Bahrain GP 2021

Welcome to 2021 F1 season! Despite COVID-19 and all the implications it has had to all of us, F1 circus will be traveling around the globe, starting from Bahrain this weekend. The rules, and therefore the cars, have not changed significantly from 2020 so don’t expect any big surprises there. What has changed are the driver line-ups! My personal biggest excitement is Alonso returning to F1 with the team he won his two world championships. Although the team has been…

Abu Dhabi GP 2020

Yas Marina circuit will be hosting the final race of 2020 this weekend. Both championships have been decided but the battle for the 3rd place on the constructors championship is still under contention from Racing Point, McLaren and Renault. While Russell gave a splendid performance in Sakhir last week, Bottas was admittedly under-performing. In any case, Hamilton will be back in his car for the last race of the season.

Sakhir GP 2020

Everyone has watched numerous replays of Grosjean’s shocking accident in the previous race. He crashed with an estimated speed of 221km/h and withstood an impact of 53G! In the past decades, we would me mourning yet another victim but Romain managed to escape from the wreckage and get out of the car himself thanks to the modern F1 technology and halo. Apart from that, Lewis Hamilton, who won the last race, was tested positive for COVID-19 and won’t be taking…

Bahrain GP 2020

Both championships may have been decided with three races to spare, since Lewis Hamilton became F1 world champion for the 7th time in Turkey, but the battle for the 4th position in the driver standings and for the 3rd in the constructors standings is truly on! Given Ferrari’s resurgence in the last few races, I would expect them to be fighting for a podium in this race. A race that Leclerc lost last year due to an engine cylinder issue….

Turkish GP 2020

The first Turkish GP happened back in 2005 and it was actually the first F1 race that I managed to attend in person. I saw Michael Schumacher spinning in qualifying at turn 9 and I was at turn 12, the end of the back straight, during the race. Great memories! This race returns to F1 after 9 years and the circuit includes the famous quadruple-apex turn 8 which drivers expect to take flat-out in modern F1 machinery. Everything looks set…

Emilia Romagna GP 2020

F1 returns to the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari in the town of Imola. This is the circuit where Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger lost their lives in 1994. The last F1 race was held in 2006 where Michael Schumacher won, reaching 7 wins in that circuit. His fastest time in qualifying was 1:22:579 which I expect to get smashed by the current generation of F1 cars. Of the current drivers, only Kimi has ever driven this circuit before….

Portuguese GP 2020

Portimao and Algarve International Circuit will be hosting their first ever Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend. Portugal has not hosted an F1 race since 1996 in Estoril. If Lewis Hamilton wins, he will reach 92 victories and become the man with most wins in F1 history. It’s actually a matter of ‘when’, not ‘if’, Lewis achieves this. Will this record ever be broken? Definitely! It will take quite some time though I guess. Please share the post:

Eifel GP 2020

Honda leaving F1 at the end of 2021 will be the biggest news in the upcoming race in Nurburgring. This means that Red Bull and Alpha Tauri will be looking for a new engine supplier, otherwise they have to produce their own engine. Mercedes is unlikely to provide engines to their main championship rivals, Ferrari has pretty much the worst engine this year while the Red Bull-Renault relationship has reached a low point after their break up in 2018. Big…

Russian GP 2020

After the mayhem at Mugello which saw two red flags, F1 is heading to Russia and to the Sochi Autodrom – a race where Mercedes drivers have triumphed every year since 2014. A lot of discussion in the paddock will be around the safety measures that should be taken to prevent another Mugello-like accident and what needs to be changed in the safety car procedures. Besides that, ex-Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali will be the next F1 CEO and this means…

Tuscan GP 2020

The Tuscan GP will be the first ever F1 GP held in Mugello circuit – a track that is owned by Ferrari which uses it for testing. The official lap record if 1:39.07 achieved by Riccardo Patrese in 1985 driving a Lancia LC2. I’m sure F1 cars will lap in under 1:20. After a crazy Italian GP, can F1 give us another unpredictable race? Please share the post:
