Formula One will donate one million euros to a flood relief fund in Emilia-Romagna.

Formula One has announced a donation of 1 million euros (£867,000) to a relief fund for the Emilia-Romagna flooding disaster.

The grand prix at Imola in north-eastern Italy this weekend was canceled after severe rain caused fatalities and displaced thousands.

The funds will be used by the Agency for Territorial Safety and Civil Protection in Emilia-Romagna.

F1 has also arranged for the distribution of food that would have been utilized in hospitality to those in need.

It was given to a group that is organizing food banks and distribution for flood victims.

F1’s decision came just one day after Ferrari, whose Maranello factory is located in Emilia-Romagna, donated the same sum to disaster assistance.

F1 president and CEO Stefano Domenicali, who is from Imola, called the events in the area a “tragedy.”

“I was born and grew up in the marvellous lands of Emilia-Romagna, a place that is living through some of the saddest moments in its history,” Domenicali remarked.
