Tests of the Formula 1 World Championship, the complete calendar for 2023

The winter test sessions of the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship will be held in Sakhir (Bahrain), from 23 to 25 February. Appointments halved compared to 2022, to make way for the longest season ever. In the meantime, the car manufacturers involved in the 2023 F1 Championship have begun to communicate the presentation dates of the single-seaters.

The presentations of the single-seaters and the winter tests in preparation for the new season are the steps leading up to the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship . Appointments awaited by all fans, who warm the environment and increase curiosity for the start of the new championship. The test dates have already been announced, while as regards the presentations, few teams have yet to announce the date on which they will unveil their cars.

When will the Mondale F1 2023 tests take place? Schedule and results

The 2023 Formula 1 season will be the longest in history, with 24 Grands Prix and the start anticipated on March 3rd. For this reason, the FIA has decided to reduce the winter tests leading up to the World Championship to just one appointment, which will take place in Sakhir, Bahrain, from 23 to 25 February 2023 (autodrome which will also be the scene of the first Grand Prix, from 3 to March 5). However, the tests in Barcelona (Spain), scheduled last year, have been cancelled.

While awaiting the results of the 2023 tests, it is worth remembering that Verstappen (Red Bull) triumphed in 2022 in Bahrain, recording the best time, with 1:31.720. Behind him were placed Mick Schumacher (Haas), with 1: 32.241, and Lecrerc (Ferrari) with 1: 32.415. Much further back, however, Hamilton, who finished in seventeenth place, with a time of 1:36.217.

F1 World Championship 2023: the presentations of the single-seaters

If the date of the winter tests is already known, there is still a mystery about those of the presentations of the single-seaters by the teams. Currently, only three manufacturers have already set the date on which they will show the cars with which they will face the Formula 1 World Championship in 2023.

Corporate team building activity, 3 winning ideas to make a group

Corporate team building activities have long been widespread among companies in every sector. Through team building events, in fact, it is possible to work on the harmony and motivation of employees, enhancing the so-called human resources of the company. The important thing, however, is to find the right idea, the one that manages to keep fun and effectiveness together. Here are 3 ideas for successful corporate team building.

Those who work in the human resources sector know it well: creating a positive climate among company employees is essential to allow them to work at their best and be productive. In fact, a motivated worker who feels part of a project that enhances him is naturally led to commit more, to contribute ideas and energy to the good running of the company, to collaborate with colleagues in a profitable way. An advantage for everyone: for the company, which will see its productivity grow, and for the worker, who will not experience the time spent in the factory or office with frustration. But how are these positive results achieved? The modalities are obviously manifold. An important role, however, is played by the so-called corporate team building activities , that is, initiatives aimed precisely at cementing employees, motivating them and helping them to form a group. Like many of the innovations in entrepreneurship and human resource management, corporate team building events originated in the United States but soon spread around the world. In Italy, for many years now, the HR departments of the largest and most innovative companies have been carrying out periodic team building activities aimed at all employees or specific sectors . More and more often, in the personnel offices, there are professionals who are specifically dedicated to organizing these initiatives and are always looking for new ideas and ideas for team building . Of course, there are many possibilities. At least 3, however, have an edge and deserve to be tried at least once.

Escape room, only those who play as a team win

The first idea for a winning corporate team building is the escape room , a group game that is now very popular and widespread in all major Italian cities. Technically, these are rooms (or perhaps it would be better to talk about labyrinths) from which it is possible to escape only by solving chain puzzles . There are many different types of escape rooms . What changes is above all the setting : from horror to science fiction, there is no suggestion that has not been explored by the creators of these game rooms. What does not change is the fundamental ingredient needed to pass the test: the harmony of the group. From an escape room you can only go out together, if you are a team. And this is precisely the reason that makes this format particularly suitable for corporate team building initiatives .

