Formula 1 GP Imola
The Imola Grand Prix was originally not on the 2020 Formula 1 calendar, but this year, after an absence of fourteen years on the racing circuit in Italy, it will pass through the royal class of motor racing. This has everything to do with the fact that the coronavirus makes it difficult for Formula 1 to organise races outside Europe.
Third Italian Grand Prix 2020
From the moment the first Grands Prix was cancelled this season, Imola started to host a replacement race. After several weeks of negotiations between the circuit, the FOM and Liberty, it is now finally official that Formula 1 will race again on the 5.44 kilometer long circuit.
The circuit southeast of Bologna has seventeen corners with fairly long stretches. Officially the circuit is called Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari.
In 2006, Formula 1 was the last race on Imola. At that time it did so under the name 'Grand Prix of San Marino'. Compared to then, adjustments have been made to the track to make it safer. The Variant Bassa chicane for start and finish disappeared.
