Formula 1 drivers have been warned that their lap times will be deleted if they exceed the track limits two of the Imola corners

Formula 1 returns to Imola this weekend for the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix 14 years after the circuit last hosted a world championship

The circuit has been modified since the last visit to Formula 1 with the retreat of the start / finish line and the Variante Bassa chicane removed

In his pre-event notes released on Friday morning, the drivers were warned by race director Michael Masi not to exceed the track limits when exiting the left of Piratella and the Variante Alta chicane

« A lap time achieved during a practice session or the race leaving the track will invalidate this lap time by the stewards, » Masi confirmed

« A driver will be deemed to have left the track if no part of the car remains in contact with the track

« On the third occasion where a driver fails to negotiate [turns 9 and 15] using the track during the race, a black and white flag will be presented to him, any new cut will then be reported to the marshals

« For the avoidance of doubt, this means a total of three chances combined and not three on each turn »
