Scuderia Ferrari - F1 Spanish Grand Prix – The place for surprises


Because of its location, characteristics and climate, the Catalunya Circuit is today the traditional training ground for Formula 1. For the past three years it has been the sole venue for winter testing and it will host two more days of in-season testing on the Tuesday and Wednesday following this weekend’s Grand Prix. For some time now, it is also the venue that kicks off the European season, characterised by the arrival of the mobile hospitality units, still erroneously referred to as “motorhomes” and the fact that cars and equipment all travel by land. The trucks leave #maranello on the Tuesday evening before the race and take around 12 hours to reach the track to the north of Barcelona. In contrast to the races outside Europe, the SF71Hs travel virtually fully assembled, having been rebuilt at the factory rather than the track.

Devote, Mirabeau, Rascasse and the 180 ° hairpin near the Fairmont Hotel - are part of the story. of Formula 1. It goes without saying that with these characteristics of the track, a good qualifying is essential in Monaco.

  • F1 Racing in thin air - Charles Leclerc explains the United States Grand Prix

    Scuderia Ferrari Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc talks about the key sections of the Circuit of the Americas, ahead of the 2019 United States Grand Prix: “I really like being in the United States and the city of Austin is amazing. It is just a great location and the atmosphere around the whole event is special, different to what we usually have. The circuit itself is also quite unique. Inspired by parts of some of the most iconic race tracks around the world, it gives us drivers a really nice challenge. With a long straight and a lot of different types of corners, you have to make sure to find the right balance for the car. It is also one of the few tracks to run counter-clockwise, so that mixes things up for us in the cockpit, too.” – Scuderia Ferrari Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc said.

  • Sebastian Vettel explains the F1 Monza circuit 2018

    "If ever there was a need to say it, the Italian Grand Prix, for Scuderia Ferrari, is a special race. In the pack of memories, even if limited to the Formula One years, you can draw randomly and find something: from the first victory with Alberto Ascari, dated 1951, to the world confirmation of Lauda and Scheckter to the five successes of Michael Schumacher - all with the Red, in the space of eleven years - which in the history of F1 remains the most seen rider on the highest step of the Monza podium. That podium that today has become a catwalk able to offer a unique view, both to those above and to the public below. The national Grand Prix number 69 (only one, remember, was not held in Monza but in Imola in the 80) started practically close to that of Belgium. A small team was seconded for the preparation of the Milan event on Wednesday 29, the activity at the Autodromo began in the early days of the week. Spa and Monza chase each other on the calendar and, in the collective imagination, they also look like super-fast tracks. In reality there are several differences, because the route of Brianza does not have the full bends from that of the Ardennes but, on the contrary, asks a lot more to the brakes and promises, in a straight line, even greater speeds. If there is a common point, besides being two classics of the calendar, it is the passion of the fans that never fails. And that in Monza, not even to say it, is above all red passion."
