A tan solo 30Km al sureste de Bolonia, y 60 Km. de la factoría de Ferrari, es como Muguello, una pista ampliamente utilizada por Ferrari para test y eventos publicitarios.

Famoso por los terribles accidentes que costaron la vida a Roland Ratzemberger y a Ayrton Senna en 1994, las curvas del Tamburello y Villeneuve tuvieron que ser rediseñadas, perdiendo mucha velocidad y encanto, pero gracias a su buen trazado de curvas, pendientes y peraltes, el circuito sigue guardando su encanto y sigue siendo uno de los grandes circuitos de Formula Uno.

Desde 2007, el circuito ha experimentado una serie de mejoras importantes con un 'bypass' a la chicane Variante Bassa agregada para autos, lo que hace que el trazado desde Rivazza 2 hasta la primera chicane Tamburello sea totalmente plana, al igual que el circuito original. En 2008 se construyó una nueva instalación de boxes y paddock, mientras que los antiguos garajes de boxes y paddock fueron demolidos y completamente reconstruidos y el pitlane fue ampliado y repavimentado.

Básicamente, es un circuito que exige de una alta carga aerodinámica, de alta exigencia de motor y no muy exigente para los frenos, en el que se puede ganar bastante tiempo por vuelta si se aprovechan bien los pianos.

Algunas previas de los equipos:

Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "We've started the season with a good team result in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). Our aim is to keep progressing and maximising performance at each race. There are still areas we need to work on to try and unlock that extra bit of potential that can make us more competitive, but we're pushing hard to make those steps. The first race really showed how strong the competition is this year, which is going to make for some exciting on-track battles that I'm looking forward to.

"It's great to be back at Imola again this season. As always, we'll be aiming to maximise the time on-track to get the most out of the car in preparation for qualifying and the race. Track position is important in Imola with limited chances for overtakes. Turn One will be the best opportunity to make a pass, and it could be tricky elsewhere with the track being so narrow. We'll be pushing to make the most of the weekend and score some good points."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "I'm looking forward to getting back in the car after a positive start in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). We secured a good result in that first race, and it felt amazing to make my debut for the team. I was a bit unfortunate with the damage we found on the car after the race, and there's still a few more things to learn and get to grips with which takes a bit of time. But given that, I'm confident we've got a lot more performance left to unlock. We've been working hard back at the factory to understand how we can build on that solid start. I completely expected it to take a few races to feel comfortable in the car, but I'm feeling better after race one than I had done at the same point in previous years, so that's really promising.


"Imola's up next and we're going to give it plenty. It's an iconic old-school track with a fast and flowing layout that provides little room for error. I'm really excited to be heading back there after last year's race where I finished on the podium. I'm definitely planning on bringing that experience from last year to help the team this weekend and fight for those points."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "We head to Imola this week after making a strong start to the season in the opening race, but it's crucial we stay focused and consolidate it. The team and our Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) colleagues are working hard as always to optimise our package and give us the best chance to fight for good points this weekend. At the same time, we continue to concentrate on our reliability and operational effectiveness to deliver to our full potential.


"It's clear that several of our competitors have taken a step forward, although it's difficult to be certain of the true running order from one race. This will only become clearer as the season progresses, with different conditions at circuits with different characteristics.


"We're looking forward to racing at Imola for a second consecutive season, this time with three full days of running that will allow us to optimise the set-up. Imola poses a fresh challenge from the previous race, with different cornering profiles and a narrower track layout. There are fewer overtaking possibilities than at Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), which increases the importance of track position and our performance on Saturday. On Sunday we'll need to be ready for an exciting race which will pose a number of opportunities and challenges, just as we saw last year. We're looking forward to another thrilling weekend of Formula 1."

Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - Aston MartinFollowing a three-week break, the FIA Formula One World Championship bursts back into life at Italy's historic Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), the venue for round two of the 2021 series.

Extensively re-profiled after a lengthy stint hosting the San Marino Grand Prix, the track is a sparkling blend of the old and new: sweeping, high-speed corners hemmed in by unyielding concrete barriers and modern pit and paddock facilities constructed in the late 2000s. In short, it's a place that rewards commitment.


Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "Imola was such a great challenge last year. It's an incredibly fast circuit with so little run-off - the balance between risk and reward is immense, so it's incredibly satisfying when you get it right. As a team, I think we all wanted more last time out in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), so we're all treating Imola as a fresh opportunity. We've seen that there's a bunch of teams that are all extremely closely matched - so getting out of the blocks cleanly and running smoothly in every session will be vital if we want to make a difference."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I'm excited to get going this weekend. It's been good to have that little bit of an extra gap between these first two races - this year's calendar won't always be so forgiving - but that just gave us an extra opportunity to look at the data and understand where we need to improve the AMR21. As a track, Imola is a very different challenge to Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir): it's a track that you can really attack, so I'm looking forward to it."


The second race of a new season, on a largely unproven racetrack, promises spectacle and unpredictability. Our strategy engineers have analysed historic data and recent car performance to predict the key factors that could determine the result on Sunday, presented here in partnership with our Title Partner Cognizant.


• Set-up: the track has a wide range of slow, medium and high-speed corners, but the removal of the old pit-straight chicane tempts teams into reducing drag for that blast from Rivazza all the way to Tamburello, which in turn hurts cornering performance. Like Montreal (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/12/montreal)'s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, it's a high-speed track with minimal run-off.


• Overtaking. It's not easy. In fact, only Singapore and Monaco often a greater passing challenge. Looking at last year's race, and discounting the first lap and Safety Car restart, there were just six overtakes - and five of those required DRS. This year, Formula One has announced a longer DRS zone, so expect more overtakes this time out.


• Imola has the highest pit-time loss of the season. It takes around 28 seconds to box and return to the racetrack. That pushes teams towards a conventional one-stop strategy and makes any unplanned pit-stops particularly costly.


• Predicting Safety Cars is tricky due to the lack of relevant historical data (the race was last conventionally run in 2006). Last year, there was one Safety Car appearance and a single Virtual Safety Car period, but the lack of run-off and trackside gravel traps means there's always potential for caution periods - potentially turning the race on its head.


A lap of Imola needs constant vigilance: it's fast and unforgiving, requires maximum commitment from a driver battling within a narrow set-up window, and with a car constantly deploying or harvesting energy. Our official Cyber Security Partner SentinelOne presents the key technical facts and stats behind a single lap of the track.


It's 440m from pole position to the first braking point at the Turn-Two chicane - that's a relatively average distance across the season, so doesn't offer much opportunity for slipstreaming opportunities into the braking zone.


Expect top speeds of around 325km/h (200mph) on that run between Rivazza and the Tamburello chicane. The corner itself is taken in fourth gear, at around 170km/h (105mph).


The lap is dominated by high-speed corners - the Tamburello, Villeneuve and Alta 'chicanes' require both precision and commitment. The fastest corner on the track is Piratella, a daunting, sixth-gear downhill left-hander taken at 220km/h (135mph).


Imola is one of seven anti-clockwise tracks on the 2021 calendar. The resulting high incidence of left-handers places additional stress on the front-right tyre. Pirelli brings its C2, C3 and C4 tyres to Imola - the same as Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir).


The MGU-K - the motor-generator unit that gathers energy under braking - is almost constantly busy either harvesting or deploying energy around a lap of Imola. In fact, only Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) is more intensive.


80BC: The sleepy town of Imola has long been associated with speed. It hosted races as far back as 80BC, when the Romans competed at the Cornelii Forum - an amphitheatre for gladiatorial chariot racing!


5: The lowest number of cars to finish a Grand Prix at Imola. The first occurrence was in 1982, due to a political dispute that saw only 14 cars start. History repeated in 1985, when five cars again made the finish, many running short of fuel in the closing laps. Eventual winner Alain Prost was so low on fuel that he was later disqualified because his car was underweight.


1963: Year of the first Imola Grand Prix - a non-championship event run to Formula One rules. It was dominated by Jim Clark in his Lotus-Climax, who lapped all but one of the 13 starters.


28: The number of times the circuit has hosted a Formula One World Championship Grand Prix. Its first race was in 1980, standing in for Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) as the venue for that year's Italian GP.


7: Imola is one of seven anti-clockwise circuits on the 2021 calendar. The others are Abu Dhabi, Azerbaijan, Brazil, Singapore, Saudi Arabia and the USA.


5G: Turn Nine (Piratella) is the fastest and most thrilling corner on the circuit. Drivers pull lateral loads of 5G through that particular corner. With very little run-off...

Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - Alfa RomeoDimidium facti qui coepit habet, wrote Horace once upon a time: he who has begun is half done. As we head to the country from which the Roman lyrical poet hailed for this weekend's Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, those wise words ring both true and foreboding. The first race of the season, in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) all of more than two weeks ago, was indeed a solid beginning, with both cars in the fight for the points for the duration of the event - a far cry to where we were in 2020.The team has made a big step forward over the winter, rejoining the midfield pack in a battle for a place in Q3 on Saturday and a top ten finish on Sunday. With the margins razor-thin, every small detail becomes crucial, every gain means a leap over a rival and every mistake takes you back rows on the grid. It's early days, but the season is shaping up to be one of marginal gains at every end of the grid (and right in the middle, too) - which, in turn, makes it fun for the neutral viewer.


A still very long way ahead awaits, though: early signs remain such until they're confirmed by further evidence of improvement, and a single event is obviously not enough to guarantee the sunlit uplands lay in front of us. Indeed, at best we're only halfway through our work (if not even before that): the other dimidium facti still remains to be completed. For, despite the steps forward we made ahead of our 2021 debut, we still have to work to bring home points. Every push for a thousandth of a second, every little gain in the garage, in the cockpit or under the pit gantry - everything pushes us closer to where we want to be.


It will take hard work, dedication and commitment, knowing our rivals are toiling just as hard to nudge ahead of us: but hard graft need not scare us. As Horace himself also said, nil sine magno vita labore dedit mortalibus - life grants us nothing without hard work.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "We had a solid start of the season and that's a good basis upon which to build, starting from this weekend. We have made a considerable step forward in performance, possibly one of the biggest across the field, and we are now in the midfield fight, but the top ten is where you have to finish to bring home the points so that has to be our objective for Imola.


"Last year, we had our best result of the season here and we can take that as an encouragement, although we know the form we showed in 2020 is only a vague indicator of what we can expect this time around. We have seen how difficult it is to overtake around this circuit, so our Saturday performance will be crucial to make sure we get to the race in the best possible position to bring home points."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We are confident we can be in the middle of the fight for points in Imola as well, but we are under no illusions it is going to be easy. We saw in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) that even a good weekend doesn't mean a top ten finish, so we know we have to keep pushing to improve everything we do from Thursday to Sunday: the difference between finishing just behind the top teams and outside of the top ten will be very small. Hopefully we can do our homework, have a good weekend and we get to be in that first group: we know what is in our control and what isn't, so we just have to make sure we perform as we know we can."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "What we saw in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) gave us a big confidence boost and we are looking forward to seeing how competitive we can be in Imola. We know we can be in the fight, but we also know we need to deliver a flawless weekend to maximise our returns: the margins are very small in the midfield, especially in qualifying, and every little detail makes a difference. I would love to open my scoring tally in Imola, on home soil: having three home races last season didn't spoil me, it's always a special feeling to race at home and this weekend will be no different."

Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "Apart from the collision with Daniel, the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) weekend went well, with a lot of positives to take from it. In all the free practice sessions we were front runners and a top five in Qualifying was one of our best ever results. Overall, in terms of performance and speed, it is very encouraging for the rest of the season, starting with Imola this weekend. From what we saw in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), it seems we have a package that will allow us to fight for the big points and there is no reason for that not to be the case for the coming races.

"One example of the team's confidence was the decision to tackle Q2 at Sakhir on the Medium tyre as apart from us, there was only the two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) who did it. It was a risk, but it proves our belief in our car and our performance level. Now I hope we will be able to do that again at other circuits.


"With all the restrictions still in place and the need to be very careful, I have not done much since the last round. I spent a couple of days in the simulator and over the Easter weekend, while obeying all the rules, I spent a bit of time with my family.


"Now we head to Imola, which is one of my favourite circuits. I love it. It is technical with a lot of fast corners which allows you to get into a rhythm and you are always busy as it is quite twisty. Last year at this track I got my best ever Qualifying with the team, on the second row. Unfortunately, that race ended early with a problem while I was lying fifth, but it was a very good weekend up until then, so now I'm keen to get back there and make up for last year's disappointment.


"The team has worked hard since the first race, as there are still areas where we can improve, even if we are clearly on the pace at the moment. But this early in the season, we can expect everyone to make progress as they get to understand their cars better and how to optimise them. So, we have to work hard to keep moving forward. Honestly, I can't wait to go racing again as this three-week break has seemed quite long. From now on, the races come one after the other and I'm keen to see what results we can get.


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I very much enjoyed my first experience of a Formula 1 race weekend in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) and now I'm looking forward to the second one in Imola. There was not so much that surprised me about Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), except the large amount of media work I had to do. I was not expecting that! Of course, the race and Qualifying was new, but nothing was too surprising.


"In our Qualifying in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), I have no regrets about our strategy, because being committed to trying to get through to Q3 on the Medium tyre was a good experience and for the team it was a new challenge to try and use that tyre. I learned a lot from that, even if I had expected I could have been higher up the grid with the potential to be top five or top six.


"I was always focussed and didn't feel tense or under pressure or feel I didn't have enough time. It probably helped that we had our pre-season test at the same track. I think when we come to tracks that are new to me, like Portimao and Monaco, that will be tougher than Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir).


"It won't be a problem in Imola, as I have driven there a lot and so I can work in a similar way to what I did in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). I will use the experience from the first race and I already have confidence in the car in Imola. The circuit has a lot of medium speed corners, as well as a few quick ones. I like the fast chicanes like turns one and two, which is something I don't think I've ever experienced before. It really is a special feature of Imola. The track also goes up and down quite a lot and I really like it. I think this is why so many drivers enjoy driving there, because it is different to other tracks. I also enjoy the Acque Minerali section at turns 11 and 12 where the track goes downhill and right-right. In fact, I like all the corners, but those especially.


"I will start the weekend gradually building up my pace. That will be the key, because you don't want to make a mistake in FP1 which will make you lose your confidence. Because we have driven there before the season, as a team we can just focus on car set-up and try and maximise that advantage and hopefully we can have a good result. It's important as it is a home race for the team and even for me, it feels like home.


"It was interesting that after Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), I think I got a bigger reaction from European fans than from those in Japan. It's a cultural thing: Japanese fans want to see what I do in a few rounds before getting a proper impression. I was surprised at that reaction in Europe. I didn't expect it, because for me, Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) was not a perfect weekend and I was hoping to finish higher. I am happy about the fans' support, but I don't feel pressure because of it, I take it as something positive and this weekend I will just get on and do my job."

Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - Haas

Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team is heading to Italy, and to the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), for round two of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.The circuit, more commonly referred to as Imola in deference to the adjoining town, reappeared on the pandemic-hit schedule in 2020 following a 14-year hiatus. Its comeback was well-received by Formula 1's stakeholders, teams and drivers alike, and while its retention initially appeared a longshot, organizers ultimately secured a spot on the 2021 calendar.

Following last year's presence on a fall date Imola this season returns to its more traditional spring berth, having featured in that slot from 1981 through 2006, when it was known as the San Marino Grand Prix. Now named after the Emilia Romagna region in which Imola is located, it will be the fourth round held in Italy across just an eight-month span, following last year's events at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), Mugello and Imola.

The 4.9km circuit provides a number of challenges for teams and drivers. The presence of several low and medium-speed complexes, with high kerbs, places an emphasis on stability and traction while the lengthy full-throttle run from Rivazza to Tamburello means achieving a high top-end speed is also of importance. The narrow nature of the old-school circuit, and infrequent heavy braking zones, also puts the spotlight on qualifying and race strategy, with track position favored owing to the difficulty of drivers being able to pass.

For rookies Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) and Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher), it will be their first experience of Imola behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car - though they have both previously raced at the venue. Mazepin competed in the European Formula 3 Championship in 2016 while Schumacher was victorious at Imola in the Italian Formula 4 category, also in 2016.

Mazepin and Schumacher are seeking to build on the experience gathered through the course of their debut Formula 1 race weekends in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) and put some of the early lessons into practice at the historic circuit.

One race down - 22 to go. What was your take on the team's performance at the season-opening Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix and specifically how Nikita and Mick worked through their race weekend debut?

Guenther Steiner: "Well, the performance of the team and the car - we know what that will be. So, the expectations were not high, at least results-wise. I think the two drivers did a good job over the course of the weekend. Obviously, in the race Nikita spun out and damaged the car, and Mick spun once too - but the whole weekend for them was a learning phase. We need to do more of it, and as many laps as possible, with all that we'll be fine. It was one weekend from 23. We need to get better and better, work on getting more laps in, and keep learning - that's the mission."

Do you think people underestimate how big a challenge it is for a team to start afresh with a brand-new driver line-up? What are the specifics of your role in ensuring the drivers feel comfortable within the team? How hands on are you in that management process?

GS: "It is quite a big challenge. Formula 1 is a very difficult sport, but we knew the challenge, therefore there's no big surprise. We decided to do this, and we need to get through it. I just try to see it that the drivers feel comfortable - I don't try to micromanage them. They have their engineers and they need to work with them on a day-to-day basis, or more accurately on an hour-to-hour basis, not with me. For sure though, in the beginning, I will be well-informed what is happening and try to see where I may need to intervene. I'm not doing the job myself; I've got good people working for the team which know how to do the job better than me. I just observe what is happening. If there's a problem I'm there to ask what it is and then I see if I need to do something."

Reflecting on what you witnessed on-track in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) through testing and subsequently into the race weekend - is there anything that stands out for you in terms of the competition or has the grid taken shape as you expected it to?
GS: "A very short answer. The grid looked exactly as I expected it to after testing. I think we'll see a fight between Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) and Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) for wins this season."

Looking ahead to Imola - on the last visit the team had no historical point of reference at the circuit given Formula 1 hadn't raced there previously in the brief history of Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team. A little over five months later and we're returning to the circuit. Is having that recent track knowledge more useful as a benchmark to evaluate the drivers on their learning curve or from an engineering perspective in terms of car set-up - or is it both?

GS: "It's mainly useful in the car set-up. Even if the cars haven't changed a lot, they have still changed with the aero regulations, so there is a difference. It's always good to have been at a race track. Everything you know, and what you've learned, it's all useful. The more you've been the better it is. For sure it will help the team and our rookie drivers."

