In the year 2006, took place the last Time a formula 1 race in Imola. In the Wake of the corona crisis, it has been recently speculated about a possible Comeback of the tradition route. In theory, a Grand Prix there would be at least possible, because the track has renewed the necessary FIA Grade 1 license in this week.
"After the renewal of the license, we are able to host a formula 1 Grand Prix," explains course Director, Uberto Selvatico Estense. The Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari meet "all of the FIA's required Standards". The most realistic date for a race in the 13. September, because the formula 1 moves to a week earlier in Monza.
Currently, there are no dates on the Grand Prix of Italy at 6. September and beyond. Actually, the formula 1 would like to start an overseas tour, but even more Europe are not excluded from the race, after the king class has canceled the race in Baku, Singapore, and Suzuka on Friday officially.
in that year, on 24. June is a formula 1 car will race in Imola. On this day, AlphaTauri places on the track, a so-called film day. The Italian Team completed its film days actually, in Misano, must Dodge, because the track is blocked by a MotoGP Test.
Imola is a logical choice, because the track is close to the factory in Faenza. In addition, you could have a small advantage, if it should be in 2020, in fact, a race in Imola. Pierre Gasly and Daniil Kwjat could not do so already familiar with the distance traveled, but under real race conditions.
Because in the case of a film day with one of the current cars can have a maximum of 100 kilometres and only demo tyres used by Pirelli. It is planned, however, yet another Test in Imola with the old Toro Rosso STR13 from the season 2018. This would not fall under the Test limits for current and prior year cars.
Here, however, remains to be seen whether Honda is still a viable 2018er-can provide the Motor, because the current drives may not be driven at such a private test is also. Mercedes completed already this week, a Test at Silverstone, with the 2018er-car, Racing, Point plans at the same place, a movie day with the current cars.
