Have Ferrari been hit by the Nico Rosberg curse at Monza?
Ferrari’s worst fears were confirmed at Monza when Nico Rosberg posted a selfie wishing them luck, as his pre-race social media posts have previously brought bad luck to teams or drivers. This “Rosberg curse” has been seen earlier this season in Hungary, where his social media posts had a negative impact. For example, Max Verstappen failed to claim pole position after Rosberg posted from the Red Bull garage, and Lewis Hamilton finished fourth after Rosberg’s post from the Mercedes garage. Ferrari will now hope to break this curse on their home soil at Monza, with Carlos Sainz on pole position and Charles Leclerc in third, with Verstappen in between.
