After a wild opening weekend at the Bahrain Grand Prix, F1 drivers are off the track for the next few weeks until the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari, colloquially known as Imola, the town in which it’s housed.

In 2020, Lewis Hamilton — shocking, we know — took home the race win over teammate Valtteri Bottas, with Daniel Ricciardo filling out the podium at the back end. Five drivers did not finish the race in 2020, meaning more race-day hijinks could come
