Ferrari will race on home turf at the Italian GP in Monza, scheduled to take place from 9-11 September – they are expected to go all white this weekend

Ferrari are expected to race with celebratory colours at the Italian GP in honour of the 75th anniversary of the first racing car built in the Prancing Horse factory.

In fact, the team has published a tweet depicting Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz in tracksuits, some black and white shots that obviously do not yet reveal anything special about the chromatic choices adopted for this celebratory livery which could also be limited only to racing suits. This is also the 100th year anniversary of the historical Monza circuit.