Having had time to digest and reflect on your debut Formula 1 weekend in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) - what specifically stands out as a key learning you can take from that event and apply moving forward?

Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "I feel like the biggest thing to get used to is learning the schedule, and the weekend is much more intense with all that's going on and the sessions on-track. It's about keeping concentration and learning the schedule - that's the biggest thing."

With the intensity of pre-season testing followed almost immediately by the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix, there's now been a longer than usual two-week break between races. How have you used this time both professionally and personally to recharge ahead of Imola?

NM: "For me personally it was very important to use these two weeks to go away and reflect back on the weekend to see the things I need to improve - and obviously there's a lot of things being a rookie. Also, it was very nice to go back home and see my family. Knowing there's a very busy schedule ahead during the year, these two weeks were very important."

What are your memories of racing at Imola in your junior career?

NM: "I raced at Imola back in Formula 3 in 2016. It's a very old school circuit and it was very special to race there with the memories of Ayrton Senna. Going into Formula 1 there's obviously going to be a lot of changes but I'm looking forward to being out there again."

What preparations have your undertaken before racing at Imola for the first time in a Formula 1 car?

NM: "Some simulator driving has been very important as I haven't raced at the circuit in five years. It's a circuit where the qualifying lap is very important because there are very little overtaking opportunities. So, getting that one push - that good qualifying lap, it's key. Being on it from the first minute, that's the key factor for the race weekend."

Having had time to digest and reflect on your debut Formula 1 weekend in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) - what specifically stands out as a key learning you can take from that event and apply moving forward?

Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "I think in general I've learned a ton of new things, and we've seen that come through in all the meetings we've had. It's always different talking about it and feeling it. There are a lot of things I learned about the tires, that's probably the biggest new thing to me. Also, on things like how much downforce we lose at the start of the race. It's like going from 100 percent downforce to 20 percent downforce the moment you're turning into a corner. There was definitely lots learned and lots to look at before heading to Imola. I feel I have a lot more knowledge, a lot more comfort, but I was also really surprised at how quickly the weekend was over. It all happened in the blink of an eye - it was a case of little time and lots to learn, let's put it like that."

With the intensity of pre-season testing followed almost immediately by the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix, there's now been a longer than usual two-week break between races. How have you used this time both professionally and personally to recharge ahead of Imola?

MS: "We had a few team meetings after the weekend as usual, obviously to put a point on what we learned, trying to put it all together ahead of Imola. I've been preparing myself physically, while doing a bit of recovery too. I've really just been focused 100 percent on going to Imola."

What are your memories of racing at Imola in your junior career?

MS: "I only have good memories there to be honest. I've raced at Imola in F4 and done a few tests in F3. Honestly, all of the experiences I've had there are great. We had a track walk there once and saw five peacocks, which was a new one for me. The track is amazing to drive. Racing-wise it can be quite difficult, with very few places to overtake. Once you're in a flow and set a nice lap it's amazing, especially how one corner follows after another. There are quick corners, technical corners, the kerbs that you have to ride. There's definitely lots to look forward to in a Formula 1 car."

Describe the specific characteristics of the Imola circuit and what you need from a car to push there. What preparations have your undertaken before racing there for the first time in a Formula 1 car?

MS: "Obviously, Imola is known for a lot of kerb riding. You have the two corners up in the chicane where you have to take a lot of kerb. We have some long corners which follow into long straights. Everything's basically very twisted. In all the junior categories that I've raced there, it was always very fun, and a track I enjoyed driving. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a lot better in a Formula 1 car. It's amazing to drive a Formula 1 car, so to do that on a super cool track will be even more special. I'm definitely looking forward to it. Regarding preparation, I've been speaking through it all with the team and going through the notes I made there when I was young."

Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - Red BullRed Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) drivers, Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) and Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) look ahead to this weekend's Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

The Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix was an eventful race weekend. How do you look back on it?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): It really was eventful, I thought the race was over before we even started, but we were lucky to get the car going. It's always important to maximise the 'bad days' and get the most out of them and in the end it was a very positive race recovery with some good points scored for the Team. I think it was also very important to drive those kilometres and complete the race distance in order to get up to speed quickly with the car, the Team and all of the processes.


What was going through your head on the formation lap when the car stopped on track?

SP: I had no clue what was going on but I stayed calm. Everything just shut down, the radio, the telemetry, everything was fully off and for a moment I couldn't do anything. I was about to get out of the car and then that second, we managed to turn the car back on. In the end I think we were very lucky I stayed in the car and we managed to get going again, even though we had to start the race from the pit lane.


Our car qualified on pole, but we lost out to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) in the race. Just how close is the fight with them?

SP: I think it's going to be very tight with Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and we're going to see if the fight is circuit related. It will be interesting to see how we are in Imola, on a very different track to Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), and see how we compare against them.

What did you learn about the Team, about Max, about the car over the course of the race weekend?

SP: I learned a lot. I learned more about Max's driving style and how the car has to be driven to extract the maximum from it. I think that was the biggest learning, I know what balance I need from the car throughout the weekend.


What are your expectations heading to Imola and what will be important in ensuring we have a good weekend?

SP: My goal is to have a good race and I'm looking forward to the weekend. Hopefully in Imola we can come back and be in contention to fight for a podium and hopefully the win. Unlike Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), qualifying is very important at Imola as you can hardly overtake there but I like it.


There is a long season ahead but was it satisfying to take the first pole of the season?

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): Of course, the race in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) was a great start to the season, it was a positive weekend in terms of performance but there are no guarantees heading into Imola. We had a positive start to the season so hopefully we can keep that up but it won't be easy and we need everything to work perfectly to beat our main competition.


The Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) GP was an eventful race weekend. How do you look back on it now?

MV: Of course there are always things we can do better, but that's always easy to say after a race weekend. As a Team we always look to improve but that's a constant thing we are working on, we always want to be thinking ahead. Even if we had won the race in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), there are always areas to improve, especially when you are fighting a seven-time world championship winning team, so that's what we will continue to do in Imola. I'm up for the battle and it's still a very long season.


How is the RB16B handling and is it more enjoyable to drive than RB16?

MV: I don't think you can compare both cars because there are a lot of different factors such as the tyres and the aero changes but the RB16B definitely handles well so far. We've also only been to one track so every single weekend you have to try and find a good balance in the car again but everyone enjoys that challenge of Formula One.


How excited are you going into Imola and what can we expect on this track?

MV: I'm feeling really relaxed going into this race weekend in Imola, I'm looking forward to going back there. Last year we had quite a good race until the tyre issue. Again, it's too close to the start of the season to know how we will perform, we'll have to wait and see what happens on track. The desire comes from within and I am motivated to try and win every single race. So let's see if we can go one better.

Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - AlpineThe team is feeling determined for a strong performance at the historic Imola circuit this weekend. And with upgrades planned for the A521, Executive Director Marcin Budkowski outlines the team's ambitions for the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix and beyond.

What is the verdict after Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir)?

Marcin Budkowski: We left Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) feeling disappointed by not scoring points. The Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) race weekend confirmed some of the weaknesses of our package, which we're working hard to improve and gain the few tenths of a second that we are currently missing to fight at the front of the midfield.


Both Esteban and Fernando did a good job over the race weekend, but suffered from adverse circumstances - Esteban in qualifying, Fernando in the race - so we're aiming for a clean weekend to allow them to show their true potential.

The A521 is tackling a new circuit. How does the team approach Imola?

MB: It will be interesting to see how our car performs on a different circuit, having only been to Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) for testing and the first race so far this season. It will also generate new data to help our development effort. As a team, we have happy memories from our podium here last season so it's good to go back!


How is the team planning to develop the A521?

MB: We have an aerodynamic upgrade package coming to the car for this Grand Prix. In addition, we have some test items to assess during Friday practice, which will help define further upgrades planned over the next few races.


What is required to do well in Imola?

MB: Imola really is a legendary circuit for car racing and, in particular, for Formula 1. It's a fast circuit with high power sensitivity and quick changes of direction, so the driver needs to have confidence in the car to attack the fast and flowing corner combinations.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) heads to Imola after missing out on points in the season opener. The Frenchman is determined to return to the top 10 in this weekend's Emilia Romagna Grand Prix as he looks to avenge last year's result at the legendary Imola.


What were the main takeaways from the first race?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): It wasn't the start to the season we hoped for, but there's positives to take, areas we know we can do better, and we go to Imola targeting an improved result. In Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), starting in sixteenth just meant we had to catch up in the race. We know it was a bit of bad luck there but qualifying higher up on the grid will enable us to be in a better position to fight for points. I have a bit of unfinished business in Imola too after last year's retirement. I want to go there and score points and I'm feeling very determined to do that.


How ready are you to take on Imola?

EO: Imola is a classic racetrack. Returning there last season was nice as it feels so historic and old school with its deep racing roots. It's a circuit I enjoy racing at. I won the 2014 European Formula 3 Championship there with a win and a podium, which was very special. Italy is also close to me having lived there for many years and I always look forward to racing there whether it's in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), Mugello or Imola!


Where are the main challenges on a lap?

EO: Last year, it was a lot of fun driving a modern Formula 1 car around Imola. The corner combinations there are so fast. Sector 1 is incredibly quick with little room for error. You need confidence in the car to attack the quick changes of direction. In Sector 2 there's Acque Minerale, the famous, downhill up and down right. The angles and kerbs make it a great challenge and I can't wait to attack the circuit right from the first session on Friday.


Following his eagerly anticipated return to Formula 1 in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) two weeks ago, Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) now heads back to a circuit he knows well having won there in 2005 en-route to his first world drivers' championship.

How was it qualifying and racing again in Formula 1?

Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): It was really enjoyable. I have missed the feeling and adrenaline that comes with qualifying in Formula 1, it's like no other competition. We were very pleased to make it into Q3 on Saturday and I felt comfortable to push quite hard. The result in the race was obviously not as we expected, but we were very unlucky to retire the way we did and, of course, Esteban was unfortunate to start where he did. In saying all of this, we had some fun battles on the track, and I look forward to some more this weekend.


Imola is a place you know well, are you looking forward to racing there again this weekend?

FA: I do like the Imola racetrack and I was glad to see it return to Formula 1 last year. It threw up an exciting race in 2020 and I think some of the changes to the circuit since I raced here over ten years ago has improved the racing. It's also different to be in Europe so early in the season, we usually arrive a little later in the year when the continent is going through its summertime. I have some good memories here particularly in 2005 when we won the race and later took the championship that year.


What are your targets for this weekend?

FA: I think we have to fight to score our first points of the season on Sunday. Let's hope all our bad luck for the season was used up in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir)! We're still learning lots about the car and I'm expecting that the setup here and, of course, the weather will be very different to what we experienced in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). It should be pretty close and a few tenths of a second could make up a number of positions.

Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - PirelliOnce more, the three middle compounds in Pirelli's Formula 1 range - C2 as the P Zero White hard, C3 as P Zero Yellow medium, and C4 as P Zero Red soft - have been selected for round two at Imola in Italy: the same choice as for the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) season-opener, which showcased a number of different strategies.

This was also the same choice as the last race to be held at Imola nearly six months ago, although the tyre structure has changed for this year to offer greater durability and allow the use of lower pressures for more resistance to overheating.

Imola 2020 was also run with just one 90-minute practice session; this year there are three free practice sessions of one hour each.


The C2, C3 and C4 tyres have been chosen for their wide array of capabilities: well-matched to the varying characteristics of the Imola circuit and the ample range of possible weather conditions in spring, with the European season now getting underway much earlier than in recent years.


Track Characteristics

Imola is an old-school circuit that provides a big technical challenge with a mixed selection of different corners and speeds that test all aspects of a car's performance. With just one F1 race held there since 2006, back in the temperate conditions of late autumn last year, teams do not have a huge amount of relevant data to fall back on.


The track is quite narrow in places, which adds to the challenge of overtaking and puts an emphasis on strategy. Last year's strategy was influenced by a safety car late in the race (as well as an earlier virtual safety car) with Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) winning using all three compounds, having started on the medium. Without the safety car, a one-stop strategy would probably have been selected by the majority of drivers: also because the pit lane time loss is quite big at Imola, at roughly 25 seconds.


Although it was re-asphalted prior to last year's grand prix, Imola - an anti-clockwise circuit - is still quite bumpy and there are some big kerbs, placing notable demands on the cars and drivers.


There are no support races planned for the Imola weekend apart from Formula Regional by Alpine, which represents the first step on the ladder to international single-seater racing, just below Formula 3. This will affect track evolution for F1, with not a lot of rubber being laid on the surface. Formula Regional is supplied exclusively by Pirelli, with two sets of slick and wet tyres available in a single specification and two races per weekend. Imola is the debut round for this all-new series.


Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) will remain at Imola to test the 2022 18-inch prototype slick tyres on the Tuesday and Wednesday after the race: the fourth development test of the year after two slick sessions at Jerez and Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) plus one wet session at Jerez.

Mario Isola: "After an exciting start in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), we have exactly the same tyre nomination for Imola: a circuit with very different characteristics, which we are excited to be visiting as title sponsors, helping to demonstrate the prestige of 'Made in Italy' to the world.


"Although the last race at Imola took place nearly six months ago, conditions could possibly be different now in April compared to November, and of course the tyre construction has changed.


"As was the case for the last race here, we expect teams to go with a one-stop strategy, also because of the time lost in the pits and relative difficulty in overtaking. The safety car made a big difference last year, so there are a lot of question marks heading into this weekend's return to Europe."

La "previa" de N. Carpentiers:

Les trois enjeux du Grand Prix F1 d’Émilie-Romagne

Après les essais hivernaux et le premier Grand Prix disputés à Bahreïn, la Formule 1 change enfin de circuit. Le tracé d’Imola conviendra-t-il mieux à la Mercedes, ou faut-il s’attendre à un cavalier seul de Red Bull ? Que peut y espérer Pierre Gasly, qui avait signé là-bas sa meilleure qualification l’an dernier ? Et qu’attendre des évolutions qu’apportera Alpine sur un circuit où l’équipe était montée sur le podium il y a un an ?

VERSTAPPEN-HAMILTON, ROUND 2

Après l’intense confrontation entre Max Verstappen et Lewis Hamilton à Bahreïn, le Grand Prix d’Émilie-Romagne marquera le deuxième épisode d’un duel qui pourrait bien durer toute la saison (c’est du moins ce que l’on espère). En course, l’an passé, le pilote hollandais s’était montré très compétitif, voire menaçant pour les Flèches d’argent, avant que l’explosion de son pneu arrière-droit ne ruine ses efforts au 51e tour.

Cette année, le rapport de forces est inversé. Red Bull arrive avec la meilleure voiture du plateau, en tout cas si l’on se fie à ce que l’on a vu à Sakhir. Cette deuxième confrontation devrait permettre de préciser l’écart entre les deux adversaires, puisque les F1 2021 n’ont tourné, jusqu’à présent, que sur un seul tracé… Dans les dunes de Bahreïn, les ingénieurs de Mercedes avaient un peu déchargé le train avant, afin de rééquilibrer la voiture et d’éviter les glissades du train arrière, mais avec le corollaire indésirable de générer du sous-virage en milieu de courbe. Un correctif en partie efficace mais insuffisant, puisque la W12 d’Hamilton rendait près de quatre dixièmes à la RB16B de Verstappen.

Ce déficit est en partie lié à la nature du circuit bahreïni. Intrinsèquement, les voitures à faible “rake” souffrent davantage dans les enchaînements de virages qui présentent un grand différentiel de vitesse (la notion de “rake” en F1 est expliquée ici (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/2/)). Lors de la première course, les Mercedes perdaient beaucoup de temps dans les enchaînements 5-6 et 9-10, deux séquences où un virage rapide est suivi d’un virage plus lent. Il semble que, dans les virages lents, le centre de pression aérodynamique ne déplace pas en avant aussi bien que sur les châssis à faible rake, comme la Red Bull.

A priori, le tracé d’Imola ne présente pas ce genre d’enchaînements, mais plutôt des courbes rapides. A priori une bonne nouvelle pour Mercedes… sauf que l’écurie estime que sa machine manque aussi de vitesse dans les virages rapides, dont Imola est truffé. Si on ajoute à la supériorité châssis de Red Bull la puissance du V6 Honda et la probable meilleure fortune de Pérez (qui avait raté la Q3 à Sakhir), il est probable que les Gris se fassent quelques cheveux blancs ce week-end.

ALPHATAURI ET GASLY, TROISIÈME FORCE ? L’an passé, Pierre Gasly s’était qualifié en deuxième ligne en Émilie-Romagne, fief d’AlphaTauri, dont l’usine est située à une quinzaine de kilomètres du circuit. Si le Français avait dû jeter l’éponge à cause d’une panne mécanique, Daniil Kvyat s’était hissé à la quatrième place finale et menaçait Daniel Ricciardo pour le podium.


L’AT02 semble encore plus performante que sa devancière, même si l’écurie n’a ramené que deux points du désert. Avant de ruiner sa course en touchant l’arrière de la McLaren de Ricciardo, le Français s’était qualifié au cinquième rang, à seulement 0”131 de la Ferrari de Charles Leclerc et devant les deux McLaren.


En course, les bolides orange étaient un brin plus rapide que les Ferrari et les AlphaTauri – du moins celle de Yuki Tsunoda, qui est parvenu à marquer des points pour son premier Grands Prix.


Le Japonais a montré une solide pointe de vitesse et une belle capacité à dépasser. Cet hiver, il a beaucoup roulé sur le tracé romagnol, ce qui devrait faciliter sa deuxième course en Formule 1. Comme ses rivales, AlphaTauri apportera des évolutions aérodynamiques.


De quoi en faire la voiture italienne la plus rapide de ce week-end ? La bataille pour la troisième place s’annonce encore une fois très disputée.


ALPINE MOINS BIEN QUE RENAULT ? À Imola, l’an passé, Daniel Ricciardo était monté sur le podium. Cette troisième place était un tantinet chanceuse, l’Australien ayant profité d’une grosse erreur stratégique de Racing Point (qui avait fait rentrer Sergio Pérez aux stands pendant la neutralisation).


Au soir de cette épreuve, Renault occupait le troisième rang au classement provisoire des constructeurs, avec un point d’avance sur McLaren et Racing Point. Aujourd’hui, Alpine se classe à la huitième place, juste devant Williams et Haas.


