During the first European race of the season, the F1 teams usually introduce a lot of updates to their cars. This year’s race in Imola is that first race, but the teams and drivers will also be presented with a separate format this weekend.

After all, during the race weekend of the GP of Emilia-Romagna, there is a sprint race on Saturday, which means that the drivers have only one practice session on Friday to prepare for qualifying, which also takes place on Friday.

An additional challenge is that it is raining in Imola, which makes it even more difficult for the teams to evaluate the new updates. Due to the rain we also saw a lot of sliders and spins among the drivers.

Ferrari again performed very strongly during its ‘home race’. Who can keep Ferrari from another pole position and victory?

Just before the end of the only practice session in preparation for qualifying, we got another red flag after Lando Norris in the McLaren ended up in the gravel. Fortunately Norris got out of the gravel again and we got a green flag again.

However, we also saw Valtteri Bottas slide through the gravel up to the tire wall. So many incidents during the practice session and that makes the preparation for qualifying even more difficult.

We eventually find Ferrari with both cars at the very top, followed by both Red Bulls. Mercedes performed very poorly with a tenth time for George Russell and only an eighteenth time for Lewis Hamilton.
