Jolyon Palmer column: Mugello offers lessons to F1 on sanitised circuits

Mugello was making its debut as an F1 race venue last weekend, but the circuit was built in 1974 and has kept its original layout. Its layout led to questions as to how hard overtaking might be come race day. In truth, the first corner was the only legitimate overtaking place on the circuit and some doubters will say that in itself is a problem. We are used to somewhat processional races at circuits like Budapest and Barcelona, which also don’t have more than one conventional overtaking place. That led to the first red flag, which was not really the circuit’s doing.
