Formula 1 Gran Premio Santander D'italia 2011

It's just September and we're on the last European race in the calender, we need more European classic races instead of new and boring Middle-Eastern races!!!

Monza will be the first in this season to have dual-DRS zone with individual detection zone. I just do not get why in Canada and Valencia, there are two DRS zone but with just one detection. Anyways, I just don't hope the activation zone will be too long in length like Spa and Turkey.

Race Date: 11 Sep 2011
Circuit Name: Autodromo di Monza
Number of Laps: 53
Circuit Length: 5.793 km
Race Distance: 306.720 km
Lap Record: 1:21.046 - R Barrichello (2004)

Be interesting to see if Rosberg/Schumacher in the Mercedes show some form in Monza with the long stretches

Guesses on where the DRS zones will be? I am guessing on the main straight and on the back straight going into parabolica? I can't see them using DRS through curva grande, thanks to all the 'safety' bs.

I'm also wondering if we might see some interesting race strategies. If the two DRS zones are really long, anyone in the lead or out on their own could have a significant disadvantage and have significantly slower laptimes. Almost like at an oval.

The second one could be after Lesmo 2 and along the Curva Del Serraglio...
Or after the first chicane and along the Curva Biassono...

Pressure sensors for high speed perhaps.

That was an exciting Q3 for sure, Vettel with another great performance.

Great recovery after power sliding it a lap earlier.