Adventure park, to make groups in the open air

Another activity much loved by human resources managers is the path inside an adventure park . And even in this case, the variety of the offer generates the embarrassment of choice. Around Italy, in fact, there are many equipped parks that offer the opportunity to try your hand at adventurous paths , including suspension bridges, launches with lianas and walls of rope to climb. All tests that allow you to test your resourcefulness and that, if lived in a group, are also a valid test of harmony and empathy . With an important addition: carrying out outdoor team building activities, immersed in nature, contributes to the psychophysical well-being of the participants.

Track ride in the Temple of Speed, the adrenaline that makes you grow

Escape room and adventure park, however, are now quite widespread team building activities, almost overused. Many companies, on the other hand, like novelty, the idea that displaces, which represents something unique for their employees to experience. And here, then, that Autodromo Nazionale Monza comes to the rescue with one of its most requested driving experiences : the “ Hot Laps ”, organized by Puresport . It is a truly unrepeatable experience: whizzing on one of the most famous tracks in the world aboard real racing cars, Gran Turismo or Formula 1 single-seaters. All this, supported by professional pilots . A team building activity of this type guarantees indescribable emotions and a full of adrenaline. Impossible not to be enchanted by the exclusivity of the location and the vibrations of a magical place.

Arengario di Monza, guide to the discovery of the ancient town hall

The Arengario of Monza is one of the symbolic places of the city. Formerly the seat of the town hall, the medieval town hall now hosts important art exhibitions and events. A short guide to learn more about its structure and history.

The Arengario di Monza , located in the heart of the historic center , is one of the symbolic monuments of the city of Brianza and deserves to be included among the tourist points of interest. And its history also deserves to be known, albeit briefly. In fact, the events that over time have transformed and shaped the old town hall of Monza , now home to important exhibitions, tell a lot about the medieval history of Italy.

Plan your visit to Monza by following the right advice on what to see and what to do

A brief history of the Arengario: why it is called that and what it was used for

As in any self-respecting story, however, it is good to start from the beginning, that is, from the construction of the Arengario . According to the most accredited reconstructions (which must be trusted in the absence of certain data), the construction of the famous palace began towards the end of 1200 . A dating that seems to be confirmed also by an inscription above the entrance door, which refers to the year 1293 (expressed in Roman numerals). The then powerful mayor of Monza, Pietro Visconti , wanted the birth of the Arengario. But why did he build it? What was the Arengario used for? The triggering reason was the contrast between the power of the podestà and that of the church . Until the 13th century, in fact, the magistrates and the podestà used the curtain of the Cathedral for their activities, as they did not have a civil building that could house them. In 1250, however, the mayor was struck by excommunication and his stay near the main religious building in Monza became unwelcome. A confirmation of this struggle between civil power and religious power also comes from the place where the Arengario is located, a few steps from the Duomo, which it is also physically opposed to. At this point, however, it is legitimate to ask why the name of Arengario was chosen for the new town hall . What does this term mean? It is a word borrowed from the German, which means “ meeting place ”, to signal the fundamental function carried out by the building, seat of the municipality, the court and the merchants.

Structure and characteristics of the Palazzo Comunale of Monza

From the point of view of the structure and style, the Arengario is clearly inspired by the Palazzo della Ragione in Milan , built in the first half of the 1200s. The overall layout is longitudinal, with an open porch on the lower floor and a large covered room on the upper floor. Unlike the Milanese building, however, the town hall of Monza is flanked by an imposing bell tower . Furthermore, it should be noted that the current appearance of the Arengario does not correspond to its original state. In fact, between the end of the 1800s and the beginning of the 1900s, major renovations were planned and carried out, with a consequent reduction in the spaces of the complex, which previously also included the Palazzo Pretorio (demolished). A second massive restoration took place at the end of the 1960s, with the aim of supporting the exhibition vocation of the Arengario.

The exhibitions of the Arengario

Not surprisingly, today the ancient municipal building in Brianza is home to very important art exhibitions and events organized by the municipal administration. The permanent collections that it previously housed, on the other hand, have been transferred to the Civic Museums. To find out about the exhibitions in the Arengario in real time, you can consult the website of the Municipality of Monza .

