Baku, June 9, AZERTAC
Ferrari could celebrate its 1,000th world championship race appearance in front of its home crowd this year at a new venue for the series, according to RaceFans.
Multiple sources confirmed to RaceFans Formula 1 has contacted Ferrari about the possibility of using its Mugello circuit to host a round of this year’s world championship one week after the Italian Grand Prix.
Ferrari named its 2020 F1 car the SF1000 in recognition of its upcoming 1,000th race start in the world championship. Following the eight race dates which were confirmed by Formula 1 Management last week, its 999th start will now fall on the Italian Grand Prix weekend at Monza in September.
F1 has already arranged for back-to-back races to take place in Austria and Britain. Doing the same in Italy would allow Ferrari to mark its milestone race on home ground – a proposal the team is understood to have responded favourably to.
