Yuki Tsunoda has given a helping hand to the Emilia Romagna flood relief efforts after the cancellation of this weekend's Grand Prix at Imola.

The race was called off after talks between F1, the FIA and local authorities with the Italian region hit by intense rainfall, with flooding and landslides wreaking havoc.

Tsunoda's AlphaTauri teammate Nyck de Vries revealed he had been left stranded in a rural village en route to the team's base in Faenza, such was the gravity of the situation as flood waters cut off road networks.

Writing on Twitter, Tsunoda said: "After a horrible night the town is heavily impacted: dust, mud, and the smell of gasoline everywhere.

"Currently people are struggling to find food and especially places to stay after many have been evacuated from their own homes."

The Japanese driver has since been spotted assisting local authorities in cleaning up the streets in Faenza, having moved from Milton Keynes in 2021.
