Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen currently sits at the top of the Formula 1 World Championship standings in 2023 with a healthy lead. This season, the Red Bull Racing driver scored 339 points. Sergio Perez, Verstappen's teammate, is the closest competitor, although he is still 138 points behind. If Max Verstappen wins Sunday's Italian Grand Prix in Monza, often known as the "Temple of Speed," he would become the first driver in Formula One history to win 10 consecutive races. With his victory in the Dutch Grand Prix, Verstappen equalled Sebastian Vettel's record of nine consecutive victories. Due to the unusual nature of the circuit's lengthy straights and chicanes, each team must bring its own low-downforce aerodynamic package to the event, which may lead to some unexpected reshuffling of the standings come Sunday. Two free practice sessions are scheduled on Friday, followed by a final practice session on Saturday. During the Saturday afternoon, the qualifying session will be conducted.

F1 Italian Grand Prix 2023: Where to Watch in India
The next 2023 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix is planned to be shown live on several global streaming platforms.

These perspectives include an in-car view of their favourite driver, access to statistical data, and a live video feed of the race circuit.
Similar material is available to SkySports subscribers. As a consequence of the discontinuation of F1's television streaming privileges in some countries, such as the United Kingdom and India, those residing in these nations are required to get a subscription to an online streaming platform in order to receive race coverage. The Formula 1 app allows enthusiasts to conveniently monitor the events by providing them with up-to-date tracking information.
F1 Italian Grand Prix 2023: Interesting Facts about Monza
The 53-lap 2023 Italian Grand Prix will be held on September 3 at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. The course is 5.793km long. The Italian Grand Prix was originally held at the Monza circuit in 1922, making it the oldest track on the current Formula 1 schedule. The first configuration of the Monza circuit included a length over 10km, with a 5.5km road segment that has a resemblance to the current layout, alongside a 4.5km loop. This loop underwent redevelopment throughout the 1950s, transforming it into a high-speed banked oval.
The Italian Grand Prix has been contested at Monza every year except 1980 when it was moved to Imola. This makes Monza one of just four remaining Formula 1 circuits that participated in the first Formula 1 World Championship in 1950. Monza, which is located on the grounds of the biggest city park in Europe, has a unique place in the hearts of Formula 1 fans, especially the passionate local "Tifosi," who support Ferrari almost exclusively.
