The performances of Verstappen & co can be followed here this weekend. For example, our reporter Erik van Haren is on site and provides the most important live updates during qualifying and race. First there is a free practice on the program on Saturday morning, and that is also the only free practice. The race weekend in Italy is one day shorter than normal.
The weekend at the classic Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, the infamous circuit where Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger died in 1994, has not become shorter for Verstappen himself, although he does not have to get into his RB16 until Saturday and the media day from Thursday to Friday was rescheduled. Verstappen took it on the safe side. He was tested at home in Monaco on Wednesday and again on the circuit on Thursday.
The FIA motorsport federation has tightened up the corona protocol around Formula 1. All those involved, so drivers and, for example, the media, had to have themselves tested twice in quick succession. First within 96 hours before arrival at a circuit and then within 24 hours after arrival. The free practice starts on Saturday at 10 a.m., followed by the qualification at 2 p.m. The Grand Prix of Emilia-Romagna will finally be held on Sunday at 1.10 p.m.
