As Max Verstappen homes in on a third world championship, history beckons for the Dutchman ahead of one of the most famous races on the calendar in the Italian Grand Prix.
It's a matter of when and not if the Red Bull star picks up his third crown, and while he cannot to that at Monza, he can set a new F1 record by winning 10 consecutive races in a row.
Unlike at Zandvoort, where he matched Sebastian Vettel's record last time out, he won't have as many fans in the stands cheering him on, as a home race for Ferrari will leave the locals hoping for the Maranello outfit to somehow upset the odds.
Mercedes, McLaren or even Aston Martin will also be looking to stop Red Bull ahead of what promises to be a memorable weekend one way or another.
The weekend starts with two practice sessions as the teams look to gain track knowledge ahead of Saturday's qualifying and Sunday's race.
