Arrow F1: Italian GP '20 (Imola)

never been one of my favorite tracks i guess mostly because of Senna's accident.. but looking forward to see how recent F1 cars will tackle with the track..

last pole lap by Schumi from 2006..



there will one practice session this weekend..
just like in previous race weekend but intentionally this time as shown in the program..

The terrifying Tamburello of the old Imola was cursed. Not only it claimed Senna's life. Also, Patrese, Piquet and Berger had insane accidents in that corner.

Warwick said his right rear suspension failed and some say the front wing fell off under the wheels.Whatever he was extremely lucky to survive hitting the wall at similar speed as to what Senna did 5 years later.

^ There's no track action at all today, hence the practice has been squeezed into a single 90 minute session tomorrow.

Thanks.

The engineers will have less data which should make things less predictable.

Max has split the Mercs at the end of the single practice session with Seb up to 12th after languishing in 20th. Max is very close to HAM so roll on the quali.

Both RB's are safe for Q3,again World Champ work by Max's crew in getting him back with time to spare. Poor Seb didn't make it as he exceeded track limits and remains P14.

Bottas made a better job today but as Lewis said except the straight overtaking probably will be hard tomorrow..

Red Bull made a great job again.. shows how team work is really important.. Albon is not that behind this time i hope he ll have a nice race tomorrow and score some points to take some pressure off from him..

Gap is + 0.5 sec . Tomorrow the race will be already over in 10 laps with a gap of +/- 5-7 sec.

Merc vs Merc race . Same old story !

Is BOT the GOAT today ?

How can this be ?

Simple. Today BOT performed better than HAM. He drove better today. Kudos to him.
