Formula 1 returned to Italy to race at Monza, the Temple of Speed, this past weekend with a hotly contested world title in the balance.

Verstappen Reigns Supreme At His First Dutch GP: F1 2021

Mercedes Unable To Respond To Verstappen’s Pace In Austrian GP: F1 2021

The most interesting part for back-to-back races at the same circuit with no changes to the layout is that the second one is more competitive as teams incorporate lessons learned from the previous weekend. With that preconception in mind, we expected Mercedes-Benz to be closer to Max Verstappen who had smoked them in the Styrian … Continue reading Mercedes Unable To Respond To Verstappen’s Pace In Austrian GP: F1 2021

Verstappen Gets Payback On Hamilton At French GP: F1 2021

The Paul Ricard Circuit is not a fan-favourite in F1 with its red and blue stripes in place of grass or gravel for the run-off areas.

Like the Spanish GP at Barcelona, the French GP at Paul Ricard … Continue reading Verstappen Gets Payback On Hamilton At French GP: F1 2021

Baku Always Delivers! Perez Wins, Vettel & Gasly On Podium: F1 2021

Verstappen Takes Top Step At Monaco As Leclerc’s Curse Continues: F1 2021

Hamilton Outpaces Verstappen At Spanish GP After 100th Pole Start: F1 2021

The Catalunya circuit is a great driver's circuit but also notorious for delivering dull races. Its long sweeping bends make it difficult for the aero-heavy F1 cars to follow each other closely and the lack of hard braking zones also robs drivers of overtaking opportunities. The Spanish GP is often decided by qualifying results and … Continue reading Hamilton Outpaces Verstappen At Spanish GP After 100th Pole Start: F1 2021

Hamilton Dominates At Windy Portimao (Again) To Win Portuguese GP: F1 2021

F1 returned to Portugal in 2020 after a long hiatus with the Algarve International Circuit of Portimao hosting the series for the first time.
