Imola F1 race to be condensed with no Friday practice

Formula One's Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola, Italy, in November will be condensed into two days without Friday practice, the sport said on Tuesday.

Session times for the November 1 race show only one 90-minute free practice session scheduled before qualifying on the Saturday.

Formula One race weekends usually feature two practice sessions on the Friday, with a third on Saturday followed by qualifying.

Imola, previously home to the San Marino Grand Prix and returning after a 14-year absence, was added to the calendar in July to increase the number of rounds after cancellations due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It will be the third F1 race in Italy this season after Monza and Mugello.
