【F1 Feature】Emilia-Romagna station canceled

The Imola track has become a water town, and the Pirelli trucks (the one in black in the middle) that arrived at the scene first due to geographical reasons were all soaked in the water.

In mid-May, due to the extreme climate in southern Europe, the northern Italian region where the Emilia-Romagna Station is located was hit by heavy rain, and many places became flooded. When the teams arrived at the airport on the Wednesday before the race, the race committee notified them Do not go to the stadium for the time being, and immediately after F1 held an emergency meeting with local officials, it was decided to cancel the race at this station.

Due to the disaster, the local traffic is in chaos and the medical units are also full. If the competition is held at this time, it will cause great pressure on the local area, and it will also take up already tight manpower and material resources, which may cause greater harm to the victims of the disaster. , making this station the first temporary cancellation of F1 since the opening station in 2020 was disrupted by the pneumonia epidemic in Wuhan, China.

In fact, starting from 2020, as long as F1 wants to hit a new season high, it will inevitably encounter variables, and the results all challenge and fail: 22 games were scheduled that year, and 17 games were added or subtracted due to the epidemic; 23 games are scheduled for 2021. In 2022, 23 games will be discharged again, but due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, they will be removed from the list and become 22 games again.

At the beginning of this year, there were 24 games, which were reduced to 23 games due to the cancellation of the Chinese race before the season. However, after entering the post-epidemic era, it seemed that there would be no more variables to prevent F1 from breaking the record, but it encountered Emilia-Romagna. It was canceled and turned into 22 races, and F1 has announced that it will not arrange make-up races or additional races, so this year's "current" is determined to be "only" 22 races; facing the team's reaction to too many races, is it God's will? ?

In terms of ticketing, the original F1 response to this situation was to postpone for one year, but this time it was decided to immediately refund the tickets in full, so that the audience can make other arrangements. From a financial point of view, this figure seems to be a drop in the bucket, but it is always good to have charity.

This station is the first of two races in Italy this year. It may be difficult for Ferrari to perform at home this season. It may be a sigh of relief now—avoiding a disastrous home defeat—but Pirelli The launch of new tire styles and upgrade kits for many teams at this station will be postponed for another station.

Among the upgrades of the teams, the most eye-catching thing is that Mercedes originally planned to launch a major facelift model on the racing car without a side box design, but the results will be postponed to the next stop in Monaco. It is a street race, and the impact of body aerodynamics on performance is relatively low, so it is not easy to evaluate the effect of the major facelift, which makes the review and improvement of the new plan have to be postponed for another stop...
