Welcome back to another edition of Formula Oppo! My sense of humor is gone this week and this post is late, for that I apologize, but a death in the family will do that. This week we head to the fastest track where the downforce is low and the speeds are high.

Last week this happened. Nico found himself sitting on the pole. Riciardo got Mark Webber to drink his second place shoe-brew, and Lewis started from the bottom and now he’s here, started from the bottom now his whole fucking race finished in third. The Ferrari’s had a disappointing first turn and Max Verstappen proceeded to piss off the rest of the field in front of his Dutch fans.

This week we head to Monza. The fastest track and Ferrari’s home race. They should do well here, but they will probably shit the bed again. Look for Mercedes horsepower to reign supreme, but don’t count out the raging bulls with their aerodynamic advantages and increasingly powerful Renault Tag-Heuer engines. We could get to see Nico Hulkenburg’s first F1 win, but I doubt it. Or maybe the Haas team can use a few NASCAR tricks for flat out racing, just don’t tell them that the bank turn hasn’t been used at Monza since before the Chevy Monza.
