes have spoiled the party since then but hopes are high amongst the Ferrari faithful that the Scuderia can deliver this weekend.

Sebastian Vettel to win the race @ 20/21

Having failed to take advantage of his superior machine in Germany and Hungary, Vettel finally produced the dominant drive Formula 1 fans had been expecting in Belgium last weekend.

The German finished 11 seconds ahead of title rival Lewis Hamilton, who still leads the Drivers’ Championship by 17 points but admits he is concerned about the pursuing Ferrari.

Belgium is a track the Scuderia had struggled on in recent times due to its power-hungry layout but the upgraded Ferrari engine gives Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen an edge they have not had in a long time.

Monza is a similar circuit, with drivers at full throttle for 76 per cent of a lap, hence why we are expecting a similar outcome. Vettel has not won at Monza since 2013 but has finished on the podium in all but one renewal since his last victory.

Lewis Hamilton is a tempting 19/10 to get back to winning ways and is a regular winner in Italy, emerging victorious in four of the last six races. However, barring an accident or rain, it is tough see how Mercedes will keep pace with the more powerful Ferrari.

Max Verstappen podium position @ 9/4

The Red Bull still lags in third when compared to Ferrari and Mercedes in the power stakes but Verstappen was still able to do enough to take third in Belgium.

The young Dutchman continues to be at the top of his game right now and a similar performance could see him snatch a podium position in Monza. The 20-year-old has never finished better than seventh in Italy but had his race ruined last year by a grid penalty due to an engine change.

Like at Spa, he will need a little help from the racing gods again, with Valtteri Bottas (6/5 podium position) and Raikkonen (5/9) likely to be battling it out to fill the top three.
