Updated: Oct 11
Formula-1 is on Tuscany and Ferrari celebrates their 1000th GP!
Racing on Mugello
Formula-1 is on Mugello for this Sunday race, the first time we will see a race on this track owned by Ferrari, their private circuit has been used for testing many times in the past, specially during the Schumacher era, but it is not an unknown track, as it is often used by other motor sports, such as Motorbikes.
For this race in special, the Scuderia Ferrari is celebrating their 1000th in GP in Formula, so they are racing with a special livery and a darker red color, which reminds their first cars, back on 1950, it is the only team in F1 that has raced all seasons, certainly a successful team, no doubts!
Not only this, the safety car will also have a special livery, in red, as you can see on the picture below.
What to expect from Tuscan GP 2020?
Once more we will see Lewis Hamilton starting from the pole position, just ahead of Valtteri Bottas, the both Mercedes look unbeatable during the qualifying, starting again in the front roll. In 3rd and 4th are the RedBull cars of Verstappen and Albon, respectively.
The great surprise was Charles Leclerc, running with the new Ferrari livery, which is celebrating their 1000th GP, the driver qualified in an excellent 5th place, not expected though, as Ferrari cars this year are suffering with their weak engine, but we might see a good performance from the Monegasque. The other Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel will be starting on 14th position, unfortunately it is clear that the German is already thinking on his 2021 season, as he signed with Aston Martin for the next year.
The Racing Point cars will be starting on 6th with Sergio Perez, who is leaving the team and currently looking into his options for the next year, and on 7th will start Lance Stroll.
Daniel Riccardo will start on 8th, just ahead of the Mclaren of Carlos Sains in 9th and completing the 10 first places of the starting grid will be Esteban Ocon from Renault F1 team, which will be renamed to Alpine next year.