Quand on compare la performance des voitures à Sakhir avec la compétitivité moyenne affichée sur la saison 2020, on note que Mercedes, Aston Martin et Haas sont les seules formations à avoir perdu du terrain, pour des raisons expliquées ailleurs (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-galerie-grand-prix-de-bahrein-2/2/). Au rayon des progressions, Alpine est l’écurie qui affiche la plus faible amélioration (– 0,0392 %), derrière Alfa Romeo (– 0,9523 %), Red Bull (– 0,7292 %), AlphaTauri (– 0,7183 %), Ferrari (– 0,6638 %), McLaren (– 0,3071 %) et Williams (– 0,1223 %).


Pour corriger le tir, l’écurie tricolore a prévu d’introduire des évolutions ce week-end dans l’espoir de gagner “les quelques dixièmes qui manquent actuellement à l’équipe pour se battre à l’avant du peloton” selon Marcin Budkowski. Fort bien, mais toutes les écuries se présenteront à Imola avec des nouveautés.

FORMULA 1 PIRELLI GRAN PREMIO DEL MADE IN ITALY E DELL'EMILIA ROMAGNA 2021 - Autodromo di Imola
Resultados FP1
Viernes, 16 de abril de 2021


Los tres primeros de esta primera sesión en Imola la ocupan los tres de siempre del año pasado con Valtteri BOTTAS en primera posición seguido por HAMILTON y VERSTAPPEN, separados por solo 58 milésimas.

La tercera posición ha sido para GASLY, a 3 décimas. Carlos SAINZ ha marcado el mismo tiempo. LECLERC ha terminado tras ellos a 24 milésimas.

Fernando ALONSO ha terminado 7º pero ya a casi 9 décimas del tiempo de Bottas.

CHECO y OCON tuvieron un toque que acabó con los dos fuera de la sesión. Checo iba en vuelta rápida y Ocon en desaceleración. La realización no mostró el toque y la acción fue revisada por los comisarios, que consideraron que no había sanción para ninguno de los dos.

MAZEPIN terminó la sesión yéndose contra las protecciones.

La baja temperatura de la pista complicó la utilización del neumático más duro.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la primera jornada de prácticas:

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team ran a productive Friday practice programme today on the opening day of the Pirelli Emilia Romagna Grand Prix weekend at Imola.

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) and Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) were in the mix of the top 10 on the timesheets throughout the red-flag interrupted day.


Esteban was involved in an incident, which brought out the first red flag in FP1 after a coming together with Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing's Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez). After a brief trip to the stewards, no further action was taken between the former team-mates. Fernando ended the session in seventh.


Both drivers ran new aerodynamic parts on the A521 to compare and evaluate the planned upgrades to the package.
In FP2, Esteban's 1min 16.817secs on Softs (C4) put him eleventh 0.080secs off the top 10 with Fernando 0.018secs behind the Frenchman in thirteenth. After a series of short runs both drivers focused on high fuel to round off the day.

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "We've made a positive start to the weekend even with this morning's incident. Fortunately for Sergio [Perez] and I, we didn't lose too much track time, which is important with the one-hour sessions. The incident was unfortunate, but we were able to put it behind us and move on to the afternoon. The mechanics did a great job in turning the car around on time, so thanks to them for their quick and solid work. I think we have a solid base to work from. There are still some things to tweak with the balance, but the car behaves quite well here and I'm looking forward to pushing on over the next two days."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was a good Friday and we completed our programme today with no issues. Apart from the red flags and other incidents that stopped the two sessions, I was happy with the test items we put on the car and I felt an improvement in the performance. Let's see where we are tomorrow and hopefully there is a little more still to come. As we suspected it's going to be very close again so qualifying should be interesting. It was great to drive again in Imola and feel the car in these high grip conditions."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "We did a good job today in Friday practice. This morning we had the small accident with Esteban. It wasn't a big issue and there were no major concerns, meaning we could continue with our work for the second session. In the afternoon, we did some short runs and then long runs with different tyres on both cars and showed good pace. Both drivers are quite happy after today. Of course, we know qualifying will be important here. It's a track where overtaking is difficult, so we have to put a lot of effort into tomorrow and aim to put both cars in a good starting position for the race."

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - MercedesValtteri topped the timings charts in both the morning and afternoon sessions, with Lewis close behind in P2. The team used today's sessions to explore set-up changes and better understand the balance characteristics of the W12.
Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): The car is feeling much better than on the first day in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). As I said yesterday, it is a different track and type of circuit with different grip levels and surface. The weekend has started in a positive way, I'm much happier with the balance of the car.


The car feels better, we still have the same type of issues as in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) but less so. Still not perfect but we are only on event two out of 23 this season so hopefully we have time to fix it. I feel like we've made steps forward so that's really good. The whole grid from midfield to the front looks very close. We didn't see the best from Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) today but we'll see that in Q3 tomorrow. No doubt they are going to be fast. We still don't think we are the fastest car and we really need to improve on that on Saturday.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): The team worked very hard to understand what happened in the last race where we were weak and to see if we can try to tweak the car for a better set-up. I also think the track has come a little bit more in our direction. We started off with a really good set-up today, a few tweaks here and there but no major issues. So far, good pace from us this weekend.


We haven't seen the best from the Red Bulls yet. It looks like they had messy sessions with traffic but it will be interesting to see just how quick they are tomorrow. Positioning is important here - it's hard to follow around this track so nailing the set-up and maximising tomorrow is going to be so important.

Andrew Shovlin: We brought a few aerodynamic updates here and our early work today confirmed that they were performing correctly. The car has also had a reasonable balance from the start which has made working through the programme relatively easy. Generating tyre temperature isn't especially easy here - the air and track are cold - but at least we're not suffering from poor rear grip like we were in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir).


The traffic has been a bit of a challenge, both drivers struggled to find clear track at times but today is about understanding the car rather than setting quick laps and I think we have done some good work in that regard. We've still not managed to get the grip out of the soft tyre on lap one so that's something we need to work on overnight. We also can't say where we stand in terms of pace as we've not seen Verstappen on a single lap or long run but both drivers are reasonably happy with how the car is working and the issues we need to solve are all within the realms of normal setup tuning.

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - Red Bull

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It was definitely good to get a decent amount of laps in the second session today and to get a feel for the car on a different track. The track conditions are obviously very different here compared to Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) so I'm just learning how the car behaves on different tracks. We've learnt a lot today as a Team and for every lap I do, I learn a few tricks here and there. The race pace seems to be strong and the car felt good, hopefully we can pull it all together in qualifying tomorrow. With the incident this morning, we didn't have radio so I think there was a miscommunication through there and I think it was just bad timing."

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "I like Italy. The food is good and I enjoy being here but we don't seem to have been that lucky with the driving here recently, so hopefully that will change. I had a driveshaft issue so we had to stop the car in FP2 and it wasn't the easiest to get the car back to the pits so I couldn't get back out on track. The car felt alright in FP1 and it is difficult to say how the second session would have been but we will still be able to look at the data and see what we can do better for tomorrow in terms of balance. Of course it would have been better to have the session but I don't think missing running in FP2 is the end of the world as we know what we need to do tomorrow. We just have to focus on ourselves and make sure we get the best out of our package."

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Tricky day, just because it was quite messy - not from our side necessarily, but because of the yellow flags, red flags and things like that. There were also a few problems with radio and things which again weren't our fault, but made it a hectic session. Many things to work on going into tomorrow. I wouldn't say we're as confident as we were a couple of weeks ago, but I think we can make some good improvements going into tomorrow to make the car a bit nicer to drive, a bit more comfortable and give myself a bit more confidence as well. I don't think we're in a bad position, but we definitely have some work to do."

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "It's really cool to be back on this track. It's pretty awesome. The day itself was a bit difficult. We've definitely got a few things to work on overnight to get some more out of the car. It was a challenging day, but we've got a session in the morning tomorrow to figure it out ahead of quali. We'll try to address the issues today and put ourselves in a good place for tomorrow."


Andrea Stella, Executive Director, Racing: "The new format of shorter sessions on Friday means we need to be very efficient to get through the programme and do all of the laps in the plan. Today we almost achieved that, but missed out because of red flags, yellow flags and VSC interruptions. There were also problems with radio and video comms that affected the entire paddock.


"Despite these issues, it was a productive day. It's pretty clear that there are some areas in which we have to improve before qualifying. The midfield pack seems to be very tight, and it will be interesting to see how the competitive position evolves. As usual, we've got to be at our best to do well in qualifying and put ourselves in a good position to score good points on Sunday."

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - Aston Martin

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It is great to be back in Imola because it is such an awesome circuit. It is really satisfying to drive, especially the way you can attack the circuit and use the kerbs. It reminds me of my karting days. I would call it an old school circuit; it punishes errors, and I think that's why the drivers enjoy it so much. It is quite different from the open layout of Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) and the car naturally feels different as a result, but I felt good today and we completed some important work. We now have plenty of information to analyse this evening, but it has been a promising start to the weekend."

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "Part of today's programme involved testing some new aero parts and the early signs are encouraging - especially in terms of my feeling in the car. That should help us take a step forward this weekend. I believe we can be more competitive than in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). We learned a huge amount from the first race and the work over the last few weeks - in the factory and here at the track - has certainly helped us make some improvements ahead of this weekend. I think the data we have from today's sessions will help us take some more steps forward ahead of qualifying."

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - FerrariScuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow had a busy Friday at the Enzo e Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) circuit, home to the Made in Italy e dell'Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix. It was clear that both Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) seemed to be at ease on the Italian track and the SF21 appeared well suited to it too, even if the real pecking order will only emerge tomorrow.In the first free practice session in the morning, Charles was fourth fastest and Carlos was sixth. Between them, they completed 39 laps of the Enzo e Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) circuit, 26 for the Spaniard and 13 for the Monegasque, the latter having to spend a few additional minutes in the garage while checks were carried out on his car. Towards the end, both SF21s went out on Soft tyres to set their fastest times: 1:16.796 for Charles and 1:16.888 for Carlos.


In the second hour, both drivers started the session on the Medium tyre before switching to the Softs for the qualifying simulation. It was in this configuration that they set their quickest times, the Spaniard stopping the clocks in 1:15.834, while the Monegasque posted a 1:16.371. Earlier, Leclerc had done a 1:15.367, which would have been the fastest time overall but the time was disallowed as he had exceeded track limits by just a few centimetres at the Piratella corner. Towards the end of the session, as usual, both men ran in race trim. Carlos completed a total of 30 laps, while with just two minutes of the session remaining and having completed 28 laps, Charles went off into the barriers at Rivazza 2, damaging the front right suspension on his SF21.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): It was an important day for me as I was looking forward to driving the car for the first time somewhere other than Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). The different corners, tarmac, temperatures, etc. made it an interesting day for sure. It seems we could be a bit more competitive this weekend and, in general, the feeling with the car was positive as the conditions suits us better.


You can feel some more grip and I am enjoying it out there, building up the confidence lap by lap trying to find the limit around the entire track. I'm not quite there yet, but today was a good start to the weekend and we still have FP3 to fine tune everything ahead of Qualifying tomorrow.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): This was definitely a good day, despite the time lost in the first session and the incident just at the end of the second one. The car is quick, the balance is good and I felt at ease immediately. Of course, it's only tomorrow that we will find out the pecking order, because maybe someone hasn't shown their full potential.

This afternoon, I made a mistake while pushing flat out in race trim. I'm sorry for the guys but at least there were only two minutes to go. I was pleased with my quick lap: the time that was cancelled because of a couple of centimetres would have been quickest overall and even over a long run I think we have found a good balance. The track is really great and I can't wait to get back in the car tomorrow for qualifying, when I think a good result can be within our grasp.

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I think this has been one of our best Fridays as a team, P4 this morning and P3 this afternoon, and I was so close to the top guys. I've felt good in the car since the first lap and I managed to push pretty hard, as well as drive the way I wanted, so I think it's been a successful day. We focused on short runs initially with the Softs, which looked strong pace wise and then completed some high-fuel laps in preparation for the race on Sunday. We've continued to work hard to improve against our main rivals in the midfield and I think, so far, we've shown that the pace is good. We'll analyse the data that we've collected again tonight and hopefully we can find a little bit more again in Qualifying tomorrow."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I didn't manage to complete many laps during FP1, due to an issue, and only managed four push laps in total but the car felt good whilst I was out. The team fixed the issue during the break and I was able to build-up my pace in FP2 as I continued to push more - hopefully I'll be able to improve again in tomorrow's practice session ahead of Qualifying. I've completed a lot of laps here pre-season, but I think I still managed to gain a lot from the sessions today. I particularly learnt about tyre management around this circuit and have a lot of interesting data from the Softs that I can now go and analyse."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "It's great to be back here racing at the team's home circuit, it's such an amazing track - I know the drivers love it and we certainly do too from an engineering side. FP1 was a slightly more difficult session than normal due to some of the systems being down - which obviously was the same for everyone - but it shows how reliant we are on these, particularly the timings, GPS and TV feed. It definitely made it more of a challenge for us engineers. During the morning session we completed some aero testing on Yuki's car, as we've brought some new components here this weekend and want to sign these off ahead of the race. Unfortunately, we had a PU issue on Yuki's car so only managed limited running in FP1, which meant he wasn't able to get up to speed quite so quickly. We made some changes to his car ahead of FP2 and everything seems to be back to normal now, which is positive. Pierre completed a standard run plan in FP1; we mostly tried to understand how to operate the tyres in these unusually cold temperatures - concentrating on how to maximise them during the short runs and how to limit the graining during the longer runs. Overall, I think it's looking positive so far this weekend - the performance over the shorter runs is there and we've now got to work with the data tonight to ensure that the pace is there for Qualifying tomorrow."

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - Alfa RomeoFriday practice at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix wasn't a straightforward affair, with the unforgiving nature of the Imola circuit contributing to bringing out red flags that interrupted both the morning and afternoon sessions.

The disruption to the flow of the day, however, didn't appear to faze the Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN team, which had a positive first day of action. Both cars were on track for considerable amounts of time, meaning both sides of the garage finished the day with all boxes ticked off in their respective programmes.


A productive day of work is what the doctor prescribed ahead of tomorrow's qualifying session: with the Autodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) a notoriously difficult place for overtakes, the grid-setting Saturday showdown will be even more important than usual as claiming a good grid position makes Sunday's job all that much easier.


After a good day, hopefully comes a good night: time to crunch the data, then. Some positive indications from today leave us confident in being in a good shape when qualifying comes calling...


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It wasn't a bad day for us, even though the timesheets don't really show it. We couldn't put a lap together in the short runs, so I am not too worried: let's see what we can do tomorrow. There are things we can improve a bit tonight, as always, so hopefully we can get a bit more performance out of the car. The objective is the same - to clear Q1 and fight for a spot as high on the grid as we can."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "We had a good start of the weekend. FP1 was a good session, a bit compromised with the radio and data issue - but that applies to everyone. I was very happy with the car in FP2, both in the short and long runs. We need to adjust a few things to make the car even better for qualifying as we know it will be tight - even more than it was in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). It's hard to say where we expect to be, as a tiny difference between a lap and the other can make a big difference: we need to put together a perfect lap in qualifying."

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - HaasThe second round of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship began with practice on Friday at Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), Imola as teams prepared for Sunday's Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

Two 60-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - on the 4.909-kilometer (3.050-mile), 19-turn circuit made up Friday's track time with the weather conditions in Italy sunny but fresh - air temperature hovering around 11 degrees Celsius (51.8 degrees Fahrenheit) and track temperature at 22 degrees Celsius (71.6 degrees Fahrenheit).


FP1 saw Mazepin and Schumacher run identical tire strategies. Both commenced the session on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium rubber. With wake-up runs banked, Mazepin logging 14 laps to Schumacher on 9, next on the plan was a switch to new sets of the P Zero Red soft rubber. An ill-timed red flag stop, for the stricken cars of Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon), consumed valuable track time leaving Mazepin and Schumacher just one outing on the soft compound. Mazepin set a fastest lap of 1:18.823 - good for 18th overall, before a last lap spin exiting the final turn, and subsequent contact with the barrier, produced a second red flag in the final minute. Schumacher ended his morning outing 19th overall, his best lap of the session a 1:19.480 on his nine-lap run on the soft compound.


Schumacher was first out the garage in FP2 sampling the P Zero White hard tire. He followed that up with a stint on new softs - clocking his quickest lap of the session with a 1:17.350, which would place him 19th on the timesheet. The reigning F2 champion completed his run session with a short high-fuel stint on the medium compound. A precautionary gearbox change on Mazepin's VF-21, following his off in FP1, meant the rookie joined FP2 with 20 minutes off the clock. A brief stint on medium tires was followed by a switch to softs for an eight-lap run. Mazepin's best lap was a 1:17.857 for 20th overall. He ended Friday's track running with a high-fuel outing on the hard tires.


Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team ran a total of 84 laps on Friday across FP1 and FP2 - 38 by Mazepin and 46 by Schumacher.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "I think we had a positive day - I really learned a lot about the car. I think I made another very good step forward with the team in terms of understanding what car I want to drive. I had a good lap time in FP1, it was a good quali simulation, I was happy with it. I then made a mistake which there was no coming back from, but overall, it was a positive FP1 and then FP2. I'm not leaving anything on the table out there. I wouldn't want to go to sleep thinking I've left some time out there. There's a balance of course, which I haven't mastered yet, but we have time. All eyes are on FP3 now - the weekend progresses and I have to keep progressing with it as well."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "It was fun, it felt great out there today. The track didn't change much from 2016, so that was a positive. In terms of feeling and in terms of fun, it was definitely similar to my last visit here back then. The colder conditions today meant we could push a lot more consecutively, which has positives and also negatives. The negative just being it's a cold temperature and it takes ages to warm up the tires. Sometimes even in the long runs its hard to get the temperatures in there and to keep them there is even harder. As a positive it means a lot of laps so I can try a lot of things straight away, especially on the C2 tire. I was really able to find out the limit especially in FP2 and improve with each lap on the C4. The first lap was a warm-up then we went through the run and improved with each lap. For now, we're quite happy but it only really counts in qualifying."


Guenther Steiner: "Not an unsuccessful FP1 and FP2. We had a few small bumps during the sessions but overall, I think our learning process with the drivers continues - we're making steps forward. We're getting faster, it's not consistent faster, but improvements are being made. Obviously, Nikita (Mazepin) had a spin on his last lap, and it was on a pretty quick lap - a very fast lap, but he went off on the last corner. It was not ideal, and we lost some time in FP2 with him as we changed his gearbox just as a precaution and to check it out. When you do that you're out of sync with other cars in FP2 and then your tires get cold and it's a downhill spiral. So, that's why his FP2 wasn't ideal. Mick (Schumacher) overall did a good job to get the most out of his laps during the two hours of running he had today."

