One week after the appointment of the Italian Grand Prix of Monza, scheduled for September 6th – the last event of the current provisional calendar of the F1 2020 world championship – more sources now indicate that the second race will be made official in Italy. In all likelihood, the traditional race at Monza will be accompanied by the Mugello race, which will enter the list of world championship stages with the unpublished denomination of the Tuscan Grand Prix.
For Formula 1 and Italy it will be a unique opportunity to celebrate the 1000 GPs of Ferrari’s history on the track owned by the Prancing Horse, which has never hosted a race of the highest category. To confirm that all the pieces are now making up this puzzle was a source from Ferrari, to the Ansa agency: “It is probable “. The official communication of FIA and F1 could arrive as early as tomorrow or in any case next week.
Built in 1972 on the initiative of the Automobile Club Firenze, the track was inaugurated in 1974. Ferrari bought it in 1988, renovating it. Over the years it has hosted DTM, Formula 2, Formula 3000, FIA GT and MotoGP races. The circuit has repeatedly hosted private tests of Formula 1 teams and in 2012 a collective testing session.