Visit the Arengario: contacts, where it is, how to reach it

As anticipated, the Arengario is located in the historic center, precisely in Piazza Roma . It is therefore easily reachable on foot from any of the other tourist sites ( Monza Cathedral and its Museum , Villa Reale , Monza Park ). The structure is open to the public every day, except Mondays, from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm to 7pm . For information, please call 039 329541 .

The final score won by the driver is the sum of the points collected in each race . It should be noted, however, that the various appointments on the calendar do not all have the same weight. In fact, some circuits are assigned a coefficient of 1.5 (Pista Salentina and Pista Sette Laghi), which must be multiplied by the score obtained by the driver in that stage.

The Arengario palace

A little more than 100 meters on foot from the Duomo, stands the other symbol of Monza: the Palazzo dell'Arengario , that is the ancient town hall. Its importance is also confirmed by its strategic position, as it overlooks Piazza Roma , the nerve center of the city, from which all the main streets branch off. Today, the building is used as an exhibition space , while the ancient collections that filled it have been transferred to the nearby Civic Museums , housed in the Casa degli Umiliati .

The distance between the Arengario and the Museums is really minimal, less than 300 meters, passing again near the Duomo. To confirm that walking around Monza is very easy. The building where the museums are located was an old reception house for lay members of religious orders . Today, the two floors of the structure house both archaeological finds and paintings from the sixteenth to the twentieth century , as well as temporary exhibitions .

The Longobard Tower, the Teodolinda Tower and the Viscontea Tower

If you leave the Civic Museums and head towards the Lambro river , you have the opportunity to admire two towers, which are also very characteristic. They are the Lombard Tower , the only one from that period still intact, and the Tower of Teodolinda , from the Middle Ages. Also along the Lambro there is also the nineteenth-century Torre Viscontea , but moved further south, about 500 meters from the other two.

What to do in Monza

The Ponte dei Leoni and the remains of the Ponte d'Arena

Near the Tower of Teodolinda, it is also possible to admire the Bridge of the lions , the most famous of those that cross the Lambro river. It was built in the mid-1800s, with the intention of enhancing the Austrian Empire. To make room for it, what remained of the old Ponte d'Arena was demolished, much larger but already partially destroyed by a flood, the last of which are still visible.

The churches and other monuments of the historic center of Monza

In closing and in no particular order, some other places of historical and artistic interest deserve to be mentioned, such as the war memorial located in Piazza Trento e Trieste . The same goes for the numerous churches scattered all over the city, such as Santa Maria in Strada , San Maurizio (where legend has it that the nun of Monza took her vows), Santa Maria al Carrobiolo and San Pietro Martire .

Safe driving, a course to become responsible pilots

Taking a safe driving course to learn how to drive responsibly is a great idea. The important thing, however, is to be clear about what safe driving means and what are the characteristics that a course must have to be really useful. Here are some tips for future riders with their heads on their shoulders.

Having a driver's license in your pocket does not mean being a good driver . Likewise, being technically capable behind the wheel does not necessarily imply that you are able to carry your car or motorcycle safely . It often happens, in fact, to meet people exceptionally capable of dominating their own car, perhaps even whizzing at high speed or in unfavorable conditions, however, precisely because of this excess of confidence, they implement very unsafe behavior , both for themselves and for any passengers or road users. Safe driving , therefore, is a very different concept from sporty driving or driving skills, and to implement it you don't have to be professional pilots . Not surprisingly, there are real theoretical-practical courses to learn how to drive safely , open to anyone with a driving license.