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - Williams

Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: It was good to run the FW43B in cooler conditions and at a circuit that is quite different to Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). Although the tyre compounds are the same as we had at the first race, their behaviour is understandably quite different, and we have spent time today understanding how we can optimise their performance in both qualifying and the race. The day has gone well and has been very busy. Both drivers enjoyed trouble-free sessions and were generally happy with their cars. Although we only had two one-hour sessions, we still completed a lot of laps and collected a lot of data. We have some further changes to make overnight, but we are pleased with our start to the weekend and are looking forward to tomorrow.

Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I think it was a very positive day. For the most part we ran without hitches and we were able to get through the run plan quite smoothly. I was expecting the car to feel much better than it did in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), and it was better than expected. We still have some work to do, you don't get anything for having a strong Friday. Tomorrow afternoon is when it counts, but we are setting ourselves up nicely to have a strong Saturday and Sunday.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69430/drivers/66/george-russell): As a team we are looking relatively fast, but personally I am a bit off the pace. Nicholas is driving really well, probably the best I have seen him drive. I need to improve quite a bit to close the gap to our competitors, and to Nicholas. As a team we are in a good position, we have a lot of data to review but I'm sure that my engineers and I can figure it out.

Emilia Romagna GP: Practice team notes - PirelliMercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) was first and second fastest in both free practice sessions today. Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) topped the times on each occasion, setting the quickest time of the day on the P Zero Yellow medium this afternoon.

Conditions were slightly cooler than last year but similar from FP1 to FP2, with air temperatures around 15 degrees centigrade and track temperature that peaked at 25 degrees.


Although the teams raced at Imola last year, free practice in 2020 was condensed into one 90-minute session on Saturday morning.


So far, it looks like the P Zero White hard is around 0.5 seconds per lap slower than the P Zero Yellow medium, while the
P Zero Red soft tyre is about 0.7 seconds per lap faster than the medium.


The performance gaps between all three compounds are different to initial estimates. The gap between hard and medium is smaller than expected because the hard, although requiring a longer warm-up time, is then able to work well and provide a good level of grip. Between the soft and the medium the gap is instead bigger - because we were expecting lower track temperatures and general graining on the C4: not only on the long runs.


Mario Isola: "The conditions we had at Imola today were actually a little bit cooler than those we experienced six months ago in November. The tyres themselves performed well overall. We saw some graining during long runs on the soft C4 compound throughout both sessions. Imola is a medium severity track that doesn't put a lot of energy through the tyres, so in low track temperatures it's difficult to warm them up: especially the medium and hard compounds. By the afternoon, the track was already in quite good condition, despite there being very few support races. The gap between the compounds is lower than expected between hard and medium and higher than expected between medium and soft, although the difference can vary from team to team. This will naturally influence strategies".

Por cierto, la FP1 no pude verla en directo pero pensaba que la FP2 sí podría verla. Mi sorpresa ha sido ver que había comenzado antes de lo previsto y es que resulta que los horarios de hoy y de mañana han sido modificados para que no coincidan con el entierro del duque de Edimburgo.

Los horarios de hoy los adelantaron media hora y los del sábado los han adelantado una hora. Los del domingo se mantienen. Además, habrá un minuto de silencio.





Los horarios quedan así:


Sábado:

FP3 ---> de 11:00 a 12:00

Calificación ---> de 14:00 a 15:00


Domingo:

Carrera ---> 15:00

Formula 1 – Temporada 2021 – GP da Emilia Romagna – como foi a Sexta-feiraUm dia perfeito para a Mercedes, conquistando as duas primeiras posições nas duas sessões e a sexta-feira foi vitoriosa para o finlandês Valtteri Bottas que ficou com os melhores tempos do dia. As expectativas eram para a Red Bull de Max Verstappen eram de estar na frente, mas o dia da Red Bull foi de problemas.


Na primeira sessão, Perez que vinha em volta rápida acabou atingindo a roda dianteira de Esteban Ocon, isso devido aos problemas com a transmissão da Formula 1 que só aconteceu na primeira sessão livre, isso livrou os dois pilotos de punição. Na segunda sessão foi à vez de Max Verstappen ter problemas, dessa vez foram problemas mecânicos que obrigou o Holandês a parar o carro.

Enquanto que a Mercedes teve seus dois pilotos aproveitando todo o tempo das 2 horas da sessão (quando não teve a bandeira vermelha), a Red Bull teve problemas e o trabalho os seus pilotos acabou comprometido, pelo menos no dia de hoje.


Duas equipes que se destacaram bastante com os dois pilotos foram a Ferrari e a Alpha Tauri, Seus pilotos ficaram nas primeiras posições, com maior destaque para Leclerc, Sainz e Gasly. O piloto francês ficou com uma excelente 3ªposição. Já os dois pilotos da Ferrari se posicionaram muito bem e ficaram nas primeiras posições, apesar de Leclerc ter batido de leve no final da segunda sessão. Yuki Tsunoda andou rápido na segunda sessão e ficou em 7º, atrás de Sergio Perez da Red Bull, mas mostrou que pode ser tão rápido como Gasly.


Quem apareceu e chamou a atenção no dia de hoje, por incrível que pareça foi a Williams, principalmente no treino da manhã, onde Nicholas Lafiti ficou em 9º e George Russell em 11º. Será que isso é indicativo de que finalmente a Williams brigaria por boas posições no final de semana? A segunda Sessão pode dar esperanças de um melhor resultado com a 12ªposição de Nicholas Latifi, que ficou a frente de George Russell. Mclaren não teve destaque, mas pode ter escondido o jogo.

Bom desempenho da Alfa Romeo, o italiano Antonio Giovinazzi ficou na 9ªposição, Na Aston Martin continua Stroll andando mais rápido que Vettel, é cedo para se chegar a alguma conclusão, mas incomoda ver o tetracampeão do Mundo numa situação tão triste como essa desde da segunda metade da temporada de 2018, é preciso que o tetracampeão do mundo reage ou então vai ter a aposentadoria como o possível futuro. O que piora ainda mais é que Fernando Alonso após 2 anos afastado da Formula 1 já esta adaptado ao carro da Alpine, nos treinos, o espanhol mostrou que pode incomodar no final de semana.


E o que falar de Nikita Mazepin, uma rodada no começo da sessão, uma batida no final da primeira sessão e sendo mais de meio segundo mais lento do que Mick Schumacher e muita dor de cabeça… Será mesmo que vale a pena ter um piloto pagante ruim e que tenha um histórico tão ruim e escroto como esse piloto? Sinceramente, eu acho bem difícil defender um piloto desses.


Logo mais, as 6 da manhã vai ter o terceiro treino livre e as 9 da manhã a classificação para o Grid de largada do GP da Emilia Romagna, 2ªetapa do campeonato mundial de Formula 1.

Lewis HAMILTON se lleva su primera pole en Imola, la 99 de su carrera.

Junto a él saldrá mañana Checo PÉREZ, que ha hecho una calificación magnífica, quedando a solo 35 milésimas de la pole.

VERSTAPPEN ha cometido un pequeño error en su última vuelta que le ha hecho quedar en tercera posición.

Desde la cuarta plaza saldrá LECLERC y tras él GASLY, RICCIARDO y NORRIS, que hizo una gran vuelta en Q3 en la que marcó 1:14.454 con la que habría conseguido la tercera posición pero que le fue anulada por superar los límites de la pista en la curva 9.

Inusual ver a BOTTAS en 8ª posición, que ha quedado a casi medio segundo de su compañero después de haber estado ayer dominando los tiempos.

OCON y STROLL, al que también le anularon su vuelta en Q3 por pasarse en la curva 9, completan las 10 primeras posiciones.

El primer piloto que podrá elegir compuesto mañana es Carlos SAINZ, que partirá 11º junto a RUSSELL.

Tras ellos saldrán VETTEL y LATIFI.

La siguiente línea de salida la completan ALONSO y RAIKKONEN. Fernando ha comentado que no ha encontrado velocidad y que espera tener más suerte mañana en carrera de la que tuvo en Baréin.

GIOVINAZZI, SCHUMACHER, MAZEPIN y TSUNODA, que admite haber sido demasiado optimista y que eso le ha hecho tener el accidente, cierran la parrilla de salida.

- Va a estar interesante si ya no hay órdenes de equipo en la 2ª carrera :risitas:

Formula 1 – Temporada 2021 – GP da Emilia Romagna – ClassificaçãoEm treino sensacional onde poderia ter dado até em um piloto da Mclaren na pole acabou na 99ªpole da carreira de Lewis Hamilton. A Mercedes que começou o final de semana com pretensões modestas acaba com a pole, os dois pilotos da Red Bull vem logo atrás do heptacampeão do Mundo.


Já confinados a ficarem no Q1, Mick Schumacher e Nikita Mazepin foram os primeiros a entrarem na pista, o piloto alemão ficou 1 segundo a frente do piloto russo na primeira volta. É Evidente o quanto Mick é mais piloto que Nikita (O mal educado piloto que responde grosseiramente a Mariana Becker na transmissão da Band). Evidente que a marca dos pilotos da Haas seria batida, mas quando praticamente todo mundo estava na pista, o japonês Yuki Tsunoda foi para o muro na saída da chicane. A 12 minutos do final do Q1 ocorreu a bandeira vermelha, a 4ªdo final de semana que demorou 10 minutos para a retirada do carro do Japonês.

Stroll conseguiu fazer a volta e acabou passando para a liderança, O treino recomeçou e os pilotos das maiores equipes começaram a aparecer. Perez chegou a fazer uma boa volta, mas por passar dos limites da pista essa volta foi anulada. Verstappen passou a liderança, mas segundos depois Bottas passou a ponta com 1:14.926, depois o próprio finlandês melhorou para 1:14.672 e se tornou o mais rápido da primeira parte da classificação. Com Hamilton em 2º e Norris em 3º.


Na parte final, a minutos de terminar a sessão os dois pilotos da Williams estavam sendo eliminados, mas na última volta, ambos conseguiram bons tempos para passar ao Q2. Destaque para Nicholas Latifi na 12ªposição e a frente de George Russell que ficou em 14º o que mostra a nítida melhora dos pilotos da Williams.


Os 2 pilotos da Alfa Romeo e da Haas foram eliminados e se juntaram a Tsunoda nas 5 últimas posições no Grid de largada.

No Q3, tivemos um final de classificação sensacional. Os primeiros a entrarem na pista foram Stroll, Norris e Ricciardo. O piloto inglês da Mclaren entrava como um dos favoritos a pole position, assim como Hamilton, Bottas, Verstappen e até mesmo Perez.
A 8:50 do final, Norris faz 1:14.875 numa volta bem rápida do piloto inglês, mas Sergio Perez é mais rápido, assim como Lewis Hamilton que passou a liderança com 1:14.411 e Max Verstappen ficou em 2º com 1:14.502. Perez era o 3º seguido de Norris e Leclerc. Bottas vinha apenas na 6ªposição, só a frente de Gasly, Ocon, Ricciardo e Stroll (teve uma volta anulada). Todo mundo ainda teria uma chance de fazer uma tentativa.

Nos 2 últimos minutos, todo mundo foi para a pista em busca da pole. Foi sensacional a disputa. Norris fez uma brilhante volta, mas essa volta acabou cancelada já que Norris acabou ficando com o tempo que tinha. Lewis Hamilton não melhorou seu tempo e correu risco de perder a pole position, mas acabou conquistando a pole com o tempo de 1:14.411. Foi uma pole conquistada de raspão, já que Perez fez 1:14.446 e Verstappen 1:14.498 ficaram na 2ª e 3ªposições. É a primeira vez que o mexicano larga na primeira fila em sua carreira, Já Verstappen cometeu um erro na última volta e acabou perdendo a chance de emplacar 3 poles seguidas (Abu Dhabi 2020 e Bahrein 2021) se tivesse acertado a volta. Charles Leclerc da Ferrari completava a 2ªfila, na mesma 4ªposição do Bahrein.

Pierre Gasly fez uma excelente classificação e levou a Alpha Tauri até a 5ªposição na frente de Daniel Ricciardo da Mclaren que completa a 3ªfila. OS dois perdedores da classificação foram Lando Norris em 7º após ter sua volta cancelada e Valtteri Bottas que não acertou nenhuma das suas duas voltas e acabou o dia numa crítica 8ºlugar, tendo de fechar a Quarta-fila.

Completando os 10 primeiros colocados ficaram Esteban Ocon da Alpine e Lance Stroll da Aston Martin, que não teve volta computada. Amanhã as 10 da manhã teremos a largada das 63 voltas do GP da Emilia Romagna, a segunda etapa do Mundial de Formula 1. Promete ser uma das grandes corridas da temporada de 2021.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la jornada clasificatoria:

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - Mercedes
Lewis scored his 99th pole position in Formula One with a time of 1:14.411. Valtteri qualified in eighth position after a difficult Q3.

Today marked the 50th consecutive double Q3 appearance for the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) F1 Team. Both drivers will start the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix on the Medium compound tyre.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Today has been great, obviously. I definitely didn't expect us to be ahead of the two Red Bulls. I think they've been so quick this weekend. There were times when they were six tenths ahead. We didn't really know where they would be, but the car was already feeling a lot better from the beginning of this weekend, so you know, mad respect to the Team for the hard work to really narrow down the window.


This track is all medium and high speed corners, so I think that's why we've closed the gap. Temperatures are much lower which has brought us closer to the Red Bulls. But they are so strong - it's going to take absolutely perfect laps to stay ahead of them if we are going to have a chance of the win tomorrow.

Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Today was a little bit confusing and I don't understand the Q3 performance yet. On the first run of Q3 I had oversteer and then the second run, the rear end was not so good. Not what I was aiming for today, especially with the feeling I had at the start of qualifying.


Q3 first run, I went into turn two and had a really sudden snap from the rear end and I lost a lot of time. The same in run two, I couldn't trust the rear end. That isn't something I felt in Q1 or Q2 so it's difficult to understand - we will have to investigate. Overtaking here is difficult with a narrow track but I will fight to give it everything tomorrow.

Toto Wolff: The pole was a surprise because at the moment we do not have the quickest car. It was so close and Max, without the mistake, would have been on pole. But the loss compared to last year is just enormous - we were six tenths ahead and now we are two tenths behind. So, we need to scratch our heads and just try to find the performance. It's a quicker car than in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), I think we have got the car in a better balance window, that's the main reason for the improvement. We had some drivability concerns in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) and we are sorting that out - slowly we are getting there.

It's a big advantage for them because not only two Red Bulls behind but Perez is starting on softs so they can do two different strategies. Valtteri has to make his way through the soft runners, which he will and can, but I think we are a little bit on the backfoot.

Andrew Shovlin: Congratulations to Lewis on his 99th pole position. He certainly had to work hard for this one but drove really well through the session. It's not been an easy day by any measure. We were struggling to get enough temperature for a single lap and if you start with the tyres on the cold side, the grip just isn't there and you spend most of the lap sliding around. We've got a bit of analysis to do to understand Valtteri's issue. He was looking very strong in Q1 but set his best time on the third lap and couldn't repeat that time for the rest of the session. We're expecting another close fight tomorrow, we've at least got both cars on the medium tyre which should give us flexibility around stop laps and hopefully we've got a car that's fast enough to fight for the win.

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - Red Bull

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "What a massive result for us, knowing that I could win the race tomorrow is definitely a good feeling. There are a lot of positives to take out of today but I made a little mistake at the final turn, I was so close to pole. I can't believe this is my first Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) start on the grid, as I started from the pit lane in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) and it's from the front of the grid! It just shows the amount of work we have put into this as a Team is paying off. Looking to the race tomorrow, Max and I are of course on different strategies, I am starting on the softs and Max is on the mediums so I think we have a good race ahead of us, especially as we've been able to apply the pressure to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes). It was a great result for us today but we can't get too carried away, I know that there is a lot of work to be done and it's important that we keep making good process."

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It was not a clean lap in Q3. I made some mistakes and when you go off on a qualifying lap it is never going to be good. The first sector of the first lap wasn't good in the wake of another car so I knew there was a lot of time there and I pushed a bit more on the second lap but I ran wide on the exit of Turn 3 and cut the grass a bit which wasn't very lovely for the lap time. Sometimes these things happen and you can't do a perfect or near perfect lap all the time. There are always things you can do better even when you say it's a perfect lap but today was far from that. I shocked myself that I had a lap like that as it's been a long time since I felt this way after qualifying. Checo did a great job so congratulations to him. We have a good race car and tomorrow is where you score points. There are a lot of factors involved in the race like the weather and the start but for the Team it's always good to have two cars up there, so I hope me and Checo can make it more difficult for Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) to decide on a strategy."


Christian Horner: "It was a great team performance today with our best qualifying result in Italy since 2013. Sergio did a fantastic job in just his second qualifying session for us and it was a shame for Max who made an uncharacteristic mistake at Turn 3 on his final run in Q3. It's incredibly satisfying to see both drivers up there and in with a shot at pole, especially in a nail-biting session where the top three were separated by less than a tenth. Sergio is really finding his feet and today marks his best F1 starting grid position. With minimal seat time he's doing a great job and settling into the Team very well. We're in a good position and with both drivers on alternative strategies, we've got a few options which we'll work on this evening to bring home the best possible result tomorrow. It should make for an exciting Grand Prix."

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - Aston Martin


Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "I am pretty happy with the session, but it is a shame that my best lap was deleted in Q3. We were in ninth so that knocked me down a place. The margins for track limits are very fine and a few drivers were caught out today. I said yesterday how much I enjoy this track and the car felt really good today - as though it has really come alive this weekend. That is encouraging, but it is a very tight grid and we want to be closer to the front. We are all working hard to do that. We are not miles off and we know where we can improve. It will be interesting to see how we perform in the race because the long run pace yesterday looked similar to the teams around us. Let's see what we can do tomorrow."

