Charles Leclerc is favourite to follow up his maiden Formula 1 victory in Belgium with another at Monza this weekend, so has he established himself as Ferrari’s lead driver?
The latest episode of The Autosport Podcast previews the Italian Grand Prix and asks if Leclerc’s run of form means the team will now galvanise around him.
But Sebastian Vettel’s qualities are also discussed, as well of the question of whether a crowd-pleasing victory in front of the tifosi might bring his difficult 12 months without a win to an end.
We also celebrate the fact Formula 1 has a new deal that will keep F1 at the venue for another five seasons, and ask what Max Verstappen will be able to achieve from the back of the grid for Red Bull this weekend.
