2020 Formula 1 Tuscan Grand Prix session timings and preview

As part of the sweeping changes introduced to the 2020 F1 calendar in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Mugello is one of the several new or returning European circuits that have been added to the schedule.

The Italian venue will host the ninth round of the season and also mark the 1000th grand prix appearance for Ferrari, which owns the circuit and uses it as a test facility.

The Maranello-based brand heads to Mugello on the back of two non-point finishes at Spa and Monza and will be hoping for a better showing in front of limited fans in the grandstands.