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "Overall, I think it was a reasonable qualifying session. I think there was a little bit left on the table in some of my laps, but it is obviously very tight and a tenth or two can cost you quite a lot of positions. I feel we are making progress, but I am still missing the full confidence to extract the maximum. I am still not entirely happy, but I am happier than last time [in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir)]. I can see and feel the progress we are making: session by session, lap by lap, we are getting that little bit better. I do not know what to expect tomorrow because all the teams appear to be very closely matched in the middle of the grid, and it is a narrow track where overtaking is not easy. There is also the question of whether it will rain, which might help us. Regardless, we need a clean getaway tomorrow and then we can take it from there."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "A solid afternoon where both drivers were pushing hard. Lance's best effort was discounted for a breach of track limits, but he progressed to Q3 once again and is well placed to score points tomorrow. We saw in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) that we were more competitive in the race compared to qualifying and I anticipate the same here. Lance should be able to race the cars ahead of him, just as he did in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). Our race pace should also help us bring Sebastian into contention for points. We will do our homework tonight to be fully prepared for tomorrow with plenty of strategy options."

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - Alpine


Alpine F1 Team will line-up with Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) in ninth and Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) fifteenth on the grid for tomorrow's Emilia Romagna Grand Prix after a tightly contested qualifying session in Imola.

Both drivers started Q1 on the Soft tyres, but their initial laps were aborted following a red flag after the Alpha Tauri of Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda) clipped the wall at Turn 15.


Following a short delay, the session resumed and both cars made it safely through to Q2 with Esteban fifth and Fernando on the cusp in fifteenth, 0.142secs from the drop zone.


The start of Q2 saw both drivers start with used Soft tyres. Esteban and Fernando were narrowly short of the top 10 positions after their initial runs. On their second efforts - armed with new Soft tyres - Esteban improved to a 1min 15.117secs to make the final shoot-out in eighth, with Fernando out in fifteenth.


Esteban, in the sole remaining A521 for Q3, attempted two laps with an improvement on his second run good enough for ninth on tomorrow's grid.

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It's a great result for us today. We maximised the potential of the car and I think ninth was the maximum we could do. To be in Q3 is satisfying and I'm pretty pleased with that. It's hard to overtake here, so it's important to be starting already in the top 10. Our rivals are a little bit ahead and that means we still need to keep improving and finding those developments will be key this season. We'll give it everything and fight tomorrow. The aim is to score points and we know it will be a long race where anything can happen."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "I was not fast enough today and didn't maximise the performance of the car. I'm disappointed in my result and let's hope we can still get something tomorrow. It's difficult to overtake here, but the points are given in the race so let's see how we do. On the other hand, Esteban did well today and showed our updates that we brought here have worked well. In Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), I had a good Saturday and a bad Sunday, so hopefully that is reversed tomorrow."


Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director: "We have mixed feelings as a team after today's qualifying. We knew it would be tight after FP3 between a handful of cars and there was always going to be a fight to have both our cars in Q3. It was a really good session for Esteban, and he was solid throughout each round of qualifying. Ninth is probably where the car is at the moment. Fernando didn't quite get it together as he'd have liked, and we'll analyse that to see how we can improve. We're looking forward to tomorrow's race. There is a chance of rain, so we'll be ready to grasp any opportunity."

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - McLaren
Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "I think on paper it's not a bad result, P6. It's really tight at the front. I think the weekend has been a bit slow for me to get going. We got a bit closer in quali and I certainly made some improvements, but I still think – and I hate to say it – it's just going to take time to keep finding the limits. I'm getting there. I obviously wish I could be there from lap one, but I think it's been a weekend of progress so far and there are definitely positives to take after qualifying. We've worked well as a team to recover from a difficult Friday, so thanks to the team here and in the factory for their hard work. I wouldn't say I'm ecstatic, but I'm certainly content with our progress."

Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A disappointing end to qualifying. I think the whole thing went very well and I was very happy with my laps all the way through. We only did one run in Q1 and Q2, which I think is the first time I've ever done that. So things were looking hopeful, but I just overdid it slightly on my final lap, which was a very good lap but just a little bit wide and the lap was taken away. Pretty disappointed, because we could've been a lot higher up and in a much better position for tomorrow.

"After we struggled yesterday, we've done a lot of work and the feeling in the car was much better today. The team both here and at the factory has done a great job overnight to work on improvements and give us a car that felt quick and was capable of fighting right up there and maybe even for pole. I'm gutted, but there are still a lot of positives to take away from today and hopefully we can convert them into a good result tomorrow."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "P6 and P7 after an exciting qualifying session puts us again in a strong position to fight for good points tomorrow. We initially felt a bit disappointed after seeing what would've been possible with Lando, who was flying today, but it was very positive to see how competitive we've been. Daniel didn't feel as comfortable in the car as Lando earlier in the weekend but did a great job, together with his engineering team, building it up throughout the quali sessions and putting in a good lap at the very end.


"Well done to the team here at the track, back home and at Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) for developing and producing a competitive car. Full focus now on preparing for the race. The weather forecast predicts rain for tomorrow afternoon. Let's get some good points again."

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - Ferrari
In qualifying for the Gran Premio del Made in Italy e dell'Emilia-Romagna, Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow pretty much confirmed its performance level seen in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) with the SF21, despite the considerable difference in track characteristics and temperature when compared to Sakhir. Saturday at the Enzo e Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) circuit confirmed just how close the hierarchy is in the group fighting just behind the top two teams.

Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) again did brilliantly over a flying lap. As in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), the Monegasque was fourth fastest, just 329 thousandths off pole position. As a comparison, the gap here at Imola five months ago was over a second. As for Carlos, he didn't make the cut to Q3, missing out by just 61 thousandths and he therefore starts from eleventh on the grid. Because he is outside the top ten, he does benefit from having a free choice of tyre with which to start the Grand Prix. The team will therefore look at all the strategy options to try and get the best possible result on a track where overtaking is usually rather difficult.


The Gran Premio del Made in Italy e dell'Emilia-Romagna, the 29th race to count for the Formula 1 World Championship to be held at Imola, starts at 15 CET tomorrow. It will run over 63 laps, equivalent to 309.049 kilometres.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): It was a very good qualifying, even though I feel we struggled a bit more compared to yesterday to achieve the lap times we wanted. We took a small compromise in terms of setup that will help us in the race tomorrow. It made it a bit more difficult in quali, so let's wait and see. I made a small error in the chicane, maybe I could have gained another 7 or 8 hundredths there, but looking at the time sheets it wouldn't have changed our position, so I am very happy with P4 today.


The track is amazing. I love it because you cannot afford to make any mistakes. There is not much tyre management involved, which is something we drivers like, because it means we can push throughout the race.


It should be an exciting but difficult race. We are lacking a bit of straight line speed, so hopefully we will have a good enough pace to get away. If not, it will be a bit more difficult, but I think that our performance overall is better here than it was in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). At Sakhir it was a real surprise to be P4 on the grid, today, a bit less so.


There is a lot of motivation in the team, a good momentum. We need to use it and continue to work as hard as possible as a team, keep our feet on the ground and continue to push as we have been doing for the past months. Then I am sure the good days are soon to come.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): Today's result is not what I wanted. I struggled to nail all the corners in one single lap since the beginning of qualifying. Every small mistake can cost you many positions in this tight field, so I am not happy because I know the lap time was there had I been able to make it all work on one strong lap.


At the same time, I think this track has exposed that I still lack a bit of experience with the car to exactly know what to expect and how to extract the absolute maximum of it. It will come, I'm sure, but I feel I'm still on a learning curve.
Into tomorrow, you can be sure I'll give my absolute best to gain positions and fight for the best result possible. I'm confident in my pace and we will try to use the free tyre choice to our advantage.


Laurent Mekies, Racing Director: Another solid performance following on from the one in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) in the opening round of the season. That's important, because it confirms we are competitive on a very different type of track and in very different conditions to those in Sakhir.


Naturally, there's a bit of disappointment that Carlos missed the cut to Q3 by just 61 thousandths in what was a very close session with 15 drivers all covered by just nine tenths. We knew that Carlos would need a few races to feel totally at ease in his new team and to gain confidence in a car that is very different to the one he was used to. He is making good progress, completely in line with our expectations. Nevertheless, his grid position means we can look at a variety of options in terms of strategy so there is every chance he can get a good result.


Charles secured the same grid position as in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) thanks to what was overall, another great performance, something that is becoming almost the norm for him and further confirmation of his great talent. Tomorrow, the main aim will be to convert the performance level seen in qualifying into the race result. If we manage it, then we can hope to head the mid-field group in this Grand Prix, which is also our main goal for the season.

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa Romeo
A challenging day in Imola saw Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN fall short of its target in a tight qualifying session for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. Despite looking good in the Friday practice sessions, the team struggled on Saturday, a situation that became apparent from FP3 in the morning. Even some clawing back of performance ahead of the afternoon session couldn't prevent Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) to bow out in Q1.

In a session interrupted by a red flag in the middle of the first set of runs, and with the threat of track limits infringements always looming, the Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN drivers claimed the 16th and 17th places on the grid. With Imola a challenging place for overtaking, our work has been cut out - but we will put up a fight. Last year, we placed two cars in the points when starting even further back on the grid, so the objective is to battle our way through the field one more time...


Frederic Vasseur: "Today's result is not what we aimed for, especially after the good performance we delivered yesterday. We were just not able to demonstrate the full potential of our car. Starting where we are won't make our job easier, but we know we can compete against many of the cars ahead of us and we will do our best to make up on the ground we lost today."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We missed out on a place in Q2 by just a tenth, but when the margins are so close that's enough to be out earlier than expected. We knew from the morning we were going to struggle, there was nothing wrong specifically but we just lost a bit of the pace we had yesterday. Tomorrow we will have a big job to get back in the points: a lot will depend on the weather, whether it rains or not. Judging by yesterday, we seem to be stronger in race trim but overtaking is not easy around here: we will do our best and see what we can get out of this race."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It's very disappointing not to get the chance to even set my final lap because of what happened today. Drivers normally respect each other on track but that was not the case today - Mazepin just failed to leave the space to the car ahead that all other drivers always give and destroyed my lap. I haven't spoken with him yet, but this is not the behaviour we expect from each other on track. It's a shame as the pace we had in the car yesterday was really good and we could have got a good result here: we will see what we can do tomorrow, but starting from P17 is not ideal as it's quite hard to overtake here. We still go out, be positive and try to get the best possible result - we scored points from the back of the grid in 2020 so we won't give up yet."

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - Haas
Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) qualified 18th and 19th, respectively, for Sunday's Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Round 2 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship at Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) in Italy.

Mazepin and Schumacher exited qualifying at the checkered in Q1 having had three timed runs on new sets of Pirelli's P Zero Red soft tires. Both cars were first on-track to start the session, Schumacher recording a 1:16.806 lap on his first outing with Mazepin logging a 1:17:806. The afternoon's early running was brought to a brief halt thanks to a red flag with fellow rookie Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda) making contact with the barriers in his AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri). When the action resumed Schumacher posted a 1:16.348 on his second tour followed by a 1:16.279 on his third and final set of softs. Mazepin ultimately set his fastest lap, a 1:16.797, on his second set of tires.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "These qualifying sessions don't fail to throw something new at you. Before we go out, we obviously expect to have a clean session, we have our run plan and we expect to manage our time, and then something happens early on and you've suddenly got less time. The stress element comes in brings the excitement. It was difficult to get the optimum lap time out there as this track was very cold today and it was important to build the tire temperatures. To do that, you need to go fast, and obviously other cars were slowing down. Loads happened but it's an upward curve so far in my career, so I'm happy about that. I think we're extracting the most there is for now in the car and building a good foundation."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "I was pushing a lot more, but unfortunately I lost out at the Variante Alta chicane - I think there was another one or two tenths in it really. But the good thing is we know we can improve, we're not yet at the end. We saw improvement from Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), so I'm really happy seeing that for us. We'll wait and see what happens tomorrow in the race - long runs are always a different game really. It's hard to predict what's been happening through the free practices, everyone's trying different things and set-ups. I'm mindful of how Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) went, so I'll take that into consideration this weekend. I'm just looking forward to driving again tomorrow."


Guenther Steiner: "Even if the result doesn't look great, I think we've made good progress this weekend. FP3 was pretty good. I think everything is settling down a little bit. Qualifying, obviously, we finished 18th and 19th, but nevertheless we weren't too far off the cars ahead of us - which is encouraging. Compared to Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) we saw that we made progress because, I wouldn't say this one was a confusing qualifying session, but it was quite eventful with things like the red flag and so on. After that had happened the guys adapted pretty well and got on with their job. This is all about gaining experience and the next time it will be even better. At the moment they're getting a lot of experience with different situations, all of which they need to have - they'll be better prepared as a result of having gone through these things."

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauri
Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I must say it was very good today, I'm really happy - the whole of Qualifying was a bit harder than in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), as I think quite a lot of teams have really upped the pace. I'm pleased I managed to put everything together in Q3 - it was an extremely clean lap - and to get the P5 at our home race here in Imola is a great result for the whole team. The gaps are extremely close - I think we're just a couple of hundredths off Charles and just three or four tenths from the top guys - so it's a great achievement today and we're in a good position for tomorrow. We've got to prepare for every situation in the race - we could have some rain tomorrow, or maybe some drama up the front, so we've got to be ready to capitalise on every opportunity we can."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "The crash today in Qualifying was my mistake and I want to apologise to the team - I was pushing too hard into the entry of the chicane and just couldn't control the car after that. It's a shame because up until that corner the car felt really good and it was a strong lap - I think we could've gotten through to Q2 on just one compound. I believe there's the potential for rain at the start of tomorrow's race, so anything can happen, and I'll try to push as hard as I can to make my way forward from the back. The car looks really good, so I'll just reset my mind tonight and jump back in the car tomorrow to go racing."


Jody Egginton (Technical Director): "The car was competitive yesterday and we're quite happy with the developments we've brought to this race - there's good speed in the car and both drivers have been getting the most from it. This continued into FP3 today, although the field had tightened up a bit as other teams have run different strategies across Friday and Saturday, so we knew qualifying would be a close battle. Yuki was unfortunate in his Q1 run today - the lap was shaping up quite nicely, but he lost the car coming out of the chicane and hit the wall, sustaining some damage. These things happen to young drivers on their journey into F1 but he'll bounce back from it, the most important thing is that he's ok, and we'll get the car fixed in time for him tomorrow. Pierre was a far more straightforward progression through Qualifying, without too much difficulty. He managed to complete Q1 on one set of tyres and then continued to make good use of them in Q2. Then, in his Q3 final run he was able to complete a really good lap - extracting the maximum from the car. Pierre's Qualifying position is representative of where we feel the car is this weekend, we're firmly in the midfield mix and will be fighting for good points on Sunday."

Emilia Romagna GP: Qualifying team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69447/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 12th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 14th for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. It marks the team's best qualifying performance since the 2020 Hungarian Grand Prix, the last time both cars made it through to Q2.George continued to improve on his lap times during both sessions, posting his fastest time of qualifying in Q2 with a 1:15.261 on the soft Pirelli tyre. Nicholas followed suit, continuing to improve on his times before finally setting a 1:15.593 on the soft compound in Q2.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: We've had a good day today with the car behaving well and responding to the changes overnight. Both drivers did a great job of extracting the laptime under pressure.


Nicholas had a small snap of oversteer on one of his laps this morning, which caused some minor damage to the car and although we were able to get him back out again during FP3, we needed to complete some more thorough checks between FP3 and Qualifying. This took a little longer than anticipated, but some excellent work from the full team of mechanics, as well as the red flag early in Q1 meant that he was able to complete a full run programme.


The pace of the car was good, and the new parts that we tested yesterday are working well. Based on our experience last October, we thought that this track would be better suited to the car than Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), however, it is nice to have seen this confirmed today. Although we are pleased to have got both cars into Q2, there is a lot of work to do to crystallise today's performance into a meaningful result tomorrow. The weather for the race looks a little uncertain, but we hope that we can use any doubt over the conditions to our advantage.


Both drivers have been excellent all weekend, with Nicholas being very strong from the beginning of FP1 and pushing hard on every lap. George took a little longer to understand his car yesterday, but really put in some strong laps today. Both are in a good position to race hard tomorrow.

George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69447/drivers/66/george-russell): The car has been feeling good this weekend, personally I was off the pace all weekend and Nicholas was faster than me in every session. I was struggling and I didn't have the confidence, but in Q2 we made it work.

We got through Q1 by the skin of our teeth and then did a really good job in Q2 when it mattered. I am really happy with P12, the car is looking quick in a straight line which is going to help us tomorrow on a track that is difficult to overtake. I think it's going to be an exciting one.

Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I am very pleased with today's performance. We nearly didn't make it out for qualifying due to my little bump with the wall in FP3. Even though we did get back out on track we still had some residual things that the team needed to check over.


We had a good Q1 and I was really pleased with the lap. Q2 I was a little disappointed as I didn't get the improvement I needed to due to a little mistake at the beginning of my second lap. Overall, I am really pleased with the result. I am expecting the car to feel good in race trim. It is a notoriously difficult track to overtake on, but fingers crossed for a good one.

FORMULA 1 PIRELLI GRAN PREMIO DEL MADE IN ITALY E DELL'EMILIA ROMAGNA 2021 - Autodromo di Imola
Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 18 de abril de 2021


Bonita carrera que termina con victoria para Max VERSTAPPEN que realizó una gran salida pasando de la tercera a la primera posición, posición que supo defender a pesar de la delicada situación de la pista al inicio de la carrera y los incidentes ocurridos que obligaron a relanzar la carrera en dos ocasiones.

Lewis HAMILTON vió cómo en la salida Max lograbra ponerse por delante y, al no lograr recuperar posición en pista, intentó hacerlo recortando tiempo en la parada de Verstappen pero un problema al cambiar su rueda delantera izquierda hizo que su parada fuera de cuatro segundoos, reincorporándose por detrás del holandés. En su lucha por volver a acercarse a él e intentar el adelantamiento, cometió un error que le llevó contra las protecciones rompiendo su alerón delantero y perdiendo incluso una vuelta. Pero la suerte del campeón le volvió a ser propicia y la bandera roja aparecida por el accidente entre BOTTAS y RUSSELL lo volvió a meter en carrera al poder recuperar la vuelta perdida y estar la pista seca, lo que le permitió poder remontar hasta la segunda posición. Además, logró marcar la vuelta rápida y ese punto le permite seguir siendo líder del mundial.

El podio lo ha completado de manera más que merecida Lando NORRIS, que hizo una carrera impecable. En el inicio comentó al equipo que tenía más ritmo y RICCIARDO le cedió la posición para que lo demostrara y, vaya si lo demostró. Pronto se distanció y comenzó a remontar. Tras la bandera roja arriesgó y montó neumático blando por el medio de la mayoría logrando ponerse segundo. En las últimas vueltas logró mantener detrás primero a LECLERC y luego se lo puso difícil a Hamilton, que llegó hasta él siendo bastante más rápido.