What is meant by safe driving

To be more precise, the definition of safe driving includes a plurality of capabilities . Some have to do with technical aspects of car or motorcycle driving, while others have particular cognitive abilities. In summary, safe driving means:

  • Ability to control the vehicle in situations of poor grip with the road surface (such as in the case of wet asphalt or covered with ice)
  • Ability to control the vehicle in poor visibility situations (fog, heavy rain and the like)
  • Ability to prevent dangers and to behave in order to avoid or overcome them
  • Ability to self-assess one's driving ability (omitting to get behind the wheel if too tired or not perfectly lucid)

How it works and how much does a safe driving course cost

To learn the fundamentals of safety behind the wheel , the best way is to take a safe driving course . There are many on the market, some even officially organized by the ACI , at different locations. The Autodromo Nazionale Monza also frequently hosts events dedicated to safe driving. However, to choose the right course and not be attracted only by advertising, you need to pay attention to the program, which must mix both theoretical lessons and practical exercises in a balanced way. In addition, a serious safe driving course must include basic concepts from various fields : physics of movement, physics of materials, electronics, sociology, psychology. Only a multidisciplinary approach, in fact, can give that complete overview of the car (or motorcycle) and of oneself that is necessary to drive safely.

endurance races

Endurance races, when motorsport becomes endurance

Endurance races for cars are long-lasting competitions, even up to 24 hours, which require drivers to have a particular stamina. They are raced aboard Touring, Gran Turismo, Sport or prototype cars. In some cases, these are competitions that have made the history of motoring, such as the Mille Miglia or the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Usually, the first association that comes to mind when it comes to car racing is that with speed . Racing cars that devour the asphalt at over 300 km / h, drivers who attack the curves as if they never want to brake, single-seaters that whiz under the stands so fast that they are almost invisible. These are the images that the word motoring evokes to mind. Yet, there are competitions in which speed is not the most important variable , but where resistance counts, the ability to push beyond one's limits and stay behind the wheel for hours and hours, grinding kilometers after kilometers. It's the crazy world of car endurance .

What is endurance in sport and motoring

In reality, the term endurance is not a peculiarity of motoring and motorsport . There are endurance specialties in many sports, such as cycling, running or horse riding. The English word, in fact, translates with the Italian " resistance " and is used to define all those competitions that have a particularly long duration and therefore require athletes a considerable effort over time.

How endurance car races work and how long they last

Currently, in motor racing, endurance races are held exclusively on the track , within racetracks that guarantee high levels of safety. A single endurance race of this type can last up to 24 hours .

In the past, in addition to track races, endurance road competitions were also planned, held in streets open to traffic. Their high danger, however, has led to their progressive cancellation or transformation into track races. Heirs of those old endurance road competitions are the current rallies , which however have very different rules and methods of development (and are not part of endurance races).

Endurance machines

Obviously, in order to face such particular competitions, suitable machines are needed. From an aesthetic point of view, endurance cars wink at Formula 1 single-seaters . They are light (up to 850 kg), equipped with powerful engines (even higher than 1000 horsepower) and therefore capable of exceeding 200 km / h. In general, endurance cars can be divided into four categories :

  • Touring , designed and built in series for road use and adapted to racing;
  • Gran Turismo , designed and built in limited numbers and adapted to racing;
  • Sport
  • Prototypes

The most important endurance races for cars

Among the endurance competitions of the past, there are some that have really made the history of motoring, such as the Mille Miglia (which now only exists in the form of historical re-enactment) or the Targa Florio (the oldest, today it has become a rally). . Among the races that are still held, however, one cannot fail to mention the 24 Hours of Le Mans , which is also a stage of the World Endurance Championship (WEC) . The latter is today the international competition par excellence in the sector. Since 2012, it has been managed by FIA and includes 6 races (which also include the 6 Hours of Monza and the famous 6 Hours of Spa ), open to cars Sport Prototypes (LMP1 and LMP2) e Gran Turismo (GTE-Pro and GTE-Am), to which the very powerful have been added from 2021 Hypercar . Other endurance races of international standing are the 24 Hours of Nurburgring in Germany, the 12 Hours of Bathurst in Australia, the 24 Hours of Daytona and the Petit Le Mans in the United States .
