    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.

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Muchas gracias, McH.

    Ganas de ver este GP de nombre extralargo. Me toca perderme lo libres 1, pero no me perderé el resto. Por cierto, pensaba que las carreras volvían a las 14 hs. Menos mal que pones los horarios.

    Algunas previas de los equipos:

    Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - McLaren

    Lando Norris: "We've started the season with a good team result in Bahrain. 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: "I'm looking forward to getting back in the car after a positive start in Bahrain. 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 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, 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 Martin

    Following a three-week break, the FIA Formula One World Championship bursts back into life at Italy's historic Autodromo Enzo e Dino 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: "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, 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: "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: 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'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.


    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 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 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 Romeo

    Dimidium 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 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: "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 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: "What we saw in Bahrain 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 - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly: "Apart from the collision with Daniel, the Bahrain 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, 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 and 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: "I very much enjoyed my first experience of a Formula 1 race weekend in Bahrain and now I'm looking forward to the second one in Imola. There was not so much that surprised me about Bahrain, 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, 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.


    "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. 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, 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 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."

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - Haas

    Uralkali Haas F1 Team is heading to Italy, and to the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino 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, 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 and 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 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 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 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 and 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 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 - what specifically stands out as a key learning you can take from that event and apply moving forward?

    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 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 - what specifically stands out as a key learning you can take from that event and apply moving forward?

    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 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 Bull

    Red Bull drivers, Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen look ahead to this weekend's Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

    The Bahrain Grand Prix was an eventful race weekend. How do you look back on it?


    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 in the race. Just how close is the fight with them?


    SP:
    I think it's going to be very tight with 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, 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, 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
    :
    Of course, the race in Bahrain 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 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, 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 - Alpine

    The 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?

    Marcin Budkowski: We left Bahrain feeling disappointed by not scoring points. The Bahrain 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 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
    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
    :
    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, 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, 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 two weeks ago, 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
    :
    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! 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. It should be pretty close and a few tenths of a second could make up a number of positions.

    Emilia Romagna GP: Preview - Pirelli

    Once 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 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 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 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 plus one wet session at Jerez.

    Mario Isola:
    "After an exciting start in Bahrain, 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). 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. 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.

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    "Alonso has been brilliant all weekend, absolutely brilliant". "A driver not always easyto love, but very easy to admire".
