The 2020 Tuscan Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 Pirelli Gran Premio Della Toscana Ferrari 1000 2020) is the 9th round of the 2020 Formula One season. It was held from September 11th to 13th.

Practice was dominated by Valtteri Bottas, who recorded the fastest time in all three sessions. Teammate Lewis Hamilton was never far away, but finished fourth, second and third in the three sessions, while focusing on finding the proper setup for the race. Q1 was also led by Bottas, ahead of Hamilton by 0.029 seconds, with Max Verstappen in third, 0.586 back. Monza winner Pierre Gasly came in 16th, and failed to advance. Q2 saw Hamilton record the fastest effort for the first time all weekend, leading Bottas by just 0.013 seconds. Verstappen was in third again, 0.162 behind. And in Q3, Hamilton clinched the pole by going 0.059 faster than Bottas, with Verstappen 0.363 back.

Bottas led away from Hamilton at the start, but it was dominated by a series of incidents, the first being a multi-car collision between Kimi Raikkonen, Romain Grosjean, Gasly and Verstappen, who reported a loss of power at the start, and the second a huge accident at the Safety Car restart involving Antonio Giovinazzi, Carlos Sainz Jr, Kevin Magnussen and Nicholas Latifi on Lap 5, the latter incident causing the red flag. The race was restarted with Hamilton starting off better than Bottas, and the red flag was shown once again when Lance Stroll crashed heavily on Lap 43. Hamilton retained his lead from the restart and went on to win, with Bottas finishing second and Verstappen's team mate Alexander Albon third, taking his first career podium.


BackgroundEdit

The Mugello Circuit, previously used for testing was announced to be part of the revised race calendar for the 2020 Formula One Season on July 10, 2020, following a series of race cancellations that resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic. This marks the first time the circuit has hosted a Formula One race.

As the race marks Ferrari's 1000th entry in F1, Ferrari revealed that they are racing a special one-off livery to commemorate the occasion. The Safety Car has subsequently been painted red as well.

Prior to the race of the Italian Grand Prix, it was announced that Renault will be renamed as the Alpine team for 2021.

Racing Point driver Sergio Pérez has announced on Thursday, September 10 that he will be leaving the team by the end of 2020, making way for Sebastian Vettel into the rebranded Aston Martin team for 2021.
