Formula 1 heads to Europe for the first time in 2024 as the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola returns.

Last year's race was cancelled due to serve flooding in northern Italy but there shouldn't be any problems next weekend, where McLaren and Lando Norris will look to repeat their win from Miami.

Norris has been on the podium twice at Imola in his F1 career, including the championship's last visit in 2022.

Max Verstappen won that race and is still the driver to beat two years later, as he leads the drivers' standings by 33 points from Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez.

Charles Leclerc is 38 points behind Verstappen, with Norris and Carlos Sainz both 43 points adrift of the reigning world champion.

Ferrari trail Red Bull by 52 points in the constructors' championship but have a big upgrade for their first home event of the year.

This weekend's Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix in northern Italy was canceled Wednesday, May 17, 2023, because of deadly floods in the region. Formula One said it made the decision for safety reasons and to avoid any extra burden on the emergency services, after consulting with Italian political figures.

Should it work, Leclerc and Sainz will fancy their chances at seriously challenging Verstappen on a track which the drivers adore.
