Welcome back to race day at Monza and the Italian Grand Prix, the 15th round of the 2005 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Scattered showers have been predicted all week for Sunday and they arrived in the form of a heavy thunderstorm last night which has left the sky a little hungover this morning. It is forecast, however, that the day will brighten to reach an ambient temperature high of 29 degrees Celsius, but the chance of showers remains.

The famed Italian autodrome is one of the fastest tracks on the calendar and measures 5.793 km. The race will run over 53 laps (306.720 km) and will start at 14.00 hours local time, which is two hours ahead of GMT.
