34. Before the Italian GP | Grand Prix prep

Mama Mia, what a week! In a surprisingly unsurprising turn of events, Alfa Romeo replaced a Finn with a Finn. Valtteri Bottas’ multi-year Alfa contract means bleak afternoons will soon be but a distant memory. George Russell’s move to Mercedes put a swagger in his step that we hope never turns bleak. And Alex Albon joins Williams in an AlphaTauri T-Shirt.

Also, we’re in Monza! Which means an illustrious history, wild Tifosi, and an alarmingly speedy circuit. Boxes, let’s dive in!
