The Imola Grand Prix weekend will feature the first sprint race of the season. That means F1 qualifying is coming up on Friday with major stakes.

Formula 1 is back in Italy for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, or often referred to as the Imola GP.

This time Imola comes with a sprint race, which means qualifying a day early and extra race action on Saturday.