Ferrari se ha quedado a las puertas del podio con LECLERC, que ha tenido una carrera muy sólida, 4º y Carlos SAINZ 5º. La carrera de Sainz ha ido de menos a más. En el inicio ha cometido varios errores que le han hecho perder tiempo. Ha comentado que necesitaba encontrar los límites del coche en agua. Luego parece que se ha centrado y ha conseguido remontar posiciones a un ritmo muy similar al de Leclerc.

Tras los Ferrari ha finalizado RICCIARDO, que ha tenido una carrera bastante desapercibida, igual que la de STROLL, que ha conseguido sobreponerse a los problemas de frenos que tuvo en la vuelta de formación y cruzar la meta en 7ª posición.

La 8ª plaza ha sido para GASLY, que ha tenido una carrera complicada al haber comenzado la carrera con neumáticos de lluvia en vez de intermedios. Además, el equipo lo tuvo 14 vueltas con ese neumático, lo que le hizo perder mucho tiempo y posiciones que luego le tocó remontar.

Kimi RAIKKONEN cruzó la meta en 9ª posición pero tiene abierta una investigación por una posible infracción en el protocolo de salida tras el coche de seguridad.

El último de los puntos ha sido para Esteban OCON, que ha logrado quedar por delante de Fernando ALONSO, que ha comentado que estaba contento con cómo le había ido la carrera, que estaba cogiendo experiencia.

Carrera para olvidar la de Checo PÉREZ, y más después de la buena actuación que tuvo ayer. Comenzó la carrera perdiendo posición con Verstappen y luego cometió un error tras el coche de seguridad que le hizo perder dos posiciones. Al recuperarlas, fue sancionado con 10 segundos, lo que le lastró la carrera, cometiendo más errores. Al final ha terminado 12º.

TSUNODA es otro que ha tenido un fin de semana para olvidar. Tras su accidente de ayer, hoy no ha podido remontar lo que se esperaba. Va a tener que tener más cuidado con respetar los límites de la pista porque fue sancionado con cinco segundos por pasarse varias vueltas.

Tras el japonés ha cruzado la meta GIOVINAZZI y los dos HAAS, con SCHUMACHER por delante de MAZEPIN. Los dos pilotos han tenido problemas aquí, aunque con ese coche es lo normal.

VETTEL ha tenido bastantes problemas en este GP. Tras los problemas de frenos de Stroll, el equipo decidió revisar su coche. Lo llevaron al pit lane y salió desde allí. El equipo no tenía las ruedas colocadas a tiempo y fue sancionado con un Stop & Go de 10 segundos. Lo increible de la FIA es que comunicaron la sanción tras hacer su parada, sobre la vuelta 20. Tuvo varias salidas de pista y terminó retirándose a falta de un par de vueltas.

Otro que no copletó la carrera fue LATIFI, que se fue contra las protecciones. Una pena que Williams se marche de aquí sin puntuar y con sus dos coches accidentados.

GP da Emilia Romagna – 2ªEtapa do Mundial de Formula 1 – 2021Corrida que começou com chuva e terminou com a pista seca, uma interrupção e belos duelos. Tudo que marcou o GP da Emilia Romagna será narrada em texto. Como foi que Verstappen venceu esse GP.


Com chuva, a corrida começou e na largada, Verstappen tomou a ponta de Hamilton em uma grande largada do piloto da Red Bull. Já Lewis, precisou segurar a segunda posição com uma parte da sua asa levemente danificada (Ao tentar dar o troco em Max). Leclerc passou Perez e assumiu a terceira posição. Detalhe: Leclerc rodou na volta de apresentação, mas não teve prejuízo para sua corrida no começo de prova.


Logo na primeira volta, o primeiro safety car aconteceu. Nicholas Latifi acabou rodando e até conseguiu voltar sem problemas, mas dai Mazepin jogou o canadense para o muro e acabando com uma possível e promissora prova do piloto da Williams.


Verstappen na frente, seguido de Hamilton, Leclerc, Perez, Ricciardo, Gasly, Stroll, Sainz jr., Norris, Bottas, Russell, Raikkonen, Giovinazzi, Tsunoda, Mick Schumacher, Alonso, Vettel, Mazepin e Ocon.


Na 4ªVolta, Mick Schumacher ao aquecer os pneus roda e bate logo após a saída dos boxes. E o mais absurdo de tudo, os boxes estavam fechados e Mick teve de andar por 2 voltas seguidas com a asa dianteira danificada, até que os boxes fossem reabertos.


Relargada na 7ªvolta, Lewis tentou recuperar a ponta, mas Verstappen se manteve firme na frente enquanto que Leclerc se animou e tentou atacar o piloto da Mercedes. Perez acabou perdendo posições no Safety Car e erroneamente passou Ricciardo para recuperar a suposta posição, se deu mal e foi punido com o Stop Go de 10 segundos, eles seriam compridos assim que ele fosse para os boxes.

Gasly estava prejudicado, seus pneus de pista molhada não rendiam uma pista em processo de secagem, graças a essa tática equivocada da Alpha Tauri, Gasly acabou superado por Sainz jr. e depois por Norris, Stroll, Bottas e os demais pilotos. Na volta 17, o francês faz sua parada e coloca os pneus intermediários. Em todo esse meio tempo, Sainz jr. escapou para fora da pista por 2 vezes, mas acabou sem maiores prejuízos.


Lá na frente, em apenas 18 voltas, Max chega no grupo de trás para colocar volta sobre eles, a velocidade de Verstappen e Hamilton era impressionante sobre os demais. Enquanto isso, Lando Norris passou Daniel Ricciardo e passou a ser o 5ºcolocado.


Já lá atrás, Vettel arriscou pneus de pista seca, mas acabou sendo punido e teve de voltar aos boxes. A pista já estava começando a ficar boa o bastante para ser colocados os pneus de pista seca, um trio já estava sendo formado. Na volta 28, Verstappen vai para os boxes e a partir dai, praticamente todo mundo foi fazer sua parada para colocar os pneus de pista seca.


Hamilton passou na volta 29 e voltou logo atrás de Verstappen. Duas voltas depois, Lewis ao tentar se aproximar para atacar Max acabou passando reto na Tossa que o levou para fora da pista. Por um momento se achava que ela o fim para Lewis, mas ele conseguiu voltar à corrida, mas com um enorme prejuízo, quase uma volta sobre o líder da prova.

Na volta 33, Bottas que vivia uma corrida muito complicada acabou atingido por George Russell e sofrendo junto do piloto da Williams um grave acidente. Felizmente não teve nenhum dos pilotos ferido o machucado…


Opinião… Quem foi o culpado? Para mim o lance é normal de corrida, Russell tentou passar Bottas, mas ao pisar na grama molhada acabou rodando e atingindo Bottas. Não tem um culpado nessa história, já que o finlandês estava na trajetória normal, deixando espaço para Russell fazer a ultrapassagem. O agravante da história é que a pista estava seca, mas fora do traçado ainda estava molhado e a grama ainda estava molhada.


Com todo o estrago da pista, nem mesmo o safety car foi o bastante. A Bandeira vermelha foi acionada e a corrida parou na 34ªVolta para os reparos necessários na pista e a retirada dos carros e destroços. Com tudo que aconteceu, os pilotos voltaram a pista após 40 minutos de paralização. A Classificação era a seguinte: Verstappen, Leclerc, Norris, Perez, Sainz jr., Ricciardo, Stroll, Raikkonen, Hamilton, Tsunoda, Giovinazzi, Alonso, Ocon, Gasly, Vettel, Schumacher e Mazepin.


Após arrumarem o grid, os pilotos saíram para 1 volta com safety car. Na 35ªVolta a relargada aconteceu, Norris pula muito bem e ganha a segunda posição das mãos de Leclerc. Tsunoda chegou a passar Hamilton, mas acabou o japonês rodando e perdendo várias posições, só voltando na 13ªposição. Kimi Raikkonen perdeu posições na volta de reapresentação e perdeu posições de Hamilton e Tsunoda.


Norris chega a flertar uma aproximação em Verstappen, mas o holandês tinha mais carro e logo abriu para o piloto da Mclaren que estava com os pneus mais macios. Sergio Perez que vinha em uma bela 4ªposição roda na Variante Villeneuve e acaba caindo para as últimas posições.


Lewis Hamilton vinha em 7º, mas estava com dificuldades para passar Stroll, foram 5 voltas onde o piloto da Aston Martin se defendeu muito bem. Na volta 39, Hamilton conseguiu a ultrapassagem e assumiu a 6ªposição. A próxima vitima era Daniel Ricciardo, enquanto essa briga iria acontecer, Verstappen já tinha colocado quase 4 segundos a frente de Norris que vinha com Leclerc e Sainz jr. um pouco atrás.


Hamilton passou Ricciardo na primeira tentativa e subiu para a 5ªposição. Naquela altura da prova, não seria nada demais ele recuperar a segunda posição, pois ainda faltava 20 voltas para terminar a corrida. Enquanto Hamilton tenta chegar em Sainz jr. Vettel e Perez brigavam pela 12ªposição por muitas voltas, até que Perez conseguiu passar o tetracampeão do mundo na 48ªVolta.

Hamilton chegou em Sainz jr. e a briga entre os 2 durou por 2 voltas. Foi na volta 50 que Lewis superou o piloto da Ferrari e passou para 4ªposição. Quase que de imediato encostou em Leclerc da Ferrari que já vinha a menos de 1 segundo de Norris e por isso ele poderia abrir a Asa dianteira. Isso dificultou muito a missão de Hamilton.


Durante voltas, Leclerc usava a asa móvel e evitou por muitas voltas a ultrapassagem de Hamilton. Porém, no momento que Leclerc não pode usar mais a asa móvel acabou ficando vuneravel e na volta 57, Hamilton passa Leclerc e assumiu a 3ªposição. Só restava ultrapassar Lando Norris para recuperar a segunda posição. Hamilton não teve facilidade com o piloto da Mclaren que lutou muito para permanecer na frente.


Na volta 60, Hamilton finalmente conseguiu essa ultrapassagem e volta para a segunda posição. Era o máximo que dava para Lewis fazer, além da volta mais rápida que estava nas suas mãos.


Max Verstappen conquista a vitória em Imola, em uma atuação irretocável e dominadora na corrida inteira, A primeira do ano o que deixa como o vice-líder do Mundial, 1 ponto atrás de Lewis Hamilton, segundo colocado da prova. A vantagem do piloto da Mercedes é o ponto da volta mais rápida da prova de hoje. Por sinal, uma corrida que poderia acabar bem mal para Lewis, mas a bandeira vermelha ajudou e a recuperação que teve fez da recuperação de Hamilton numa grande recuperação. O pódio foi completado pelo inglês Lando Norris. O segundo pódio do piloto inglês na Formula 1 pela Mclaren, o que torna Lando o 3ºlugar no Mundial de pilotos.


Ótima corrida de Charles Leclerc, apesar do 4ºlugar e de não ter conseguido o pódio, mas acabou andando sempre nas primeiras posições. Carlos Sainz jr. apesar de 2 saídas de pista acabou na 5ªposição. Daniel Ricciardo não conseguiu andar tão rápido quanto Norris, mas conseguiu chegar em uma honrosa 6ªposição, segurando Lance Stroll e Pierre Gasly na reta final de corrida. O piloto da Aston Martin acabou sendo punido em 5 segundos (que ter levado vantagem em uma curva) e com isso o beneficiado foi o piloto da Alpha Tauri que ficou em 7ºlugar enquanto que Stroll ficou em 8ºlugar. Ambos com corridas elogiáveis, Gasly conseguiu se recuperar da péssima escolha de pneus da sua equipe, já Stroll fez uma corrida muito elogiável e resistindo a ataques de pilotos mais rápidos, uma pena a punição, mas uma boa corrida do Canadense.


Kimi Raikkonen chegou em 9º, mas foi punido em 30 segundos e caiu para a 13ªposição e perdendo os primeiros pontos da Alfa Romeo. Já a Alpine conquistou seus primeiros pontos com seus dois pilotos, Ocon ficou em 9º e Alonso na 10º. Os dois seguraram Sergio Perez, os erros foram decisivos para que chevo saísse de Ímola sem ponto na 11ªposição.


Yuki Tsunoda pagou pela inexperiência, a rodada comprometeu suas chances de pontos ficando apenas na 12ªposição. Antonio Giovinazzi acabou tendo de ir para os boxes para retirar uma peça de carro, foi outro piloto que teve seu resultado comprometido, ficou na 14ªposição, a 1 volta atrás.


Sebastian Vettel em outra corrida comprometida, abandonou na última volta, mas acabou classificado na 15ªposição, a frente de Mick Schumacher e Nikita Mazepin da Haas. Os carros da equipe norte-americana são muito ruins mesmo e não dão qualquer chance para seus pilotos desempenharem algo melhor. A terceira etapa do campeonato vai acontecer em Portugal, no circuito de Alvarge no dia 2 de Maio.

Impresiones de los equipos una vez finalizada la carrera:

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - MercedesLewis clinched second place in changeable conditions in Imola despite hitting the barrier on lap 31 and falling to ninth position before the race was restarted on lap 34 following a red flag. Valtteri suffered a DNF after an incident with Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams)' George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69471/drivers/66/george-russell) on lap 33. Lewis set the fastest lap of the race to claim the bonus point on offer.Lewis (44 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 1 point from Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) (43 points) with Valtteri (16 points) in P5. The Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-AMG Petronas F1 Team (60 points) leads Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) (53 points) by 7 points in the Constructors' Championship.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Considering I was facing the barrier at one stage, then a lap down, yeah, it was a difficult day in that regard. I had some really good pace in the rain and was catching but just a little bit impatient, maybe, with the backmarkers. I'm only human so these mistakes happen. I'm grateful that I was back in the race and could hunt down and get back to second. The car had a rough time today. I started first, should have been first at the finish but these things are sent to test us and we've got a great battle on our hands. Game on.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): I'm okay physically. It was a half-decent shunt but obviously could have been a lot worse at that speed. George got close and decided to go for a move. Obviously the track is quite narrow, there is only one dry line and he went for the outside, there was space all the time for two cars but he obviously lost the car and hit me. I haven't spoken to him so far: I couldn't hear a thing what he was on about and obviously we will have a different perspective on it. It was a tough race until then, from where I started it wasn't easy to make ground. But I need to take whatever positives I can from this weekend and move on.


Toto Wolff: Leading the Championship with the fastest lap is one thing but what actually gives it a silver lining or positive connotation today is that we seem to have a really quick race car.


Unfortunately, the crash between George and Valtteri was unnecessary. Valtteri had a difficult first 30 laps and shouldn't have been there but George should have never launched into this manoeuvre considering that the track was drying up. It meant taking risks and the other car is a Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) in front of him and in any drivers' development as a young driver you must never lose this global perspective. Lots to learn for him I guess.


Apart from that we had all highs and lows from the incident in the first corner which cost us two tenths in aero performance on Lewis' car. Then we had Lewis hitting the barrier on lap 31. The recovery drive from Lewis after the race restarted was really brilliant, ten out of ten.


Overall, today was very difficult to judge because of the circumstances but we had a very good car today in the wet and in the drying up. We are slowly starting to understand it but according to the data we are still not having a car and power unit that can match the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Honda.


Andrew Shovlin: On lap 31 it was difficult imagine how things could get any worse. We had Lewis stuck in the gravel with a broken wing and Valtteri out with a massive amount of damage. So, leaving here still in the lead of both championships is quite a relief and I suppose we should be grateful for that.


For Lewis it was very much a race of two halves. The early part was defined by the damage to the front wing after the contact with Max - that improved slightly when the footplate came away completely but we still had a chunk of load and balance missing. As such, we were a bit surprised when Lewis was able to close in on Max towards the end of the intermediate stint. The transition to dry was okay, warm-up was a challenge and I think we look worse than our competitors in this regard but as we didn't have time to change the wing it was always going to be a struggle to put Max under pressure. That became a bit of a moot point when Lewis slid off passing some traffic and lost a load of time and positions. The suspended race allowed us the chance to repair the car and in the final stint we saw what it was capable of. It was a great recovery by Lewis and an impressive fastest lap.


Valtteri's day was even more difficult. He was finding the warm-up more of a challenge than Lewis, struggling mainly with rear grip. That was the case on both inter and slick tyres but on the transition to dry it was particularly bad. He got swamped by a few cars and ultimately, that was what started the events that triggered the crash with George and the end of this race. Overall, a frustrating weekend and one where we have plenty of areas that we need to look to for improvement.

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "I am of course very happy with this win for everyone in the Team and Honda. I think the key was of course the start as we had a great launch. I surprised myself as it was always hard to get off the line in the wet last year but we worked hard to try and improve that and it worked. The conditions were challenging out there, especially in the beginning and it was very hard to stay on track but we stayed out of trouble. I wouldn't call it a dominant performance as Lewis was following me quite well and for him to come back to second after his incident means they have a lot of pace in that car. We won because we made the right calls with tyres at the right time and the Team managed everything well in these conditions. With the tyres degrading, choosing the right moment to go onto slicks wasn't easy but we got it right. I had a little moment at the re-start trying to warm up the tyres with some throttle but luckily we didn't spin. We still have to work hard to improve because it's very close, but for now I'm very happy with the result. I'm looking forward to Portimao because it's an amazing track and then we go to a track we all know well in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). We'll see what we can do but so far, it's been a good start to the year."

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "The conditions out there were really difficult today and I made quite a few mistakes that were very costly. I struggled to retain any temperature in the tyres, so I lost it under the safety car and I got a 10 second penalty. It is of course important that I get used to the car and that I learn these lessons, but I messed up, I'm very disappointed in myself and really sorry to the Team. I think at the re-start the podium was ours and the pace of the car was good today, we should have finished one and two on the podium. Let's focus on the next race now, we will work really hard as a Team and come back stronger."

