On the occasion of his 100th grand prix, Pedro de la Rosa is understandably rather excited.

For all the latest F1 odds on the Italian Grand Prix, which takes place at the Monza circuit, visit Sky Bet.

Pedro de la Rosa: "Making it to 100 grands prix is something very special and I'm very motivated ahead of Italy, not only because of the 100 mark, but because I'm certain that we can be even more competitive. Monza is a similar circuit to Canada, where maximum speed and brake stability are important; and these are our strengths. I love consecutive races because I like continuity and, besides, Monza is one of my favourite circuits because it's very different to the rest. So, because of all this, I'm really excited ahead of this grand prix."

Narain Karthikeyan: "Monza is a circuit that I really like and an interesting track for us. We're bringing a specific package for this event, with a low drag wing which we hope will help us to have a good performance. It's a fantastic circuit where I love to race with legendary corners such as the Parabolica and the Curva di Lesmo. I hope not to run into bad luck at this grand prix and to be able to convert a good performance into a positive result."

Luis Perez-Sala, Team Principal: "Once again we arrive at an emblematic circuit; a classic on the calendar. Monza is the quickest track in the championship and we come with good sensations since, given the nature of the F112, our car should adapt well to this circuit. Our maximum speed is good and so is our braking so I'm confident that we will be able to perform well. It will also be a special race because Pedro will be celebrating his 100th Formula 1 grand prix and we're quite excited about that. Very few drivers are able to stay up there for that long and gain the respect of everyone in the way that Pedro has. He's an admirable driver and person and we're extremely proud for him to reach this mark with us."
