Imola will host the first race weekend of the season with qualifying on Friday and sprinting on Saturday. Aston Martin drivers Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel believe this format will change the balance of power.
Lance Walk“It’s great that Imola not only returned to the Formula 1 calendar a few years ago, but also anchored in it and became one of the classic circuits. This is an old school track with narrow safety zones. The cars need to be set up for a fast and smooth circle, and it takes courage to find the limit as fast as possible and drive circles consistently.
It will be interesting to see how the sprint will change the balance of power this weekend.”
Sebastian Vettel: “Imola is a real test for the driver and the car, but it should be every circuit in Formula 1. It used to be hard to imagine that we would ever race in Imola with ground effect cars, but it’s great In a way we are going back to the eighties.
I’m looking forward to getting back behind the wheel and picking up speed. There has never been a sprint at Imola before, so it’s interesting how this will affect the balance of power.”