Christian Horner: "It is fantastic for us to get the victory here today, particularly after losing such a close race in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). Max drove impeccably all afternoon with no mistakes and the Team made some perfectly timed pit stop calls, making this a thoroughly deserved victory and an important one for us. Max was pumped up for the race, with a great start giving him momentum down into Turn 1 where we saw two tough drivers pushing to the limit for track position which is what everyone wants to see. Lewis was still very quick today which could be seen particularly towards the end of the race when they seemed to have very low tyre degradation. I think they maybe had a quicker car than us today but it's great to get that first victory of the season under our belts. It was a real shame for Sergio after such a brilliant day yesterday and nothing went his way which is frustrating for him, but he's becoming more and more comfortable with the car and you can guarantee that he will come back strong. Now we need to build on this momentum for the remainder of the season and we are going to have to go some way to keep Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) under pressure."

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Obviously very happy to get a podium. A very well-executed race from the team and from myself. I think I drove very well - I made a lot of good decisions - but it wasn't easy. The beginning of the race was pretty tough. A bit of contact here and there, not a perfect start but I kept my head cool. I kept focused throughout because sometimes you know you've got to expect the red flags and the Safety Cars and think that more opportunities can come towards you later in the race. So, I kept that in mind and solidly came back through.

"There were a couple of people crashing and making mistakes ahead of me, which is what we're here to take advantage of, and then we made a good decision at the end to go onto the Soft tyres and get ahead of Leclerc. We almost held on to P2 but not quite. It was a tough race, but very rewarding for myself and more importantly for the team, so a big thanks to them for bringing new parts, and working so hard on the car back at the factory to make it better every weekend."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "One of those races where you've got rain on the laps to grid and you're not really sure how it's going to go. I managed to get a position at the start and was then running in fifth for a bit. Just as the track started to dry I grained the front right, so I couldn't really keep a good pace.


"For the restart, we put on the Soft tyre to make the most of a potential standing start. I tried to keep on top of the Soft until the end of this long stint but, just couldn't really manage it. I think both front and rear tyres I struggled with.


"So, certainly not an awesome race, but I think to come home sixth is good for the Constructors' points with Lando in third. Congrats to Lando, he had a great race and it's awesome to see the car has the pace. My race pace was nothing too special. I've just got to keep working on it and improve."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "An exciting race today and a great show for the fans. A podium for Lando is a great reward for the whole team, and the hard work that's gone in here at the track and back at the factory this weekend - but also for the effort over the winter to get us to this point from the team in Woking and our colleagues at Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes).

"Great call today to restart on the Soft tyre after the red flag. That gave us an edge and allowed Lando to take the place from Charles [Leclerc]. Lando was flying all weekend and managed a lot of tricky situations today in difficult conditions. He and his team managed brilliantly to get this well-deserved podium. Daniel did a great job too. He's not yet fully confident in the car - which is understandable - but he put in a clean race, made good decisions and scored a lot of points that will be valuable both for himself and for the team.


"After two strong weekends to start the season, we now have our sights set on keeping the momentum going in Portimao."

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - Aston MartinLance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "That was a lot of fun with some exciting racing. We have scored some important points and I really enjoyed myself today. The weather made things a little bit interesting and we made the most of it. All credit to the crew on the grid for getting my car repaired after the brake problem, too. We also overcame a gear shift issue, which cost us lap time, but we managed to hang on until the end. It was just a very busy afternoon with so much happening, so I am really pleased to have scored six points. The car was nicely balanced this weekend, but we still have some work to do to catch the teams ahead of us. That is where our focus is now as we get ready for Portugal."

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "Things did not go our way today. Even before the race, we had issues going to the grid and I had to start from the pit lane. That was not too painful because it was a wet start to the race, but the time penalty changed everything, especially because it came 20 minutes into the race. The track conditions were quite difficult in the beginning and it was hard to overtake, but a dry line soon appeared. We gambled on fitting the dry tyres early and, as the track dried more, there was a phase of the race where we were actually quite strong. Then there was the red flag, which was the right decision, and for the restart we chose to fit the soft tyres and gambled on a standing start happening, but they decided on a rolling start. Those soft tyres obviously had higher degradation compared to the medium, which made things more difficult at the end."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "After an Imola weekend that was challenging from a number of perspectives, Lance's hugely impressive drive to seventh place, under pressure all the way through, lifted the spirits of everyone in the team. He had gear shift issues throughout, but managed them very capably, and did very well to hold off a fast-closing Pierre [Gasly] on the final lap. Sebastian had a troubled run that ended in a DNF just one lap from the end, which was disappointing for him and the team, but he got a lot of very useful mileage in the car, which is a positive because he is still playing catch-up to some extent as a result of his lack of running in pre-season testing. Both our cars suffered brake overheating problems on the way to the grid, and we are currently investigating the root cause in order to implement a permanent solution."

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team scored its first championship point of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship after a challenging race, which led to Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) finishing tenth and Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) eleventh in an incident-filled Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

Teams were faced with a difficult decision before the start of the race after a sudden downpour of rain an hour before lights out left some parts of the circuit extremely wet. Esteban opted for the full Wet tyres with Fernando on the Intermediates. On the laps to the grid, Fernando ran wide out of Turn 7, clipping the wall, meaning he had to change front wing.


In slippery conditions, both drivers dropped outside of the top ten with Esteban switching to the Intermediates on lap two under the Safety Car.


Things began to stabilise and, as the track started to dry, dry tyres looked the best option; Esteban fitting Mediums on lap 27 and Fernando following suit a lap later.


Esteban switched to the Softs on lap 31, before a red flag brought the race to a stop following a collision between Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) and George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69464/drivers/66/george-russell) on the entry to turn two.


The race resumed with Fernando twelfth and Esteban thirteenth, the Frenchman switching to Mediums during the red flag stoppage, for the sprint to the end. Both drivers immediately gained a few places and duelled for the final points-scoring position.


Esteban was heaping the pressure on Kimi Räikkönen for ninth but could not make the breakthrough on the experienced Finn. Fernando was just behind as he looked to sneak his way into the points. At the flag, Esteban held onto tenth with Fernando narrowly adrift.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It was a challenging race today in hard conditions. There were lots of opportunities out there, we managed to score a point, a decent result and a good reward for the team's hard work. There was potentially more on the table. It was a long, physical race and flat out right until the end after the restart. I had some fun fights out there, especially with Fernando. Now, we look forward to the next race weekend."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was tricky today as we had several different conditions, starting the race in the wet and finishing in the dry. I took a lot of learnings after driving in these conditions again. In Formula 1, you don't get any preparation, and with one and a half days of testing it's not easy. Overall, I would say it was like four race experiences all in one. I think the car is better this weekend, which is positive but it's still very tight between a number of cars. We'll go again in Portugal."

Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director: "We scored our first point of the season today and we had to work hard for it. Both cars had poor starts in wet conditions and lost several positions on the first lap, which is something we need to understand. In the dry, our pace was pretty decent with both drivers together on the track and coming back towards the points positions. Esteban got stuck behind Räikkönen for the final part of the race and couldn't make the move, underlining how difficult it is to overtake here. We leave Imola with bittersweet feelings; pleased to have our first point of the season, but it was a race that didn't go as it could have for us. We move onto the next race hungry for more."

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - FerrariScuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow picked up 22 points, courtesy of a fourth place for Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and a fifth for Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) in the Gran Premio del Made in Italy e dell'Emilia-Romagna. While the race confirmed that the team is making progress, there's a hint of disappointment as undoubtedly, a podium finish was within Charles' grasp today.

The key moment of the race came when Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) and George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69466/drivers/66/george-russell) crashed at the first corner on lap 32, leading to the race being suspended. At the time, Charles was second, 25 seconds ahead of Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) in the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren). The Monegasque had built up that lead driving very quickly and precisely on a track that was gradually drying out, helped by set up choices made yesterday with the engineers in qualifying to run with more aerodynamic downforce. The restart wiped out Charles' advantage and he was then overtaken by Norris and, with a few laps remaining, by Hamilton too.


Sainz also had a very good race. The Spaniard got away very well from eleventh on the grid, making up several places. He then made a few mistakes in the early stages, but once the track conditions stabilised, Carlos was able to match the pace of the quickest, just like his team-mate, in both wet and dry conditions.


Therefore, Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) can leave Imola knowing that the work carried out on the SF21 has produced a definite step forward compared to last year's car. Furthermore, when compared to the race in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), the race pace at Imola matched what had been seen in qualifying, better than the closest rivals in the wet and similar in the dry.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): It was an interesting race, although a bit frustrating, because I was in a really good place before the red flag which wiped out the advantage we had built up in the first part of the race. Unfortunately, I struggled after the restart, since I was vulnerable in the straights and that made it difficult to fight or defend from others. In fact we had taken a bit of a gamble with some more downforce, which helped us in the rain, but made it more difficult for us when it was dry in the second part of the race.


Overall, I'm very happy with the performance we had today. There is definitely a lot of motivation. We are fighting for more interesting positions now and this is positive. We have been working well and if we keep it up, I'm sure that we will be fighting for the top places soon.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): That was a very solid race today. The conditions at the start were very tricky, with very poor visibility, but I went for it and managed to make up quite a lot of positions after the start. This was the second race and my first time in the wet with the car, which was an unknown situation for me, but taking risks and finding the limit paid off, despite losing race time with a couple of mistakes here and there.


My pace was very strong in the wet and also very solid in the dry, so I'm happy with that. I was quite comfortable all along, and starting P11 with a P5 finish is encouraging. I just need to keep my head down and continue working in this direction, because I think it's the correct one. Collecting solid points today was definitely good for the team and I am very pleased with the double points finish.


Mattia Binotto: On a completely different track and in very different conditions to the first race of the season, this result confirms that the work we are doing is going in the right direction. The fact we are unhappy about not getting at least one driver onto the podium is further proof of that. We can definitely say the outcome of these first two races is a positive one.


Not since the second half of 2019, specifically the races in Japan and Mexico that year, have we had both drivers in the points in two consecutive races. We must continue like this and show, race by race, that we know how to improve. Now I can't wait to go to Portimao for the next Grand Prix!

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauri

Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "For sure, it's been a rollercoaster of a day - we started from P5 but we made a different call with tyres at the start of the race and quickly ended up at the back. Obviously, I was very disappointed, but from there we kept fighting and after the red flag we managed to make our way forward again to cross the finish line in eighth position. Following the race, I've moved up into P7 and I'm pretty pleased with that as a finishing position - we managed to recover some crucial points for the team, which is really positive. We showed the potential of the car on Saturday and next time out we just need to put it all together across the whole weekend."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I think it was a fantastic race for the viewers at home but I'm very disappointed with myself and I just want to say sorry to the team. It's a real shame that I spun after the red flag, up until that point I think the race was going pretty well and the pace was really good. This was the first time I've been in a Formula 1 car in the wet and I learnt you have to be so careful, especially with acceleration. Starting on the intermediate tyre during the rainy conditions made it even more difficult but it was a great opportunity for me to understand more how the compounds work in different conditions. I think points could have been on the table for me here today but it's all a learning curve and I'll take this experience with me to the next race."

Jody Egginton (Technical Director): "Today's race was certainly eventful and - although we have scored a few points with Pierre - we have to be honest and say we have made our lives more difficult than they needed to be and have not scored the points that the package was capable of this weekend. Obviously, the entire team is disappointed but together we will review today's race, in an open and pragmatic way, and address various topics that will allow us to deliver a stronger performance at the next Grand Prix."

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - Alfa RomeoIt would have been such a good story. If ever there would have been a case of picking up where we had left off, the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix would have been it. Our final points of the 2020 season had been in Imola, and for a long time we thought our first points of 2021 would come in the same venue (thankfully a lot earlier in the season than last year).

A chaotic race, started on a wet but drying track with drizzle still falling in places saw Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) race for most of the day in or about the top ten, determined to get our team off the board for our current campaign on a day of opportunity. Making a good start in treacherous conditions, with spray bringing visibility down to a zero, both drivers raced in P13 and P14, keeping it clean in the opening stages where there was so much to lose.


A terrifying shunt between Bottas and Russell brought out a red flag, after which Kimi and Antonio restarted in P8 and P11. The Finn eventually settled in P9, but came under huge pressure by a train made up by Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon), Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) and Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) in the last 12 laps of the race: he had to call upon all his experience to keep them at bay until the chequered flag. What could have been a possible double-points finish was unfortunately nullified by a technical issue on Antonio's car when he was running line astern with his team-mate. The resulting pit stop placed him 14th at the chequered flag, robbing us of having two cars deservedly in the fight for the final two places in the points.


And then, hours after the race, came the cold shower we did not expect, with Kimi handed a 30-second penalty that takes away those two points we fought so hard for. The efforts of a weekend gone, we are left to reflect on the performance we were able to deliver. As predicted, the margins in this part of the field are small – today's result does hurt, but seeing us fight on track like that makes for some tasty encounters expected in the next races...

Today's decision leaves the team dumbfounded. Having already suffered an original disadvantage, with Kimi losing two places under the Safety Car, we were further hit by a disproportionate penalty, unfitting to the original fault, one we incurred by virtue of not endangering the other competitors by overtaking behind the Safety Car. It was a penalty which the stewards themselves struggled to reconcile themselves with, one within which they themselves saw contradictions. One that makes little sense from a sporting point of view. We, nevertheless, take this on the chin. We will use it to grow, and come back stronger. That is what teams do.


Frederic Vasseur: "Once again we demonstrated we have a car that can fight for points on a Sunday, even though we are left to rue not bringing home what would have been a very positive result. The conditions weren't easy and we did a good job as a team to be in the fight. Kimi needed all his experience to keep his rivals behind at the end of the race, while it was obviously very disappointing that a technical problem got Antonio out of a very good position when we were looking at having two cars in the top ten. This issue, and the penalty that took away our two points, aside, today's result gives us confidence for the next races, although it was another reminder of how small the margins are in the midfield and how we have to keep improving to keep ahead of the nearest rivals."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It was a good recovery after yesterday and to take points from P16 on the grid would have been a great story. The conditions were very tricky, the track was slippery and it never fully dried up – it was so easy to make a mistake. We made a good start but couldn't see anything in the spray; we did ok on the inters, they came back at the end of the stint but at that point the track was dry enough for slicks. We struggled a bit more after the red flag, but we were able to use the track layout to our advantage and keep everyone else behind to finish in P9. Unfortunately, we then got this penalty that means we don't get anything to show for it, but at least we can look positively at our performance.

We have been fighting for the points two races in a row, hopefully we can keep improving even more."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "We were having a fantastic race until our issue and it was a matter of finally being able to show our true race potential. The conditions at the beginning of the race were very difficult, they reminded me of Hockenheim 2019 with very poor visibility. Kimi and I were both running in the points and to finish with both cars in the top ten was definitely on the cards, but unfortunately we had a technical issue with one of the brakes that required a pit stop. I focus on the positives: we have a good car and we can fight for a top ten finish in most races. Hopefully luck will be more on our side in the future and we can get the rewards we deserve."

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team completed the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix with Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) 16th and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) 17th, held at the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), Italy, on Sunday.

Both drivers took the Pirelli Cinturato Blue full wet tires for the start of the 63-lap race owing to a downpour during the build-up that left the first sector of the circuit fully soaked. Schumacher gained two spots to hold 16th while Mazepin's VF-21 escaped unscathed after Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams)' Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) made contact along the backstraight. Schumacher was caught out by the conditions under the ensuing safety car period and spun into the wall along the main straight but was able to pit for repairs and re-joined the race on Green intermediates, one spot behind his team-mate. Mazepin came in on lap 14, following suit by taking on intermediates, and soon the track dried sufficiently for slicks. Schumacher stopped on lap 22 for Red soft tires while Mazepin boxed three laps later.


The race was halted on lap 33 owing to the debris left in the aftermath of a large collision between Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)' Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) and Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams)' George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69462/drivers/66/george-russell) into Tamburello. Both Schumacher and Mazepin took on Yellow medium tires for the rolling restart and retained position through to the checkered flag, with Schumacher 16th and Mazepin 17th, logging Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team's first double finish of the 2021 campaign.


Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing's Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) registered the 11th victory of his Formula 1 career, ahead of Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)' Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) and McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)'s Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris).


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "So much happened in this race, from starting on the wets having not really expected it as the sunshine wasn't long before the start, then a red flag and loads of things basically happening. We just weren't really fast enough today to fight with others. It was a good learning experience in the bag though and to see the checkered flag was good. I don't think Nicolas (Latifi) knew I was there when he came back across the track. I gave him all the room I had but I just don't think he was aware that I was there. I think it was just unfortunate for him. I don't think anyone had an easy one today, but I guess it was a very exciting race for the fans."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "It was my first time in a Formula 1 car in the wet conditions - it definitely wasn't easy. To be honest I wasn't quite sure what happened at the moment I spun, it went quite quickly. I don't know if I was too aggressive or if it was a puddle or whatever. It's something we'll analyze but I'm quite disappointed in myself. We'd had good position up until then. Overall, I think it was a positive race, we finished 16th and we were good in terms of pace. We saw the checkered flag and that was the goal."


Guenther Steiner: "We got two cars home in what was quite an eventful race with the changing weather conditions. There were a few things thrown our way again but ultimately, we recovered and finished the race with both Nikita (Mazepin) and Mick (Schumacher) at the checkered - which is good. That's what I always want, that we do the laps, and that the guys learn. I want them to keep improving and especially for Nikita, it was good today that he finished the race after missing out in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). He now has a complete race under his belt. Mick did well to recover from the earlier part of his race. As much as it's not the result that makes you happy, what makes you happy is that we made progress. That was our plan, and if we can continue to work like this - with less mistakes and more performance, that's what we're here for this year."

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - WilliamsIt was a difficult day for the team with both George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69468/drivers/66/george-russell) and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) failing to finish the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. The Brit started 12th and the Canadian 14th, both on the intermediate Pirelli tyre following rain shortly before lights out.

In tricky conditions Nicholas' race finished in the barrier on the straight after turn 13 following contact with Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin). After pitting for dry tyres on lap 26, George was having a strong race running in the points. However, an incident with Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) resulted in both crashing out on lap 32.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: It's extremely disappointing to be leaving Imola with neither car having finished the race. We have had a decent weekend throughout, and in tricky conditions today we made good and timely decisions. Although Nicholas found it a little difficult at the start on the Intermediate tyres, he was unfortunate to touch the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and crash out. George was good on the intermediate tyres and did a great job behind the safety car to keep the car in a good state. As we moved to slick tyres we were in a strong position and although there was still a long way to go, George was comfortable and managing his car and tyres well. We had the pace and speed to overtake Bottas, and had we been able to make the move cleanly we looked set for a strong finish.


