Formula 1 is back in Europe. The Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola will host the second Grand Prix of the 2021 season next weekend – this could be the first win for Verstappen?
As things stand, the weather in Emilia Romagna is likely to be typical for April: Sunshine, clouds and rain are to be expected at times. Ideal for Max Verstappens’ Red Bull.
It was only last autumn that the pinnacle of motorsport last visited the historic race track, which has hosted the San Marino GP in the past. The last European race of the year was held there on the first of November 2020.
At that time, the temperatures were higher than those to be expected this weekend. During the race, it got up to 19 degrees Celsius.
For those hoping for a mixup in race results, this could well be just what the doctor ordered with expected poor weather on Sunday for the race itself. Perhaps a good punt would be on Max Verstappen of Red Bull who ran a race win challenging P2 last year until retiring late in the race due to tyre issues. Those who enjoy a bet might like to head over to 22Bet for a flutter. Of course, TJ13 must state betting can be an enjoyable way of watching live sport, but when the fun stops, stop.
