The 2020 Formula 1 season continues and this weekend teams and drivers will be staying in Italy for the Tuscan Grand Prix where they’ll race at the Mugello circuit which will be holding its first Grand Prix ever.
The Tuscan Grand Prix is the 9th round in the F1 2020 Calendar and this weekend’s race will be held at Mugello circuit. While Mugello has been used for testing by Ferrari since the track first opened in 1974 and more recently by Mercedes for tire testing, this will be the circuit’s first ever Grand Prix. The Mugello circuit has a total of 15 turns, a circuit length of 3.25 miles and drivers will complete 59 laps before finishing the 192 mile race. Racing Experience’s Gary Hauser currently holds the best lap record at Mugello with a time of one minute and thirty four seconds.
As for the standings going into the ninth race of the 2020 F1 season, Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton still holds the top spot with 164 points, 5 wins and 6 podiums. However, there’s been a bit of a change in the second spot as Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas with 117 points, 1 win and 6 podiums has managed to overtake Red Bull’s Max Verstappen who is now in third place with 110 points, 1 win and 6 podiums. When it comes to the constructor standings, Mercedes still ranks first with 281 points followed by Red Bull with 158 points and McLaren with 98 points.
At last weekend’s Italian Grand Prix, the podium looked quite a bit different than it has at other race’s this season with AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly taking the top spot followed by McLaren’s Carlos Sainz Jr. and Racing Point’s Lawrence Stroll. This was because a Safety Car was brought out to recover the car of Haas’ Kevin Magnussen on Lap 20 and Mercedes made the decision to pit Lewis Hamilton after the call had been made, earning him a 10-second stop/go penalty which ultimately ended up costing him the race.
