    Yup, still early days though. But forecast is frightening right now.

    circuit stages are easy to clean them from snow in few minutes.

    I think they choose them exactly because of the possibility of snow!
    Don't think there's a risk of cancellation. there will be (maybe) snow, but not that much to be an issue! the forecast says snow on Friday, mix rain/snow for Saturday and Sunday (more on Sunday). It's most possible to have snow that don't really stick on the road.
    Worst case having lots of slush.

    With slush/tons of rain I wonder what tire is best, the "snow" tire without studs (maybe not enough drainage) or the "superwet" one (maybe too hard compound?).

    EDIT: One thing that is worth mentioning: the Saturday stages are super fast.
    thanks, the Saturday stages look really good and interesting.

    the circuit stages not so much, so ill definitely hope for some unpredicted weather.

    At least the super soft option which is often used in Monte, is not available for Monza. Apparently it would require colder temperatures (how much colder is it in Monte than what we're getting now?)

Previous years some corners had massive "unmovable" barriers so that might be an option.
    They can use concrete blocks. You can hit them, but they will rip your wheel off.

    If have even seen the use of containers, but those seemed pretty dangerous.

    Maybe they simply don't have the supersofts available and this is just an excuse?

    Possible because Monza is last event with Michelin WRC tyres.

    (Mirek knows but for others: WRC uses different tyres than Rally2/R5)
