Were Ferrari hit by the Nico Rosberg curse at Monza?
The curse of Nico Rosberg, where teams or drivers featured in his pre-race social media posts, continues to haunt them. Ferrari experienced their worst fears confirmed when Rosberg wished them luck with a selfie posted on Instagram saying “Forza Ferrari” before the grand prix at Monza. This curse gained momentum earlier in the season when two separate social media posts affected the drivers involved. One post from the Red Bull garage preceded Max Verstappen’s failure to claim pole position in Hungary, and another post from the Mercedes garage preceded Lewis Hamilton’s fourth-place finish. Hoping to break the curse on their home soil, Ferrari has Carlos Sainz on pole position, with Charles Leclerc in third and Verstappen between them.
