There is great expectation, emotion and adrenaline for the next Formula 1 Grand Prix of Made in Italy and Emilia-Romagna which will see the Enzo and Dino Ferrari International Circuit of Imola as an extraordinary stage in the year of its 70th anniversary.
After the race in Miami, F1 is back on track and for this reason we have checked the weather forecast for the Imola GP weekend, the sixth race of the 2023 season.
Formula 1 returns to Italy to officially kick off the European season, which will later conclude with the Monza Grand Prix. Since the 2020 championship, which was disrupted by the Coronavirus pandemic, what was once the San Marino GP has returned to the Formula 1 calendar for good.
Last year, Charles Leclerc arrived in Emilia Romagna as the World Championship leader after a great start to the season. The Imola weekend was the first warning sign for Scuderia Ferrari, as Red Bull showed they had a great race pace even in the wet. The Monegasque also made a mistake trying to catch up with Sergio Perez in the fight for second place.

The first two free practice sessions at the 4.909-kilometre Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari should take place in great conditions, with a lot of sunshine expected. Temperatures around 20°C with a slightly cloudy sky. Teams should introduce important updates, and the absence of precipitation is essential for making comparisons with wind tunnel data.
However, qualifying for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix is expected to be marked by rain. The thermometer will continue to show 20°C, but the wet track could be a variable not to be underestimated when cars go in search of the fastest lap.
As for the 2023 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, there could be very different conditions between the beginning and the end of the Grand Prix. As was the case last year, rain is not excluded according to the latest forecast.
