This track is located at Imola, in the northern part of Italy. The area around Imola is home to several racing car manufacturers – namely Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Minardi (now AlphaTauri), and Dallara.
Following the Second World War, the town launched a program to try to improve the local economy. Four local motor racing enthusiasts proposed the construction of a new road linking existing public roads, which was used by the local car manufacturers to test their prototypes
This track was reintroduced last year in 2020 due to the unprecedented COVID-19 situation. This vintage track has been around since 1953 and home to Formula 1 since 1963. The track quickly became a fan and driver favorite and made its appearance again in 2021. Weather conditions in this part of the country are always unpredictable and thus leads to some unpredictable racing. The track has always provided top quality races that keep viewers hooked on to their TV screens and seats. Hoping that the 63 lap stunning race that we saw in 2020 makes a repeat here. Let’s continue to see how this dynamic track and its race shapes the championship table.
