F1 racing, Toscana GP: New race launched F1

It’s time to say goodbye to Monza, the next destination this September will be Mugello Circuit (Italy), which first appeared in F1 calendar. This will also be the Ferrari’s 1000th race.
Due to the complicated situation of the global COVID-19 pandemic, some races have been canceled this year. Instead of that, the FIA ​​has been trying to fill the race schedule with dual races in Austria, England, Italy and Bahrain, or adding new tracks like the Mugello, where riders will compete this weekend.

Mugello is a race track in Scarperia e San Piero, in the beautiful Tuscany region, northwest of Italy, only 35 km from the historic capital of Florence. At this track, there will usually be a number of international racing events over the years, most notably the MotoGP tournament in the 2-wheel format.
Street racing in Mugello has appeared in races since the 20s of last century. In 1970, racer Spartaco Dini traumatically caused an accident who crashed into a group of Firenzuola villagers, killed a 7-month-old child and injured four others during a private trial.
That incident seriously damaged the reputation of the race, so it was the last time the race was held on streets publicly.
After that, the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello was built in 1973 and opened its doors in 1974. In 1988, Ferrari acquired a new track, 120 km from their headquarters in Maranello, for the purpose of a test track.
During the 2012 season, Mugello was used for the test run. Mugello holds the FIA’s first-class license, proving it to be a qualified F1 race track.

Hamilton finished on the first place in an eventful race

The Grand Prix Tuscan on September 13 recently witnessed seven cars being eliminated after a series of events, but the first place was still in Lewis Hamilton’s hands.

Three times the safety vehicle appeared, twice the red flag was raised to pause the race, after a series of serious collisions. However, the two cars to finish first are still the Mercedes duo. The home team Ferrari continued to disappoint when they finished in 9th and 10th respectively.

Completing 59 laps at Mugello with a time of 2 hours 19 minutes 35,060 seconds, Hamilton had the 90th victory in his F1 career. Although starting the first time, the British driver also had to experience fierce competition with his teammate Bottas to be able to finish first at Mugello. This result helped Hamilton close the record 91 victories of the legendary Michael Schumacher, and at the same time outstripped Bottas by 55 points on the individual scoreboard.
When the race started, Hamilton lost the lead to Bottas right before Turn 1. But the race only lasted to three corners because of the collision between the trio Kimi Raikkonen (Alfa Romeo), Pierre Gasly ( Alpha Tauri) and Romain Grosjean (Haas). Starting in third place, but Max Verstappen (Red Bull) also dropped to the end of the race due to an engine problem while accelerating, causing the RB16 to collide with a trio of cars crashing into the gravel. Taking advantage of the incident, Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) climbed to b-position just before the safety vehicle was ordered to be deployed. Gasly and Verstappen had to stop the game soon.

Lewis Hamilton: ‘Hot weather destroys the tires’

Becoming the primary one to end the race within the second Spanish Grand Prix test on August 14, Lewis Hamilton still continuously complained about the heat on the Catalonia racecourse.”It is difficult to play when the surface temperature is up to 50 degrees C,” Hamilton shared his viewpoint with Motorsport on August 14. “Never had I experienced such a particularlyheat in Spain like that. Usually, we only visited Barcelona in February, March, or at the most May.

The weather is good, but it’ll destroy the car. Tires of those race cars can’t stand that temperature. Overheating the tires will make the car slip easily on the track “. The fastest speech which Hamilton reached at FP2 was executed within the afternoon, with a record of 1 minute 16,883 seconds. But the simplest results for that day’s race belonged to Valtteri Bottas at FP1 within the morning, with 1 minute 16,785 seconds. The Mercedes W11 struggled under the warmth of the sun but was still nearly a second faster than the Max Verstappen.

“We did an honest test,” Hamilton added. “The FP2 went smoother on behalf of me. I feel the gap between Red Bull and Mercedes isn’t that big, within the future. the most lap are going to be interesting. i do not skills many laps Mercedes and Red Bull can run with each tire within the future. which will affect the one-pit or two-pit strategy.Supplier Pirelli used stiffer tires in comparison with the race at Silverstone last weekend. The weather outlook in Barcelona showed that the Saturday on the 15h of August would even be hotter, because the qualifying round began. But the temperature could calm down on Sunday’s main race.

F1 limited the power of Mercedes

F1 teams will not have the right to utilize a separate engine mode for qualifying rounds since the Belgian race on August 30.
According to Motorsport, General Secretary of the World Motorsport Federation (FIA) – Mr. Peter Bayer – sent letters to inform 10 teams about the new change. The letter states that these teams can only use one internal combustion engine (ICE) mode for both qualifying and main lap. This letter did not comply with any regulations, but the FIA ​​will soon finalize the document and will apply new rules from the Belgian Grand Prix.
According to Article 27.1 of the 2020 season specification, riders must ‘drive alone and without assistance’. Changing the internal combustion engine mode means that the rider may violate the rules above.
Teams are still not sure about how the new rules will affect their practice. If riders are allowed to use only one engine mode in the qualifying and main lap, they will have limited processing power during the race.
Motorsport said the FIA ​​had wanted to limit the power of teams using Mercedes engines, including Mercedes, Racing Point and Williams. The engine mode of these three teams in the qualifying round produces a significantly higher performance in the main lap. Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton usually won the pole with a difference of about a second greater than the racer behind. But in the main race, the average speed of the two Mercedes drivers is not too superior to the competitors. If you can limit the speed of Mercedes in the classification round, the FIA ​​will help the F1 to become more attractive.

Hamilton won easily at Catalunya

Lewis Hamilton outstripped his rival Max Verstappen and teammate Mercedes Valtteri Bottas for the fourth consecutive time in the Spanish Grand Prix.
Verstappen’s hope of recurring the outstanding performance a week ago has soon gone, simply because the W11 was too powerful and didn’t occur the same tire problems like two races at Silverstone. The distance between Hamilton and the following group was continuously widened during the match, then the British driver finished before Verstappen to 24,177 seconds. Except for Red Bull’s racer and Bottas teammate, the rest of the race was surpassed by Hamilton.
At first place at the Spanish Grand Prix on August 16, Hamilton got the 88th victory and was only behind the legendary Michael Schumacher with the distance of exactly three victories. This is also the 156th time British riders have finished in the top 3, just enough to surpass Schumacher’s own record.
As the previous expectation, the air temperature in Catalunya is up to 30 degrees Celsius, causing the surface temperature of the track to be pushed up to 48 degrees Celsius. The race is, therefore, truly physical torture to all the racers. But there was no sign of such an objective condition that would make it difficult for Hamilton. Mercedes President Toto Wolff commented before the race that Verstappen was the most prospective candidate for the first-place position thanks to its impressive speed at long distances. However, the reality is not happening as predicted above.
Starting from the beginning and successfully holding the position, Hamilton always held the leading position for the rest of the race, although in the second half of the race there was constant information about the possible thunderstorms on Catalunya.
