Mugello willing to host Formula 1 again if needed

In 2020, Mugello threw itself into the role of replacement Grand Prix when the corona pandemic prevented Formula 1 from running outside Europe at the start of the season. For this season the Italian circuit is not on the calendar, but it could be.

If it is up to Mugello the pinnacle of motor sport will return if the need arises. If, for example, races are cancelled in October then Mugello is prepared to fill the gap again, Federico Ignesti hinted.

Mugello is ready for it

He told Corriere dello Sport "We are ready for it. If Liberty Media comes we won't say no to anyone. We'll see what happens," says the mayor of Scarperia and San Piero.

The MotoGP races at the Muggelo circuit this weekend, as does the Moto3. The motorsport world was shocked on Sunday by the death of Jason Dupasquie. The Swiss rider crashed during qualifying and died of his injuries. He was only nineteen years old.
