This year the first Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix will be held, but it is certainly not the first Grand Prix at Imola. Imola has a rich history in Formula 1 and was continuously on the Formula 1 calendar from 1980 to 2006. Among the current drivers, Kimi Raikkonen is the only one who experienced the race in 2006.
Test drive before the Grand Prix
Stroll has explored the Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit this week in an old GP2 car, reports Motorsport.com. Due to strict F1 test restrictions, the Racing Point driver is not allowed to drive a Formula 1 car at Imola, which is why Stroll drove an old Prema GP2 car. Prema is owned by his father Lawrence Stroll.
The Young Canadian is certainly not the first driver to explore the Imola circuit before racing. A few weeks ago Valtteri Bottas had already been seen in a Mercedes AMG A45 on the Italian circuit.
