Marcus Ericsson plans to do everything he can to give the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team fans “a good show” at this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix.
The Autodromo Nazionale Monza has hosted a race every year bar one since the Formula One championship began in 1950 and Ericsson knows it is a “special race”.
“The race in Monza is always a very special one, and one of the most historic Grands Prix on the calendar.
“There are usually many fans there, giving the weekend a unique atmosphere.”
Monza is the fastest track on the calendar and the Swede believes it is “tricky but fun to drive.”
“The track itself is different from most of the others, with the low downforce levels making it tricky but fun to drive.
“There are good opportunities for overtaking, which is quite a different challenge to most other races of the year.”
The Italian Grand Prix is Alfa Romeo’s home race and Ericsson is hoping to give the fans a good result.
“Apart from that, it will be an important race for our team because it is our Title Sponsor’s home race.
“I look forward to meeting many Alfa Romeo fans throughout the weekend, and we will do everything we can to give them a good show.”
