Description

Adrenalin addicts who'd love to see a Ferrari purring ahead should head to Italy's famous Monza racetrack for this annual Formula One event, also known as the Gran Premio Santander D'Italia. Monza is near the headquarters of Italian icon Ferrari so you can imagine the passion for the hometown hero. High speed, high performance and high adrenaline is what you can expect from Formula One. The "formula" refers to restrictions and rules placed by race officials and teams, but don't worry, these machines still reach race speeds reach 360 km/h (220 mph) with engines revving up to 18,000 RPMs and the cars are capable of pulling in excess of 5 G-force through the curves. With this kind of performance it is no surprise F1 is the world's most expensive sport. Race weekends are a spectacle even if you are not an automotive afficionado. Typically the first day is reserved for pit tours and inspecting the machines, the next day is for time trials, and race day is usually on Sundays. Sitting in the audience you'll feel your seat rattle as the cars wizz by and you'll be envied by the nearly 55 million fans watching the race on television.
