Antonio Giovinazzi will join a stellar list of Formula 1 legends this weekend when he receives the Bandini Trophy award, in recognition of his elevation to F1 with Alfa Romeo. Giovinazzi is the first Italian to race in F1 in eight years.
He will be recognised in the Emilia Romagna town of Brisighella on Saturday.
No fewer than eight former world champions have been awarded the Bandini trophy, which is awarded annually to recognise an achievement in motorsport.
It is named after Lorenzo Bandini, an Italian racer who died after a crash in the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix.
As is tradition, Giovinazzi will drive his car from Piazza del Popolo in Faenza to Piazza Carducci in the centre of nearby Brisighella, Bandini's home town.
