EMILIA ROMAGNA FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX 2022
The 4th Round of the 2022 Formula 1 Season kicks off today in Emilia Romagna with the Emilia Romagna F1 Grand Prix!
The Rolex Gran Premio Del Made in Italy E Dell’ Emilia-Romagna 2022 takes place over 63 laps of the 4.909-kilometre Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, surrounded by stunning views of the Tuscan hills to the South, the Adriatic beaches to the East and the gastronomic delights of cities like Bologna, Parma and Modena to the West.
Commonly known as Imola and the former home of the San Marino Grand Prix, this track is one of the few major international circuits to run in an anti-clockwise direction and is named after Ferrari’s late founder Enzo Ferrari and his son Alfredo Ferrari.
