Try not to blink if you have a view of the pits. This is where pit crews hone their skills for the 2-second tyre change.
Pit stop Practice at the Emilia Romagna GP is from 09:40 – 10:10 on Saturday morning.
This is when the grandstands really start to fill up. 2 hours before lights out, drivers warm-up for the race by waving at fans and answering questions. Last chance photo op before the helmets go on.
The driver’s parade at the Emilia Romagna GP is from 12:50 – 13:20 on Sunday afternoon.
A good chance to see the star drivers of the future. F2, the feeder series to F1 has seen many well-known names pass through its ranks. The single-seater cars have an identical chassis, engine and tyres which means it’s all about driver skill and the racing is close.
On Friday the F2 action starts with a 45-minute practice session in the morning and a 30-minute qualifying in the afternoon. The Sprint Race is on Saturday and the Feature Race in on Sunday.
Formula 3 is an important step on the road to success in single-seater motor racing. Drivers who do well here usually go on to compete in F2 and sometimes even make the leap to F1.
The F3 schedule starts with a 45-minute practice session on Friday morning followed by a qualifying session in the afternoon. The first race takes place on Saturday morning and the second and final race takes place on Sunday morning.
The long term support act for F1, Porche Supercup is a one make racing series that accompanies most of the European F1 races and some of the long hauls too.
The schedule sees a 45 minutes practice session on Friday, a 30 minute qualifying session on Saturday and a 30 minute race on Sunday.
