The Italian Grand Prix is one of only two Grand Prix races that have been held every single year since the inaugural Formula One World Championship back in 1950, along with the British Grand Prix.
The event was first held in 1921, and since the Italian Grand Prix became part of the Formula 1 World Championship, the race was held at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, also known as the Monza Circuit, every year except for 1980.
In 1980, the race was held at the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari, also known as the Imola Circuit, since the Monza Circuit had to undergo a significant upgrade, and it returned to the calendar again in 1981.
There were multiple circuit layouts used at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza over the years, but since 2000, a Modern Grand Prix Circuit has been used, which consists of 11 turns and has a length of 5.793 kilometers (3.600 miles).
Over 118,000 fans can watch a race at the Monza Circuit, and the record lap hasn't changed for almost two decades. In 2004, Rubens Barrichello clocked 1:21.046 in his Ferrari on the 41st lap of the Grand Prix, his first win of the 2004 Formula One season after his teammate Michael Schumacher won 12 of the previous 14 races.
Since the Italian Grand Prix is one of the two races that were in the F1 calendar every single season, the list of winners is very long and it includes probably every legend of the sport, such as Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Niki Lauda, Ayrton Senna, Damon Hill, Fernando Alonso, Max Verstappen, but also Nelson Piquet, who won the only race held in Imola in 1980.
