Monza like Silverstone

The second free practice session will take place on Saturday between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m., before the 100-kilometer sprint qualifier from 4.30 p.m., which will determine the starting grid for the Grand Prix.

A third Grand Prix will take place in this form by the end of the season, but it is not yet clear which one.

Three Grands Prix from here Monza

Between now and the Italian Grand Prix, three other Grands Prix will take place with classic qualifications: in Hungary the 1is August, in Belgium on August 29 and in the Netherlands on September 5. At Monza, Pierre Gasly will try to repeat his incredible feat of 2020, where he managed to win on his AlphaTauri, thus putting France at 24 years of famine. But the two champions of the championship, Max Verstappen (Red Bull) and Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) have a good chance of fighting once again for pole position.
