F1 Italian Grand Prix 2023: Start time, grid positions, weather forecast and how to watch on TV

Max Verstappen is out to secure a record-breaking tenth consecutive F1 race win today at the Italian Grand Prix, but Carlos Sainz stands in his way.

The 2023 Formula One season has turned into a procession, the likes of which will have never been seen before if the two-time world champion breaks Sebastian Vettel’s all-time record at Monza.

The conditions are certainly set to favour the Red Bull with no rain expected and the famous Autodromo’s long straights providing ample opportunity to overtake with DRS, should he find himself in traffic.

It would be a major shock if Verstappen loses his streak here but stranger things have happened, with the Dutchman having to settle for second on the grid behind Ferrari pole-sitter Sainz.

Charles Leclerc lines up in third for the Scuderia.
