Hungarian GP 2021

Did you watch the controversial Verstappen/Hamilton crash in Silverstone two weeks ago? If not, you should definitely do! Max crashed out with a 51G impact and retired while Hamilton received a 10-second penalty – still, he went on to win the race. In my view, it was a racing incident – one that could have been avoided if either driver took their right foot off the throttle. Red Bull has lodged a formal petition to review the penalty that Lewis…

British GP 2021

Another commanding win from Red Bull and Max Verstappen, another step towards the world championship. This time, F1 is heading to Silverstone, UK with a new race format. Firstly, the qualifying session will be held on Friday, not on Saturday as usual. Secondly, on Saturday, the drivers will compete in a 100 km sprint race (17 laps of Silverstone) starting with their qualifying positions. No pit stops are necessary and the first three drivers will receive 3, 2 and 1…

Mercedes seemed to had no answers to Red Bull’s pace in last weekend’s Styrian GP where Verstappen saw the chequered flag 35 seconds before Hamilton. F1 is racing again this weekend on the same circuit with the only difference of Pirelli bringing a softer set of tyres. It remains to be seen if the C5 tyre (the softest one) will be enough to produce a different race – either due to the cars extracting different amounts of pace out of…

Styrian GP 2021

Austria hosted the two season-opening races last year and Mercedes were able to win both GPs – Bottas the first, Hamilton the second one. This time around, they’d better repeat this feat if they want to keep in touch with Verstappen and Red Bull in both world championships. We should also keep an eye on Bottas’ form as well as on whether the McLarens and the Ferraris will be able to score good points in their close fight as the…

French GP 2021

The last Grand Prix in Baku was as unpredictable as it can get with Perez taking the victory and Vettel and Gasly filling up the podium. Verstappen retired while Hamilton ended up finishing 15th after a rare mistake by the champ. Both title contenders will try to bounce back and make the most out the upcoming race. The circuit Paul Ricard did not host a race last year due to the pandemic but returns this time. In 2019, the circuit…

Azerbaijan GP 2021

Believe it or not, this is the first time Max Verstappen leads the driver’s world championship after 6 years in F1! Last race was characterized by Ferrari’s resurgence and Leclerc’s bad luck but what really matters is that Max is four points ahead of Lewis and Red Bull just one point ahead of Mercedes. The Silver Arrows have won all constructors championships since 2014 and I don’t remember them being challenged that much by any other team. However, I would…

Monaco GP 2021

After an 1-year break from F1 due to the pandemic, Monaco is returning to the calendar. Although it’s still early days in the championship, we are watching possibly the biggest head-to-head battle in the recent years. Of course, we had Lewis Hamilton vs. Nico Rosberg back in 2016 but this time the reigning world champion is against Max Verstappen from Red Bull. It’s always different to watch drivers from different teams fighting for the top spot of the podium compared…

We became witnesses of another fierce battle between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen last weekend in Portimao and we should be expecting another one this time! Both teams and drivers seem to be performing on their limits so let’s see who will be the first one to crack under that pressure. The upcoming race is in Barcelona, a circuit that all teams know inside-out due to the winter tests conducted here most seasons. Outside the top 3 or 4, Lando…

The championship battle between Hamilton and Verstappen is really tight with a single point separating the two drivers. Red Bull seem to have a faster car and have recently hired a Mercedes engineer to help them improve their power unit after Honda quits F1 at the end of the year. What seemed to be an easy 8th world championship for Lewis, will be the one he must fight hardest for! Championship aside, F1 has unanimously agreed to change the format…

Emilia Romagna GP 2021

After an electrifying Bahrain GP which saw the title contenders, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, fighting each other till the last lap and finishing with +0.745s splitting them, F1 is heading to Imola for the Emilia Romagna GP. This circuit has produced great battles in the past. This season, I’m mostly looking forward to seeing what Yuki Tsunoda can do in the circuit he has done many practice laps in. He already impressed everyone in Bahrain, so he can even…
