Emilia Romagna Grand Prix History & Highlights

The first Formula 1 Grand Prix at Imola was held in September 1980 when the Monza Circuit was being refurbished.

Three-time world champion Nelson Piquet won the inaugural race for Brabham-Ford. Formula 1 raced at Imola until 2006 under the title of the “San Marino Grand Prix” before returning as the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in 2020.

The Imola Circuit was home to one of the deadliest weekends in recent Formula 1 Grand Prix history. In 1994, Jordan driver Rubens Barrichello hit a curb during the Friday qualifying session and was knocked unconscious when he hit a tire barrier.

During the Saturday qualifying session, rookie Simtek driver Roland Ratzenberger died after hitting a concrete retaining barrier wall. Sunday’s race saw the death of three-time world champion Ayrton Senna when he struck a concrete barrier in the Tamburello corner.

These marked the first deaths at a Formula 1 race since 1982, when Italian Riccardo Paletti died at the Canadian Grand Prix, and the first of a Formula 1 driver since 1986, when Italian driver Elio de Angelis died during testing.

Senna’s death led to permanent changes to the Tamburello corner and his and Ratzenberger’s deaths led to permanent changes in car design. It would be another 20 years before another Formula 1 driver died.

Jules Bianchi’s death in 2015 following a collision with a recovery vehicle at the Japanese Grand Prix is the latest.

Under the title of both the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix and the San Marino Grand Prix, seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher has the most victories at Imola with seven. Fellow champions Senna and Alain Prost are tied for second with three each.
