Michele Alboreto. The name is enough to bring us fond memories. A driver – but above all a man – whose image is still alive in the memory of those who had the opportunity to meet him and for his fans. Twenty years after his death, which took place on 25 April 2001 during a test on the German circuit of Lausitzring, the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza has decided to pay homage to the Milanese driver.
As you can read on the social profile of a true friend of Alboreto, Oscar Berselli – whose post we report in full – at the 2021 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix, which takes place on 11 September, the Parabolica corner will be named after Alboreto, thus forever remembering the name of Michele, who raced for Ferrari five seasons (1984–88).
The ACI Sport Federal School had already been dedicated to Alboreto, an institution that in fact continuite the former Ferrari driver’s desire to offer young people a concrete possibility of finding a place in the motor categories. A corner at Monza will now always be the testimony of affection and gratitude towards a person who has given his all to motoring, making himself remembered in a perpetual way for elegance, class, humility, education and, above all, his speed on track.
