I will be updating this post throughout the 2021 season


The 23 race season is set to start in Bahrain on the weekend starting 26th March. The first in many years to open at a track other than Albert park, Australia which due to Covid has been moved to 19-21st November.

Additions to this year are Imola, which stepped up to host a Grand Prix last year and The Netherlands which had its debut race cancelled last year.





Driver Line ups:


Mercedes: Lewis Hamilton / Valtteri Bottas

Red Bull: Max Verstappen / Sergio Perez

Mclaren: Daniel Ricciardo / Lando Norris

Aston Martin: Sebastian Vettel / Lance Stroll

Alpine: Fernando Alonso / Esteban Ocon

Ferrari: Carlos Sainz Jr / Charles Leclerc

AlphaTauri: Daniil Kvyat / Yuki Tsunoda

Alfa Romeo: Kimi Raikkonen / Antonio Giovinazzi

Haas: Nikita Mazepin / Mick Schumacher

Williams: George Russell / Nicholas Latifi





Car reveals

February 15 - McLaren - Woking



February 19 - AlphaTauri - Virtual

Formula One team Scuderia AlphaTauri served up a stylish preview of the new F1 season with a presentation of its 2021 livery alongside key looks from the upcoming Autumn/Winter 2021 collection of Red Bull's premium fashion brand, AlphaTauri.

After a successful first season racing in AlphaTauri colours, the Italian outfit is looking to challenge the top of the ultra-competitive midfield in 2021, and the two young drivers have been assigned clear-cut roles. Gasly is Team Leader. The 25-year-old, who made his Formula One debut with the team in 2017 under its former name, Scuderia Toro Rosso, has earned two F1 podiums. During the 2020 campaign, Gasly's maiden win at Monza was a defining moment for him and the team under its new name.
Tsunoda, 20, is the first Japanese driver to race in F1 since 2014, his promotion coming off the back of a fast, four-season trajectory from winning the 2018 F4 Japanese Championship and finishing third in the 2020 FIA F2 Championship to entering the top-level ranks this year. Expectations are high for his rapid style of learning to complement the experience of Gasly.

February 22 - Alfa Romeo - Warsaw

One of the only unchanged driver line-ups on the grid from last season, Kimi Rikknen and Antonio Giovinazzi were both on hand to reveal the new car that features subtle tweaks from its predecessor.

On first viewing, the new C41 has a redesigned front nose cone, moving to a narrower Mercedes-like design featuring a rounded shape and pointed tip, with new vanes on either side of the leading edge leading to the cape and bargeboard area.

23 February - Red Bull - Virtual

If we then look at the actual structural changes of the RB16B, we quickly come to the conclusion that the car looks almost identical to the RB16. In the front there is a little more curvature in the elements of the forewings, the nostrils are somewhat larger and the wings on either side of the nose are placed a little higher. And with the bargeboards, the upright wings are slightly pulled back.

However, they are minor differences, especially if you compare that with the changes to the nose that Alfa Romeo presented yesterday. Because the floor has of course undergone major changes due to the changes in the regulations, it could well be that we will see larger changes to the nose in a month's time. The air flows towards the new floor start at the nose and perhaps Red Bull does not want to let itself be looked into the cards yet.

As expected. Lewis Hamilton has stayed on with Mercedes. However it's only a 1 year contract meaning this could possibly be his last season in F1. I will assume it's because he wants to see what their 2022 car will look like for the new regulations and have the option to extend or leave teams or the sport entirely.

There was an article published about it.
One indication that Hamilton intends to stay with Mercedes beyond 2021 is the creation of a charitable foundation to improve diversity and inclusion in motorsport as part of the new contract. Both Mercedes and Hamilton were F1's core champions of such causes in 2020, but such change is very much a long-term commitment.

Yes thank you I did see this a little while after I had posted. I also read that they just got the 1 year out of the way and will talk 22 and beyond later this year. Either way, pretty interesting to me

To be honest, it'll probably be his last year in Formula 1 as a driver.

Updated with pictures and article of the first car to be revealed. McLaren has shown off their brand new car MCL35M which now boasts the Mercedes engine. How well do you think McLaren will do this year?

I am sure he will stay for more than 1 year, he loves the sport.
