When people think of Italian motors, they think of the Ferrari car brand, which has, in multiple occasions, been recognized as the most prestigious brand in the world. Ferrari produces both luxury cars and cars for Formula 1 races. Ferrari also holds the record of the most number of victories in Formula 1 as constructor (16 wins, with Williams as second with nine).
A Formula 1 season is made up of up to 20 Grand Prix races. The Italian Grand Prix has been part of the Formula 1 championship since the first edition of the championship, back in 1950. The British Grand Prix is the only other that has been held every year since the birth of Formula 1.
Except in 1980, the Italian Grand Prix has always been held in the Monza Circuit (Autodromo di Monza), a venue close to Milan that, in the Italian culture, has always been associated with speed and luxury.
