Fórmula 1

The global coronavirus pandemic affected most of the world’s sports, and the Formula 1 was no exception. The top category of motorsport had to compress its calendar and many tests that were planned were canceled. In addition, some circuits had to receive the tests twice.

The Imola circuit will once again be part of the calendar of the Formula 1, even for once. The cancellation and restructuring of the calendar made the leaders have to go out to look for venues. That is why the Italian circuit is part of the category after 14 years.

Another novelty of this race is that the development of the activity was compressed. From the weekend of October 31 to November 1, the Imola Grand Prix will be held. In other words, there will only be action on Saturday and Sunday. This will be as proof of a project that they have from the organization of the Formula 1 to be able to make weekends shorter, and thus make longer seasons.

After eight races, the public returned to the Mugello circuit, in small numbers. However, at the last Grand Prix, in Sochi, approximately 30,000 spectators were allowed into the stands, which were almost packed, for the first time in the year. A statement from the circuit says that it was possible to obtain a presence of the people due to a “meticulous anti-covid health security protocol.”

The Imola circuit will return to the calendar after 14 years. In the last race held on this historic circuit, Michael Schumacher took the victory. The ‘Kaiser’ fought the race to the end against a young man Fernando Alonso, who would finally become champion at the controls of his Renault. For his part, it would be Schumacher’s last season with Ferrari.
