There will also be a taste of MotoGP in the F1 Monza Grand Prix, with 15-time champion Giacomo Agostini waving the checkered flag at the finish line. Before qualifying he made a leap into the Ferrari motorhome where he spoke with Stefano Domenicali, head of the Formula One Group. “He was very nice as usual. When he invited me, he said: “I want the flag this year to be given by one of the most successful“. They could not have chosen better, preferring to focus on the historic icon rather than the charismatic Valentino Rossi who retired last November.

Giacomo Agostini remembers his curriculum a little with great pride. “18 tricolors, 15 world championships, 313 races won and 10 Tourist Trophy, for those who know what racing on the Isle of Man is. It’s hard to find another one who has won as much as me here in the middle“, He told ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’. The Temple of Speed ​​reminds him of the first test on the Agusta MV 500, his first world victory in 1966, in front of the home crowd. “The fans were so elated that they slapped me on the helmet to congratulate me, but by dint of slapping I was finally stunned“.

Here he did many shots of the three films in which he was the protagonist, he raced with single-seaters and this year he will be the godfather of the Italian GP. “As an Italian, I would like a Ferrari to win… It is a brand that has entered everyone’s heart. Even abroad they want the red to win. Ferrari is more important than the name of the driver who drives it. In my case we were talking about Agostini with MV Agusta, while here it is Ferrari with Leclerc or Sainz“. In the Monza paddock he will not be the only representative of the World Championship, Paolo Ciabatti and several Ducati personalities are also in the pit lane.
