Who will win the F1 Imola?
We reach Europe and the first of our F1 sprint races for the season. The 2 leading title contenders appear to be Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen.
Defending champion Verstappen has had 2 DNF's (did not finish) this season, with a victory wedged in between.
Ferrari carried on outstanding pre-season form, clocking up 2 victories and also the fastest lap times at all 3 events.
This is a home race for Ferrari, their car is performing in all conditions and everything is running seamlessly so far. All that points to another victory for them.
