2022 F1 Italian GP – How to watch, session timings and more – Autosport

The Monza race concludes a triple-header and the final leg of the European season, with Max Verstappen in a dominant position thanks to four consecutive wins in France, Hungary, Belgian and the Netherlands, which has seen him extend his championship lead to 109 points.
After a difficult Belgian GP, Mercedes bounced back to act as Verstappen’s closest challengers at Zandvoort, as the team continues to struggle to find consistent performance from its W13 F1 car.
Off the track, the driver market is set to take its latest twist following the F1 Contract Recognition Board hearing which ruled in favour of Oscar Piastri’s deal with McLaren, as Alpine looks to fill its vacant race seat for 2023.
Pierre Gasly is strongly tipped to switch to Alpine, but it appears the move hinges on Red Bull being able to slot in IndyCar driver Colton Herta at AlphaTauri, but he currently doesn’t fulfil the FIA F1 superlicence requirements.
The Italian GP marks the last F1 race for three weeks due to the cancelled Russian GP not being replaced on the calendar, with the series taking a breather until the Singapore GP on the 30 September-2 October.
