I'm really excited about Monza this weekend. Who wouldn't be? The world championship is building to a thrilling climax with four drivers from two equally matched deadly-rival teams, all in with a shout of claiming the title. That doesn't happen very often.
But if I'm honest, my anticipation about catching the flight to Milan's Linate airport has little to do with the title fight. After all, there are still four races after this one, so there's still a long way to go.
And let's face it, the odds on a thrilling race are long on the evidence of the previous Grands Prix we have watched this year. Ferrari, McLaren and their drivers might be neck-and-neck, but the actual racing spectacle has been poor this season.
No, the real reason I can't wait for my flight to Italy is simply down to the place I'm heading for. If you love motor racing, you love Monza.
