2021 F1 thread

There will be a third installment of Netflix's excellent "F1: Drive to Survive" in the next month or so from what I gather.

First race scheduled for March 28th in Bahrain.

Hamilton just renewed his contract but hoping for a bigger tussle among the top contenders.

Hamilton/Bottas, Mercedes

Verstappen/Perez, Red Bull (Honda engine)

Ricciardo/Norris, McLaren (Mercedes engine)

Vettel/Stoll, Aston Martin (formerly Racing Point, Mercedes engine)

Alonso/Ocon, Alpine (formerly Renault)

LeClerc/Sainz, Ferrari


And a few other also ran teams.

The new teams are indeed intriguing.

Fingers crossed they will deliver a very closely fought year.

Who's the kid who would've won in place of Hamilton had he not been sabotaged by the team? Where's he?

Really a shame they kept Hamilton. I mean for what? Guess they want to give him his retirement/farewell tour or something?

Would have been fantastic if he pulled a Rossi and went to McLaren. (home country like Rossi went to Ducati).

Instead no changing of the guard. MEh.

MB and Hamilton will win again. 2022 will be the start of a new era where Max and RB will win. MB comes in second. Ferrari falters again. McLaren and Alpine fight for 3rd. Aston Martin and whatever replaces Haas along with AlfaR, AlfaT and Williams is the rest of the field again.

I am pretty sure Hamilton would not go back to McLaren. However, since he only signed a 1 year deal, I think he is keeping his options open for the big change in 2022. He made a master move from McLaren (arguably the best car on the grid at the time) to Mercedes (somewhat of an also ran team at the time) when the last big rules change happened and we all know what happened in these past years.

Hopefully, more manufactures get the change correct this time and we will see the end of the extreme dominance of one manufacture.

Tons of interesting team changes and at 36 Hamilton is still 3 years younger than Alonso and 5 years younger than Raikkonen.

https://www.bluejean.fr/en/biography/f1-drivers.php

But yes, I'd like to see Hamilton try another team but in his mind's eye I'm sure he feels as if he already did that in his career.

Unlike New England letting Brady go, Mercedes is in no hurry to show him the door.

I'd like to see Hamilton go to RB and team up with Max.
I'd like to see Russell at MB next year.
I think that Sainz is going to be the #1 driver at Ferrari.
I think that Riccardo is going to be on the podium at least 6 times.

Hoping for a fun year.

Surprised Bottas still has his seat.
Lewis will win #8.
Perez will give Max a hard time (can’t wait for his meltdowns).
Vettel with a chance to redeem himself.
Sainz at Ferrari.

Hopefully Covid won’t F things up!

MB power plant should help keep them in the hunt for 3rd place in the constructors.
