F1 2021

Post by Lemming »

To any fellow fans of watching cars go round and round in circles.

In amongst all of the strangeness of last year, I found the cobbled-together F1 season a bit of light relief.
With the new season about to start, excitement is rising.
From a combination of wishful thinking, watching which teams are smiling and testing times, my guesses are:

McLaren have closed the gap to the front.

Red Bull are looking good and the Honda engine has improved, to the benefit of Red Bull and AlphaTauri.

Aston Martin have gone backwards and have the weakest drivers (excluding the rookies).

Just for fun, this is my prediction of the pecking order going into the first race:

Red Bull
Mercedes
McLaren
AlphaTauri
Alpine
Ferrari
Aston Martin
Alfa Romeo
Williams
Haas

As of today I'd say

Battle for 1st: Red Bull vs. McLaren vs. Merc
Battle for 4th: Ferrari vs. AlphaTauri
Battle for 6th: Alpine vs. Aston Martin vs. Alfa Romeo
9th Williams
10th Haas

Recipe for a good season maybe. Race on!

Impressive, Lem.... So close.

Looking like a fun season if Bahrain was anything to go by...

Thought max might be in for a shot, but i never rule Lewis out... Arguably, the Red Bull is the better car this year, so maybe Lewis will get a little more credit; but my interest was in Perez... Obviously, the car is suited to Max, but Sergio has an ability to improve consistently, and raced a blinder considering his issues.

Midfield looks fairly even, with some awesome drivers mixed in there...

Thought Lando might get a podium, too... He's got a decent teammate, and looks far stronger than him... Fingers crossed for another Brit winner.

Aside from that;

Mazipin needs help,
Vettel needs Webber,
& Tsunoda needs his own Drive to Survive episode.

Finally, RIP Murray! :( "...Go, Go, Go!"

Close? I think I underestimated Ferrari quite a bit.
I think McLaren still look superior to Ferrari but they're closer than I expected.
AlphaTauri look clear of the pack too.
That just leaves Alpine, Aston Martin and Alfa Romeo in the midfield, rendering that term obsolete.
Lando Norris (affectionately known as Spotty Boy around here) is doing a heroic job.
All the ingredients for a great season. :D