We can take a lot of positives from this weekend as the car and drivers have performed well and have been backed up by some excellent work in the garage and in Grove. We missed a good opportunity to score points today, but we got ourselves into a good position on merit and with many races remaining in the season, we should be confident of getting another good opportunity soon.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69468/drivers/66/george-russell): I think it was a very unfortunate incident and one that could have been avoided. Valtteri was defending hard, and he is in his right to do so. The track was going left, and he was going straight. In these conditions with one dry line, it only had one outcome. It is frustrating but that is Formula One.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): In the end it was not the result we wanted, so that is frustrating from my side. It was my mistake in tricky conditions, even the laps to the grid were difficult and the spray was the worst I have ever seen it. I had the first spin off from a bit of rear locking and then I re-joined the track. I tried to stay on the left-hand side but naturally the driver line takes you back to the right, so I knew I couldn't just cut back across. I didn't see Mazepin when I joined the track but looking at the replay, I have seen we made contact and that sent me into the wall. It was an unfortunate end to the weekend as it was my mistake, so I'm really sorry to the team for that.

Emilia Romagna GP: Race team notes - PirelliThe thrilling Imola race, with Pirelli as title sponsor, was interrupted by a red flag after 34 laps to clean debris off the track following an accident. The red flag allowed teams to service the cars and change tyres, meaning that the final part of the race was a 29-lap sprint.

Rain before the start of the race meant that nearly all the cars started on Cinturato Green intermediates, with just four on the Cinturato Blue full wet. There were two safety cars before the red flag, which occurred when the track was almost dry. During the second safety car period all the runners moved onto slick tyres. Everyone selected P Zero Yellow mediums once the crossover point was reached, apart from Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas), which went onto the P Zero Red softs.


Verstappen took the lead at the first corner of lap one from Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton), who had started from pole. Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) driver started from the head of the field following the re-start on the medium tyre and held onto his advantage until the end. He then maintained the lead after stopping before Hamilton for P Zero Yellow medium slicks.

Hamilton finished second following a fantastic fightback and claimed the extra championship point for fastest lap, despite being a lap down before the re-start after going off the track. McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)'s Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) was third, using the P Zero Red soft for the final stint.


The combination of rain, safety cars and red flags meant that strategies were a question of reacting to rapidly changing circumstances. Most drivers followed a broadly similar run plan though: starting on Cinturato Green intermediates and then switching to P Zero Yellow mediums from just before the red flag all the way to the end of the race.

Mario Isola: "We had a red flag that split the race into two distinct parts following an incident that underlined the difficulty of Imola, which was made even more complicated by the uncertain and cool weather. With no previous running on the intermediate and wet tyres over the weekend, teams had to work out the crossover points as they went along. But a clear dry line emerged, with Verstappen and Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) timing their stop perfectly to move ahead of Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) in the pits. Once the race was re-started after the red flag, most of the drivers used the medium tyres, which provided a good balance between performance and durability throughout the significant portion of the race that was dry. However, a number of the frontrunners - including Norris on the podium - switched to the soft for the re-start, which also performed strongly in the final run to the finish of a memorable race, where we were honoured to be title sponsor".

Este año Verstappen se los come a todos. El año pasado fue mala suerte pero esta vez se le ve muy fuerte. Alonso puede llegar hast sexto o quien sabe su experiencia tiene mucho valor en Imola


Si la cosa sigue así, tendremos duelos interesantes entre Verstappen y Hamilton. Y si Checo se pone a tono pronto e «incordia» a Hamilton, nos vamos a divertir. :sisi1:

Una pena que no acertaras con lo de Alonso. :triste2: El coche no es que esté para tirar cohetes pero a Fernando no se le ha visto bien en todo el fin de semana. A ver qué tal se le da Portimao.

N. Carpentiers, nos muestra algunas de las novedades que ha visto durante este GP:

La technique à Imola : le club des “Z” s’agrandit







Le Grand Prix d’Émilie-Romagne n’était que la deuxième course du championnat, mais déjà se dessine une tendance technique, qui a convaincu les trois quarts de la grille, Ferrari et Williams étant les derniers convertis. Également au menu de cette galerie technique le nouveau diffuseur de Mercedes et l’important package d’Alpine, introduit…tardivement.

https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/04/f1-technique-imola_ferrari-fond-plat.jpg



FERRARI ET WILLIAMS REJOIGNENT LE CLUB C’est toujours la même histoire.


En Formule 1, les solutions imaginées par les ingénieurs sont assez différentes au début d’un nouveau cycle réglementaire, puis elles finissent petit à petit par converger vers le dessin optimal.
Ainsi les entrées d’air rehaussées introduites en 2017 par Ferrari ont-elles fini par être adoptées par toutes les écuries. De même, les déflecteurs latéraux (ou “bargeboards”) ultra découpés introduits par Mercedes ont fait florès dans tout le paddock.


Cette année, la convergence s’opère relativement tôt, dès la deuxième course, tôt et concerne le fond plat, ce qui n’est guère étonnant puisqu’il s’agit de la seule partie modifiée par le règlement technique cette saison.


À Imola, Ferrari et Williams ont suivi la tendance et adopté une découpe en “Z” du fond plat, portant du coup à sept le nombre d’écuries ayant retenu ce dessin.


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/04/f1-technique-imola_williams-fond-plat.jpg

DE QUOI S’AGIT-IL ? On le sait, les nouvelles dimensions du diffuseur et du soubassement imposées par le règlement technique (découpe du fond plat, réduction des déflecteurs dans le diffuseur, diminution des ailettes attachées aux écopes de frein arrière (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/reglement-technique-f1-2021-explique/3/)) visaient à réduire l’appui d’environ 10 %. Toucher à cette zone, même très légèrement, produit de grands effets sur une F1, puisque le soubassement et le diffuseur génèrent à eux seuls près de 60 % de l’appui total d’une Formule 1 (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/secrets-diffuseur-formule-1/).


L’un de ces changements a contraint les aérodynamiciens à retirer du fond plat une zone triangulaire. La pointe la plus aigüe de ce triangle rectangle doit débuter 180 cm en arrière de l’axe des roues avant. Large de 10 cm, la base de ce triangle doit quant à elle commencer 17,5 cm en avant de l’axe des roues arrière.


L’intention de la FIA était que le côté le plus long de ce triangle soit une ligne droite sans cassure. C’est ce dessin – fidèle à l’intention de la Fédération et marqué ci-dessous par un triangle bleu – que l’on trouve sur la McLaren, l’Alfa Romeo et la Haas.


Les sept autres écuries, dont Mercedes et Red Bull, ont retiré un second triangle, plus petit, indiqué ci-dessous en jaune. Du fait de cette découpe supplémentaire, le bord du fond plat présente une cassure en forme de “Z”.


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/04/f1-technique-imola_fond-plat-z.jpg

À QUOI ÇA SERT ? Les équipes qui ont réalisé cette deuxième découpe l’ont fait pour que le bord du fond plat soit de nouveau parallèle à l’axe longitudinal de la voiture, comme c’était le cas auparavant.


Même si cette découpe additionnelle diminue encore la surface du fond plat, elle est privilégiée par la majorité des écuries. Sans doute n’étaient-elles pas satisfaites de la manière dont un bord effilé (c’est-à-dire non parallèle) affectait l’écoulement du flux d’air à l’arrière.


À l’exception notable de la Mercedes, les sept monoplaces concernées possèdent un déflecteur vertical placé dans le coin droit du triangle jaune (voyez les flèches blanches ci-dessus). Cette pièce va générer de petits vortex le long du fond plat afin d’aider à fermer les bords du soubassement. Ils produisent une sorte de paroi, dans l’esprit des jupes des années 1970, qui empêche que n’entrent les turbulences causées par la rotation des roues arrière.


Les sept équipes n’ont pas toutes suivi exactement le même dessin. Red Bull, par exemple, a retiré une plus grande portion que Mercedes. Si elle est de plus en plus répandue, cette découpe en “Z” ne constitue pas pour autant la panacée, comme l’atteste la compétitivité de la McLaren (dont le diffuseur est unique).
(*) Sur l’image ci-dessus, on peut noter que l’AlphaTauri a ajouté à Imola cinq déflecteurs avant le déflecteur placé dans le coin de la découpe. L’écurie a aussi introduit de nouveaux bargeboards.
https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/04/f1-technique-imola_mercedes-diffuseur.jpg

MERCEDES EN PROGRÈS Les progrès de Mercedes en Italie montrent combien il est hasardeux de tirer des conclusions après une seule course. Alors qu’elle accusait un retard de près de quatre dixièmes de seconde sur la Red Bull à Sakhir, la W12 a signé la pole position à Imola.


Est-elle pour autant la meilleure machine du plateau ? Sans doute pas. La Mercedes reste plus pénalisée par son assiette plate (“low rake”) (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-features/analyse/red-bull-a-rattrape-mercedes/) que les monoplaces à assiette relevée. Ses progrès ce week-end tiennent surtout au fait que le tracé d’Imola convient mieux à la Mercedes. Et la pole de Lewis Hamilton s’explique aussi par les erreurs de Max Verstappen et de Sergio Pérez.


Les possibilités de développement étant limitées (impossible de retoucher la suspension ou tout autre pièce mécanique), les ingénieurs de Brackley ne peuvent jouer que sur les réglages de la voiture (les paramètres de la mise au point en Formule 1 sont nombreux et expliqués ici (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique/mise-point-formule-1-lequilibre/)) et sur les évolutions aérodynamiques, qui ne sont pas encadrées (même si les budgets plafonnés et les quotas de temps en soufflerie entrent en ligne de compte).


Après Bahreïn, Valtteri Bottas a passé beaucoup de temps dans le simulateur à Brackley afin de balayer toute une série de réglages : “J’ai arrêté de compter combien de réglages nous avons essayé dans le simulateur ! Mais nous sommes arrivés à Imola avec une bonne boîte à outils pour mettre au point la voiture.”



En parallèle, la W12 a reçu un nouveau diffuseur, légèrement retouché au niveau du deuxième déflecteur vertical. La nouvelle version ne comporte plus de découpe, comme on le voit en comparant les flèches jaunes.


Favoriser l’expansion latérale du flux d’air est l’un des rôles que jouent les déflecteurs verticaux (ou “strakes”) placés à l’intérieur du diffuseur, dont les secrets sont dévoilés ici (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/secrets-diffuseur-formule-1/). Leur rôle ? Produire une série de vortex pour maintenir le flux d’air attaché.


Par sa forme, un diffuseur produit deux gros vortex sur ses côtés. En ajoutant des déflecteurs à l’intérieur, les aérodynamiciens ont remarqué que ces panneaux verticaux, souvent courbés, généraient d’autres vortex, plus petits mais qui amélioraient tout de même le fonctionnement du diffuseur en énergisant le flux d’air qui, de ce fait, avait moins tendance à se détacher.


C’est ce qui explique la multiplication des déflecteurs verticaux (ou “strakes”) à l’intérieur des diffuseurs ces dernières années. Jusqu’à 2020, ils pouvaient descendre jusqu’au niveau du fond plat. Cette saison, par contre, ils ne peuvent pas faire plus de 5 cm de hauteur (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/reglement-technique-f1-2021-explique/3/).


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/04/f1-technique-imola_alpine-aileron.jpg

ALPINE À LA RECHERCHE DU TEMPS PERDU Que l’écurie Alpine introduise de nombreuses nouveautés aussi tôt dans la saison (après seulement une course) est un brin surprenant.


Ce étrange calendrier se comprend mieux quand on sait que le développement aérodynamique du châssis A521 a été ralenti cet hiver par des problèmes affectant la soufflerie d’Enstone (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-features/enquete-magazine-features/usine-f1-visite-chez-renault-a-enstone-soufflerie/), comme l’a révélé Marcin Budkowski le week-end dernier :


“En allant aux tests de Bahreïn, nous savions que nous avions subi des vents contraires pendant l’hiver, dus aux changements réglementaires, bien sûr, mais aussi à des problèmes de soufflerie, qui nous ont ralentis en termes de développement. Nous n’avons pas eu la meilleure intersaison, et cela nous a mis en position de faiblesse. Nous avons apporté pas mal de nouveautés ici, mais il en faudra encore d’ici les prochaines courses pour être là où nous voulons être.”



Parmi les nouvelles pièces figure un nouvel aileron, qui est en réalité le véritable modèle 2021. La version précédente, utilisée à Bahreïn pour les tests et le Grand Prix, était une version de l’année passée.


Sur le nouvel aileron, le plan principal est beaucoup plus plat (comparez les traits rouges), alors que les dérives latérales ont perdu leur découpe carrée (flèches vertes). L’extrémité intérieure des volets (flèches jaunes) a été complètement remodelée, afin d’orienter différemment le fameux vortex Y250 (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/cape-sest-imposee-f1/2/).


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/04/f1-technique-imola_alpine-cape.jpg

Pièce emblématique des F1 actuelles (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/cape-sest-imposee-f1/2/), la cape a également été modifiée au niveau de l’entrée d’air du S-duct (astucieux système expliqué ici (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-but-dun-s-duct/)) et du bord de la cape, désormais doublé par un long volet soutenu par une pièce métallique (flèches rouges).


Il est curieux de constater que cette cape et le nouvel aileron figuraient sur les illustrations fournies au moment du lancement de l’A521, preuve que ces images peuvent parfois être fidèles… voire prospectives !



https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/04/f1-technique-imola_mclaren-fond-plat.jpg

McLAREN, À FOND (PLAT) McLaren, l’une des trois formations à ne pas avoir adopté un fond plat avec une découpe en forme de “Z”, est montée sur le podium en Émilie-Romagne, grâce à au brio de Lando Norris. Preuve qu’il n’y a pas de recette miracle, et que l’on peut obtenir de bons résultats par différents moyens.
À Imola, c’est la zone du fond plat située juste devant les roues arrière qui a été retouchée. Ce qui n’est pas une surprise, le règlement 2021 ayant modifié considérablement l’écoulement du flux d’air dans cette zone. En début de cycle réglementaire, les écuries trouvent des gains significatifs et multiplient dès lors les nouvelles pièces.


Sur la McLaren de Norris et Ricciardo, le long déflecteur unique a laissé place à trois éléments séparés (flèches rouges). De manière générale, les aérodynamiciens découpent les pièces pour éviter que l’air ne s’écoule sur des surfaces trop longues et perde ainsi de l’énergie (voire se détache de la surface), mais aussi afin de gérer des vortex, qui vont contribuer à énergiser le flux d’air.


Les trois éléments visibles sur l’image ci-dessus servent tous, à leur manière, à dévier le flux d’air et à produire de petits tourbillons en vue de contrecarrer les turbulences provoquées par la rotation des roues arrière (le fameux “tyre squirt” (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/4/)).


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-a-imola-club-z-sagrandit/5/

ASTON MARTIN : VERT, J’ESPÈRE Pénalisée comme Mercedes par son concept aérodynamique “low rake” à Bahreïn (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-galerie-grand-prix-de-bahrein-2/2/), Aston Martin a un peu relevé la tête à Imola (elle avait la septième voiture la plus rapide), sur un tracé qui lui convenait mieux.


L’équipe a introduit en Italie quelques évolutions qui ne concernent pas le fond plat ni le diffuseur, et qui étaient sans doute planifiées depuis quelque temps. Le support des rétroviseurs a été remanié (flèches rouges et jaunes), au point que l’entrée d’air des pontons a été rabotée (flèches bleues).
Un aileron plus adapté aux grandes courbes rapides a également été installé sur le bolide vert de Lance Stroll et Sebastian Vettel.

Parece que el motor de Bottas sobrevivió al golpe con Russell.

First inspection at Mercedes HPP suggests the Power Unit in Valtteri Bottas car has survived the big crash at Imola. He will likely get a new monocoque for the next race at Portimao even if the one he ran at Imola seems to be reusable after some minor fixes.

A Ricciardo le está costando y parece que Lando sigue al nivel de la última carrera de la temporada pasada, veremos si entro de unas carreras sigue la misma tónica.

Alfa Romeo lose appeal over Raikkonen Imola penalty

https://www.formula1.com/content/dam/fom-website/Upgrade/ImolaManualAdds/Sunday/GettyImages-1313121211.jpg.transform/9col/image.jpg


Alfa Romeo have lost their appeal over the 30-second race penalty (https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.alonso-scores-first-point-of-f1-comeback-after-post-race-penalty-drops.47DGShuslfdtb5MeE3pBtw.html) handed to Kimi Raikkonen after the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, which saw Raikkonen dropped from P9 out of the points to P13 – with the stewards upholding the penalty while accepting that there had been “no precedence” for it.

An error at Tamburello while lapping behind the Safety Car ahead of the post-red flag rolling restart at Imola saw Raikkonen fall from P7 to P10. The Finn then climbed up to P8 when the race got under way – but because he hadn’t made it all the way back to his original position, Raikkonen was then obliged to drive through the pit lane, rather than taking the rolling start out of position with the rest of the pack, the factor which ultimately led to the penalty.

And although the stewards, after being petitioned by Alfa Romeo to review the penalty, sympathised with the technical nature of the rule, the decision was taken to uphold the original penalty.
Explaining their decision, the stewards wrote: “[Article] 42.6 of the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations indicates that a driver may pass to regain his starting position including (and importantly in this case) ‘during the lap(s) behind the Safety Car’ and if he fails to regain his position before SC1 he must enter the pit lane and start from the pits. Failure to do this incurs a mandatory penalty of a 10-second stop and go penalty.

Raikkonen was obliged to drive through the pit lane after not getting back to his original position. “Since 2018 there has been no precedence for the circumstance that the driver Raikkonen was in. In the stewards’ original decision, we stated that ‘The rule requiring a car to enter the pit lane if it fails to regain its position is consistent amongst several championships, has been in the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations for several years and has been consistently applied.’ All of this is correct, except that the stewards recognise that there has been no precedence.

“The stewards accept the Competitor’s position that the rules probably do not match the original intent. But they have been in the regulations since 2018. Where there is ambiguity, the benefit of the doubt should accrue to the Competitor… [but] while the stewards understand why the Competitor acted as they did – first to tell the driver to re-take his position, then later to tell him not to re-take the position – the stewards stand by their original decision that the Competitor committed a breach of Art. 42.6 by failing to re-establish his starting position during the lap behind the Safety Car.”
A short statement from Alfa Romeo, meanwhile, said that the team accepted the outcome from the stewards, with the team writing: “Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN acknowledges the decision of the FIA and the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix stewards to uphold the original penalty to driver Kimi Raikkonen, following a review of the incident. The team’s focus is now fully on next weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix.”
