The weather is set to be bright and sunny throughout this weekend's Italian Grand Prix at Monza as the 2021 Formula 1 title race approaches its climax.
Max Verstappen leads the Drivers' Championship by just three points over Lewis Hamilton but the high-speed Monza layout is expected to suit Mercedes, which could change the momentum in the championship battle.

Friday Monza weather
The weather will be remarkably similar for all three days at Monza, which is good news for the teams because they prefer predictability and consistency.
Friday will see slightly cloudy conditions with temperatures reaching 27 degrees Celcius during the afternoon when the opening practice session begins at 14:30 CET.
Saturday Monza weather
Saturday will see the second Sprint Qualifying of the 2021 F1 season with a 100km race where points are given to the top three drivers.
The conditions will be the same as Friday with very little wind, lots of sunny spells and temperatures reaching 27 degrees.
Sprint Qualifying begins at 16:30 CET when temperatures will still be near their peak on Saturday.
Sunday Monza weather
Sunday is expected to be the hottest day of the Italian GP weekend with temperatures reaching 28 degrees when the race starts at 15:00 CET.
The warm conditions could play a factor during the race since Pirelli have brought the C2-C3-C4 tyre range, so if the pace at the front is relentless, don't rule out a two-stop race.
Due to the warm air temperatures, the track temperature at Monza could be in excess of 40 degrees.
