Kevin Magnussen says that it is always a fantastic experience racing at the legendary Monza circuit. The track hosts the next round of the 2017 Championship this weekend, and Magnussen is very much anticipating the challenge of the track.

A mix of high top speeds and fast corners, Magnussen thinks that a lot of overtaking will happen throughout the race, claiming it to be the best on the calendar for passing competitors. He also mentioned the old circuit, which included a highly dangerous banked section.

"Monza is probably the best track for overtaking on the calendar. It’s always exciting racing there.Monza is a track with a lot of history and home to some of Formula One’s most passionate fans. It’s is all about the atmosphere. It’s got so much history and the Italian fans are really into it and they’re extremely passionate. It’s always a fantastic experience racing there. I have been around the old track several times. It’s crazy to think they used to race around that kind of track."

Guenther Steiner, Haas team principal added:  "With Dallara’s headquarters only an hour drive from Monza, I’m sure that a lot of their people will be there. It’s always good to be there because of the passion people have for the racecars. The history of Monza and the passion of the Tifosi give the Italian Grand Prix a great atmosphere, and with it being close to both of our technical partners, we want to do our best."
