" The oldest track in F1 motor sports is for many the highlight of the F1 calendar.

Autodromo Nazionale Monza is a functioning monument to the history of Formula 1 and motor sports.

Built in 1922 by 3,500 workers it has been an ever-present date on the motor sports calendar apart from the war years when racing was suspended. It would be impossible to recount the many historical Formula One moments that occurred on the tarmac of this track but Giuseppe Farina winning the first world championship for Alfa Romeo in 1950, Juan Manuel Fangio claiming Maserati’s first world championship win in 1953, Mario Andretti’s great come back for
Ferrari in 1982 and the list goes on."
