Relevant News Regarding the Tuscan Grand Prix
Pierre Gasly putting himself on the F1 Grid and the return to Red Bull?
Last week’s Grand Prix in Monza was the most unpredictable race of this season, where almost everyone exceeded expectations. Pierre Gasly delivered an extraordinary drive together with Carlos Sainz and Lance Stroll which made the third youngest podium in F1 history!
Gasly has had a career of many difficulties with being called up for Toro Rosso in 2017, then stepping up to Red Bull to replace Daniel Ricciardo in 2019, and unfortunately being demoted back to Toro Rosso just mid-season after displaying a dissatisfied performance for Red Bull.
After securing his first podium in Brazil 2019 and then his first spectacular win last weekend, would this be the right time to return to the senior team and prove to Red Bull that he is worthy? Mugello F1 will be his chance.
Ferrari goes from bad to worse…
Ferrari will become the first F1 team to have its 1,000th race at the Tuscan Grand Prix since their championship debut back in 1950 and will therefore have their cars painted in a darker shade of red to match the original design in 1950. Ferrari owns the Mugello F1 circuit and will be eager to return to the podium after an atrocious performance last weekend after both cars had to retire in the first half of the race because of a high-speed crash and break issue. Mattia Binotto shares his thoughts about the team and this week at Mugello:
“It is a different type of circuit compared to Spa and Monza, so I think it will be important for us to understand our level of competitiveness at such a circuit”
Hamilton’s careless mistake
Lewis Hamilton was undoubtedly the favourite to win the race at Monza, and he built up a substantial advantage in the race’s early stages. However, his decision to pit was ultimately proven to be a mistake as he did not recognise the warning lights which resulted in a 10-second penalty. Hamilton finished the race before reaching seventh, but none of his competitors like Bottas and Verstappen have surpassed him during the race. Even though many consider Hamilton favourite winning at Mugello F1, the last week proves that even the very best make mistakes and that one single error can affect outcome of a race.
Mexican Driver Sergio Perez will leave Racing Point after 7 years with the Silverstone-based team. Further news speculated that four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel will join Racing Point from Ferrari next season after Ferrari announced that Vettel will be replaced by McLaren driver Carlos Sainz next season.
Weather Forecast for Mugello F1
