Vettel and Leclerc preview Formula 1's return to Imola

F1 returns to Ferrari's homeland this weekend with Imola playing host to a third race in Italy this season. Despite all his experience, Sebastian Vettel has never raced at Imola but is looking forward to getting his chance, whilst Charles Leclerc is looking forward to returning. 

It has been a year to forget for the Scuderia but Vettel will be hoping for some success when he races at Imola for the first time. His teammate Charles Leclerc raced there in Formula Renault so it will be interesting to see how the pair go this weekend.

Imola does not allow any mistakes

"I have never raced at Imola. I was there in 2006, and that’s the only memory I have of Imola when I was a support driver for the BMW Sauber team. I haven’t even walked the track and so this will be my first ever race there. I think it is a great track, which doesn’t allow for mistakes. I’m very much looking forward to finally driving here this weekend," the German said in his preview on the Ferrari website.

Charles Leclerc has a little bit of experience and he added: "I’ve already raced at Imola twice in Formula Renault. It’s a track that I love and really enjoy driving at. The circuit is very technical and where there is very little room for mistakes. I think that most drivers who are yet to discover it will love it there."
