WATCH: Schumacher vs Alonso and an early Prost-Senna battle – Top 10 moments at Imola

Share

Formula 1 returns to Italy for the third time in 2020 this weekend when the circus pitches up at Imola for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

It will be the first time F1 has raced around the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari since 2006, but the track has a huge amount of racing history.

Of course it was the scene of the awful tragedy in 1994 when both Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna were killed on the same weekend, but in happier times it has also hosted some terrific racing moments.

It was where Michael Schumacher took his first pole for Ferrari in 1996, as his love affair with the tifosi kicked off on home soil for the Italian team, and it was where Michael's brother Ralf got his maiden F1 victory in 2001.

Before that it hosted two early Ayrton Senna/Alain Prost battles, an unforced off from Mika Hakkinen while leading the race in 1999, and a superb coming-of-age performance from Fernando Alonso in 2005 when the new kid on the block held off relentless pressure from Schumacher's Ferrari to win the race.

Hit play on the video above to see 10 of the best racing moments from this historic Italian track.
