2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix Race Preview
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 on Imola’s challenge…
“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 previews Imola…
“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.”
