Mugello, Italy – In the unbridled competition of the Italian Grand Prix on the famous Mugello circuit, motorcycle enthusiasts wonder for a long time what is the secret that distinguishes this Tuscan track. Let’s go find out!
The circuit map clearly reveals a series of pressing changes of direction, such as turns 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, and the demanding Biondetti finals. But what is the secret that leads the drivers to achieve exceptional performance on this track?
Let’s dive into the action on the circuit. We are in turn 2-3, where entry requires greater caution and reduced speed. The basic idea is sacrificing initial speed to be able to come out with more thrust into the next corner. This concept applies to all of the S-curves that follow.
In other words, the goal is to gain more advantage by exiting turn 3 with energy rather than entering turn 2 with more generosity. An eloquent example of this strategy is also evident in the dreaded curve Scarperia Palagio, considered the most demanding of the entire circuit. Here, the drivers must try to stay as close as possible to the curb during entry, thus allowing them to catapult themselves with maximum thrust towards the next corner.
The key to successfully negotiating these curves lies in the balance between the initial speed and the exit with a greater force. Drivers must therefore understand the importance of a correct strategy in the corners, accumulating as much energy as possible for corner exit.
The Italian Grand Prix at Mugello is therefore confirmed as a crucial stage in the motorcycle racing calendar. Its technical configuration and its breathtaking curves put the centaurs to the test which, I’m sure, will give the public a great show in what is considered one of the most beautiful circuits in the world, if not the best.
