Australian GP 2022

Ferrari’s drivers, Leclerc and Sainz, sit on the top of the drivers standings after two races in the new generation cars. Of course, Verstappen and Perez had a DNF and lost several points – still, Ferrari has more than double the points of the closest competitor. Due to restrictions and logistical challenges relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Melbourne GP was cancelled in 2021 but returns this year with several changes in its layout and four DRS zones! How…

Saudi Arabian GP 2022

After an amazing Ferrari show in the opening race of the new era, the next GP is held in Saudi Arabia. A circuit that produced a great show and lots of controversy in 2021. This time the dynamics have changed with Mercedes and Lewis trying to get on top of their new car issues. In contrast, the Ferraris seem to have interpreted the new regulations pretty well and have possibly delivered a championship-worthy car. Still, it is very early days…

Bahrain GP 2022

New season, new cars, new champion……. Hmm, I’m not really sure about the last one since FIA has practically recognized that Masi’s decision in Abu Dhabi GP was wrong by firing him and therefore robbed Lewis his 8th world championship. Nevertheless, the new F1 era with heavily revised cars will bring more opportunities for cars to race closer but also provides teams with a chance to start car design from a blank sheet of paper. That’s why we’ve seen many…

Abu Dhabi GP 2021

The title decider is approaching! Max and Lewis are exactly level on points going to the final race of the season – something that has happened only once again in F1 history. In an exciting yet farcical Grand Prix in Saudi Arabia where Verstappen drove recklessly, Hamilton proved why he is a 7 times world champion by taking a victory with a heavily damaged car. I don’t want to keep discussing about this. The only thing I’m hoping for is…

Saudi Arabian GP 2021

Eight points separate the title contenders with just two races remaining. Lewis has the momentum but Max is the only one who can clinch the world title in the upcoming race. The Saudi Arabian race will be the fastest street track with the cars expected to have an average speed in excess of 250km/h (~160 mph) – something that might favor the Mercedes cars. In case Lewis wins and takes the fastest lap point with Max finishing second, F1 will…

Qatar GP 2021

A personal issue did not allow me to post my predictions for the Brazilian Grand Prix but F1-predictor is returning this week. Hamilton delivered a masterclass and despite being given a 25-place grid penalty (20 in the sprint race and another 5 in the Sunday race), he managed to win the race by a comfortable margin. Mercedes seem to have unlocked new potential in their car and the last 3 races will be a spectacle for all F1 fans!

Mexican GP 2021

F1 is approaching a triple-header with Mexico, Brazil and Qatar hosting 3 races in the next 3 weekends. At least the first two of those circuits should better suit the Red Bull cars but Mercedes should try their best in order to keep the constructors and drivers championship battle alive. Perez will be the home favourite this week. Will he have to give a home victory to Verstappen in case he leads and Max is 2nd?

United States GP 2021

The championship lead has changed once more this season after Lewis’ 5th place in the Turkish GP. Max is 6 points ahead with six 6 races to go but Mercedes is in the top of the constructors title – partly due to Bottas’ victory in the last race. The upcoming race is held in the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas in a race that is predicted to be exciting. Daniel Ricciardo will also have the chance to…

Turkish GP 2021

In dramatic fashion, Lando Norris missed his first-ever Formula 1 victory in Sochi two weeks ago. Hamilton snatched the opportunity and got ahead in the drivers standings while Verstappen finished 2nd starting from the back of the grid. This weekend, F1 heads to Istanbul – a circuit I was lucky to visit back in 2005 – a place that held an amazing race last year due to wild weather conditions. This time around, finishing out of points is not an…

Russian GP 2021

Mercedes have won every single Grand Prix in Sochi, Russia since 2014 so they are definitely the favorites for the upcoming race. Valtteri Bottas, after being confirmed that it is his last season with the team, is on a good form and will try to take one more race win before going to the midfield Alfa Romeo. Meanwhile, the margin of losing further points for both Hamilton and Verstappen is getting smaller. Hamilton has a big chance to make up…
