Although the 'Mugello' name had been associated with racing in that area of Tuscany since back in 1914 - having previously referred to a fearsome 61-km road racing course - the Mugello circuit proper opened in June 1974. Ferrari then purchased the track, based a 120-km drive away from their headquarters, in 1988.

Despite having been a fixture for a number of international series over the years, most notably MotoGP, 2020 marks the first time that Mugello hosts a Formula 1 World Championship event.

Mugello is a swooping, undulating circuit that the drivers almost universally adore. Set in a valley, the natural topography makes a lap of the 5.2-km track - which has hosted many an F1 test in its time, including Kimi Raikkonen's famous first outing with Sauber - a real rollercoaster ride, with the stomach-churning run through Casanova, Savelli and into Arrabbiata 1 and 2 a particular highlight.

Not only is Mugello considered by many to be one of the world's finest circuits - it's also nestled in the hills of the beautiful Tuscan countryside, meaning that away from the track, picturesque villages and towns and incredible food and drink await you after a long day's racing action.

Opt for either the Poggio Secco grandstand on the outside of Turn 3, or the grandstand facing the Biondetti 1 and 2 complex to watch the cars coming out of the sweeping Correntaio right-hander before taking this right-left chicane.
