After heading stateside to Miami, the 2023 F1 season now returns to Europe for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen arrives into the weekend with a 14-point lead over teammate Sergio Perez in the World Championship standings, having also claimed victory last time out at the Miami International Autodrome.
The Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari – better known as Imola – was the venue of a Verstappen win in 2022, but can the Red Bull driver repeat that success this time around?
The weekend will follow the usual format, with two practice sessions taking place on Friday. FP1 is scheduled for 12:30 UK time, with FP2 following at 16:00.
On Saturday, FP3 will be held at 11:30 UK time, ahead of qualifying
at 15:00. This will determine the grid for Sunday's 63-lap Emilia Romagna Grand
Prix, which starts at 14:00.
