After having continuously hosted Formula 1 from 1980 to 2006, theAutodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari of Imola he had known a long period of inactivity in the premier category of motoring. But in 2020 it is back on the calendar, thanks to the disruption of the scheduled dates due to the Cornavirus pandemic, and has received unanimous appreciation for the beauty of the track from both the drivers and the professionals.
And so it was also natural for 2021 to return to Emilia Romagna and the two recently held editions recorded the victories of the two great rivals, Lewis Hamilton on Mercedes and Max Verstappen on Red Bull Honda. But fans may soon receive good news also for the next seasons, as revealed in Rest of the Carlino by the president of the region, Stefano Bonaccini: “Think of Imola and Formula 1, what it would have been like with the public. We hope to bring home the Formula 1 world championship for a few years – maybe three – and with it the vaccinated public “.
The words of the Modenese politician are quite clear: “I’m waiting for them to call me to make the agreement for the next few years “. The Bolognese newspaper also goes so far as to hypothesize the figures, 20-23 million a year, without finding the bank in Bonaccini, who wanted to thank the Foreign Minister – and Formula 1 enthusiast – Luigi Di Maio for his interest: “Not everyone is as attentive as he is: I myself had prejudices, but I understand that he wants to reconfirm the millions of euros every year for the next few years. He wants F1 to stay in Imola for other years, because the Grand Prix is dedicated to Made in Italy, not just Emilia-Romagna”Concluded the Democratic Party politician.
