After races in Australia, Malaysia and Bahrain, the Formula One circus returned to home ground this week as the motorhomes of the drivers and teams pulled into the historic Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit near Imola in Italy. The San Marino Grand Prix means a return to the European Grand Prix lifestyle which is of necessity, very different to the fly-away rounds. It’s where magnficent, luxurious, purpose-built surrounding can be driven to the circuit to make life more bearable, more fun and more efficient for 11 of the 19 race meetings each year. It’s where the world first sees each new mine’s-bigger-than-yours motorhome. It’s where the world first saw McLaren’s portable and palatial F1 nerve centre and this weekend, it gave us the first glimpse of what will surely become one of the most notorious and elite high-tech nightclubs on the planet – the Red Bull Energy Station.
