All of the vital information ahead of F2's tenth round of 2019


The FIA Formula 2 family suffered an immense loss after one of its brighter stars, Anthoine Hubert, tragically died in a horrific accident on Lap 2 of last week’s Feature Race at Spa-Francorchamps. The loveable Frenchman was in his rookie season and was highly regarded by the entire motorsport community.

Not only was he a great driver, but he was also an amazing character whose infectious smile lit up our paddock. This season, he had achieve two superb wins in Monaco and on home-soil at Le Castellet.

The F2 and F3 community gathered alongside many other motorsport members on the starting grid of F3 Race 2 last Sunday for a minute of silence in remembrance of Anthoine’s vibrant life.

The paddock reunites this week at Monza in Italy for the tenth round of the season. With their hearts still in Spa, the teams and the drivers will race for Anthoine to honour their fierce competitor and their friend whom they miss dearly.

Mario Isola, Pirelli Head of F1 and Car Racing

“After an extremely difficult weekend in Spa, following the tragic passing of Anthoine Hubert, we move on to Monza. Our home circuit is also known as the ‘Temple of Speed’, which accurately describes the track characteristics.

Finding the right compromise with grip despite the low downforce levels is always a challenge, as well as managing the compounds against the considerable stresses that are imposed on them by this historic circuit.

 Another difficulty will be balancing the set-up of the car in different weather conditions, as at this time of year both hot and cool temperatures are possible, which clearly affects how the front and rear work together.”

Season Stats


34 The points gap at the top of the standings between Drivers’ Championship leader Nyck de Vries (200 points) and second-placed Nicholas Latifi (166).

4 Latifi has taken the most victories so far this season, winning in Bahrain, Azerbaijan, Spain and Hungary.

15 The number of different drivers who have led a race so far this season.

231 The number of corners due for Sunday's sprint race. Monza will provide the race with the fewest number of corners this season.



Sauber Junior Team by Charouz’s Car 12 (Juan Manuel Correa) and BWT Arden’s Car 19 (Anthoine Hubert) will not be entered into the event in respect of the tragic event at Spa-Francorchamps. Trident’s Car 21 (Ralph Boschung) will also not be entered into the event.

The F2 race lap record at Monza is 1:32.921, set by Jordan King with MP Motorsport in 2017.

Monza has never missed a round of the GP2 or FIA Formula 2 championship since its original inception in 2005.

ART have started every Feature Race here from pole position since the beginning of the modern era of FIA Formula 2 (Nobuharu Matsushita in 2017 and George Russell in 2018).

If Nyck De Vries wins this weekend in Monza he will match Artem Markelov for the record highest number of wins in the modern era of FIA Formula 2. A win in both races would see the Dutchman surpass the Russian. Nicholas Latifi would need two wins to match Markelov's win record.

DAMS (307 points) have a 65 point lead at the top of the Teams’ Championship, ahead of UNI-Virtuosi Racing (242).

Data (GMT+2)


Free Practice: 13.00 – 13.45
Qualifying: 16.55 – 17.25
