Just a few minutes ago, the official announcement was made by Formula 1: the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at the 4.909-kilometre Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, commonly known as Imola, will not take place this weekend due to the worsening weather conditions in Emilia Romagna. In particular, the decision was made to avoid overburdening the rescue teams, who are already engaged in more critical situations at the moment.
The decision was reached after a long meeting between Formula 1 representatives, the mayor of Imola, and the ACI (Automobile Club d’Italia).
For a possible rescheduling, the weekend between August 4th and 6th has been proposed, as reported by Formula 1 journalist Giuliano Duchessa on his Twitter account, immediately following the Belgian Grand Prix at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, which is scheduled for July 30th, thereby reducing the summer break by a few days. At the moment, official announcements are awaited regarding the future of the Imola event to determine whether it will only be postponed or completely canceled for the 2023 Formula 1 championship.
