Verstappen hoping to end Monza struggles at Italian GP


AP Sports Writer

MILAN (AP) — Formula One leader Max Verstappen is feeling unusually optimistic about his chances of finally earning a good result at the Italian Grand Prix. Monza is the only circuit where Verstappen has never finished on the podium. The Red Bull driver’s best result is fifth in 2018. Verstappen did not even manage to finish the previous two Italian GPs. But the Dutch driver will take to the track on Sunday on the back of four straight wins and with his Red Bull having superior straight-line speed all season. He also holds a 109-point advantage over Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc and teammate Sergio Pérez.
