Imola set for new four-year F1 deal

The regional administration of Emilia-Romagna claims it has agreed terms for Formula 1 to return to the Imola circuit in a new, four-year deal.

A €20 million annual package jointly funded by national and regional governments, plus the Automobile Club of Italy, has been agreed to keep Italy’s second F1 race on the calendar until 2025. F1 returned to Imola last year following a 14-year absence, prior to which the track had held a grand prix every year since 1980.

The race’s return on the 2022 F1 calendar it expected to come at the expense of the Paul Ricard circuit in France. It will continue to hold the official title of “Gran Premio del Made in Italy e dell’Emilia-Romagna”.

Lance Stroll says that there are no problems between himself and team mate Sebastian Vettel following their late-race contact in the Russian Grand Prix.

“It was all fine after the race,” said Stroll. “I mean fortunately, nothing happened. Conditions were tricky.

“I was looking at the apex of turn 10 and Sebastian came alongside and I didn’t expect him there. I think it was just one of those moments, tricky conditions, things like that can happen. But nothing happened in the end, there was no no damage done.”

Latifi gets confidence boost from improved Williams form

Nicholas Latifi says Williams’ improved performance has boosted his confidence.

“I definitely think there’s some positive momentum from the consistency,” said Latifi. “I feel I’ve been finding in the performances, even stemming back to the races before, the pace and the performance was there to even get in many more Q2s before this streak that I’ve put together.

“So I’m definitely gaining, from the few races spanning back before the summer break, some confidence that the performance is more consistently there.”
