This is also talked about in the paddock of monza

Ferrari experiences a difficult formula 1 home game in monza. The red racing car is only going behind, and the range on the high-speed circuit won’t be full in corona times either.

But there are other talking points ahead of the eighth grand prix of the season on sunday (15.10 am/RTL and sky).

VETTEL AS TEAM BOSS?

What is sebastian vettel doing now?? The ferrari driver has not yet made a decision about his future public. The only thing that has been certain since may is that he will have to leave the scuderia after six years. How would it be if he became team principal in formula 1? "I’m too young for that," the 33-year-old said amusedly. But you never know what will happen. "But even if you drive a team yourself, your influence is limited because you have to stick to regulations," explained the four-time world champion. As far as his own future is concerned, he will have to wait "a while".

DOES SAINZ REGRET THE FERRARI CHANGE?

It sounded great. Carlos sainz leaves mclaren to succeed sebastian vettel at ferrari next season. But while mclaren is fighting in the front midfield, the scuderia has slipped through to the rear. Get well soon? Not in sight. "I feel very comfortable with the decision," affirmed the 26-year-old sainz, who has "100 percent confidence" in the ferrari staff. "If i was given the chance 100 times, i would say yes every time again."

CLAIRE AND FRANK WILLIAMS LEAVE

for more than 40 years, co-founder frank williams and later his daughter claire were co-team bosses of the traditional british racing team. After the monza weekend, the family leaves williams; the team has long been owned by a u.S. Investment company. "It’s a shame that this chapter is ending. But the legacy will remain," said lewis hamilton, praising frank williams for his honesty. Sebastian vettel also felt a bit nostalgic, having first tested in a williams-BMW in 2005. "Frank didn’t look convinced," he recalled with a laugh. "I associate williams with a lot of success and great performances in the 90s."

ARRIVEDERCI PARTY MODE!

From monza on the drivers were only allowed to use one engine setting for the qualifying and the race. Mercedes in particular has so far benefited from the so-called party mode, which releases additional power on one lap. Will the silver arrows in italy actually be slowed down a bit? "It will make a small difference in qualifying," says valtteri bottas. "But it seems that overall we will have a better time in the race if we only use one mode."
