Q&A on ZOOM: Antonio Giovinazzi

We decided to get to know Formula 1 driver Antonio Giovinazzi a bit better, so we organised a ZOOM interview and shot a few rapid-fire questions at him. Enjoy!

Antonio, you’ve raced on two Italian tracks in Formula 1. Sadly, you had an accident on one of them this year, but still, which track do you prefer – Monza or Mugello?

It’s a good question. Mugello in terms of the track itself, because it’s really nice to be driving here, especially in qualifying – there are many high-speed corners and a lot of downforce. Monza wins the competition of atmosphere for sure, the vibe there is simply fantastic, especially for me and for the fans. Unfortunately, this year they were not there. .

What would you choose: return of old-school legendary tracks or more new circuits?

Old-school tracks, definitely. It’s a whole different world, and I love it.

Marzocchi flies again with new Bomber DJ – a super burly, light weight dirt jump fork

The days of the super heavy dirt jump fork are long gone. Instead, thanks to Marzocchi’s rebirth at the hands of Fox, the Bomber DJ is back. Borrowing heavily from the longer travel Bomber Z1, the new DJ claims to be super stiff and impressively light. Like the Z1, the DJ uses the same 36mm […]
