Like all sports competitions, the Formula 1 World Championship is going through a season of upheaval. Its organizers had planned for 2020 a record number of 22 Grands Prix, including an unprecedented race in Vietnam and a return to the Netherlands after years of absence. The pandemic forced them to rethink their ambitions, with fewer trials (17) and refocused debates in Europe (before an impromptu final between Turkey, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi).
But the chaotic situation did not prevent them from including in the program a surprise that looked like a birthday present for the scuderia Ferrari: a very first Grand Prix of Tuscany contested on “his” Mugello circuit, which will also – and above all – be his 1000th in F1. The start will be given on Sunday at 3 p.m.
