    2020 Tuscan GP - Mugello





    We come to the first F1 race ever at Mugello, behind a sensational Monza race that presented the F1 world with a new F1 race winner in Pierre Gasly. On a Monza weekend where Hamilton was faced with some bad luck, his rivals failed to capitalized on it. Monza was a race that Bottas needed to win to re-establish himself as a realistic contender for the 2020 drivers title.

    Equally, this was a race that Verstapenn need to win to close the gap right up to Hamilton, which would have spiced up the season. We go into Mugello with Hamilton still comfortably in the lead and Bottas back in second.


    Mugello is Ferrari's test track normally. And this race marks Ferrari's 1000th race celebration, unfortunately in a season where Ferrari is faced with some adversity. This track is new to all the drivers on the grid with exception to Vettel, Raikonen, Leclerc and Giovinazzi. Hence it is interesting to see how the Mercedes fair on Ferrari's test track.

    Mercedes and Redbull would be seeking to bounce back from a poor Monza weekend. Hence, this weekend presents Bottas and Verstapenn a great opportunity to give Hamilton a hard time. This is a historic race as the winner of this race shall be the first and only driver to ever win a F1 race on this track; as this track is not on future F1 calendars.

    That's not true. F1 last held a test there in 2012, where Grosjean, Bottas, Ricciardo & Perez participated, so they know the track as well..

    Well Bottas blew his chances at P1 because he was too slow in his final out lap and let numerous cars go bye him. Smh

    Good job Perez. Faster than stroll even though he doesnít have the new aero parts. Happy with p5 for Leclerc

    Lance didn't get his final run in because of the yellow flag .
    Perez did .

    Perez was ahead from the first run anyway. With the upgrades he should have been 3-4 tenths up the road consistently. Lance has no business on this grid. Little Daddy boy he is that has never been worthy of a seat in F1.

    Yeah, l heard there were Pirelli tyre tests at Mugello a few years back. This explains why Bottas had the edge over Hamilton all the way up to Q3.

    This is a trully great track. It has got everything, slow corners, fast curves, a fast straight and steep inclines. It is a racers track like spa and l bet the drivers love it.

    This is the first track this season to let fans into the granstand. The ticket price must have been stupendious.

    Redbull did a great job for Albon so far this weekend. Albon fourth and right behind Verstapenn is a great showing by Redbull.

    Stroll was caught out by the Ocon yellow flag. He did not get a chance to have a run, much like it deprived Bottas from another go at pole. With the upgrades, chances are Stroll would have been ahead.

    Hmm I think this incident was kimiís fault. His car was out of sorts and steered into Gasly which then cascaded to other drivers
