F1 Racing 2021 – Europe

What a year 2020 has been: Covid19 has really challenged the F1 organisers, who were still able to come up with a somewhat reduced schedule, nevertheless, there were some great races! To stage these races without spectators was another great challenge, not just for the organisers but for the drivers and their teams as well. After all: what is a podium worth, if there’s no adoring and chanting crowd to celebrate with?

Anyway, despite all those stumbling blocks, we’ve witnessed history in the making: Lewis Hamilton becoming world champion for the 7th time, equalling F1 legend Michael Schuhmacher title record, and 165 podiums, and he’s still got more mileage in him – amazing! We’ve also watched he’d some crazy crashes, but are eternally grateful to modern technology and developments in car safety, saving Romain Grosjean’s life in Bahrain. The relief of watching him walk through those flames to get away from the car was overwhelming!

2021 will see quite a few changes in rules and regulations in F1, like overall improvements to car designs and minimising loss in downforce through better aerodynamics, allowing air flow to coming off the cars quicker. The F1 organisers also want to see change to fairer finances amongst the various teams, setting a cost cap go $175m per team to avoid unfair advantages of the cars across the grid. There will be revised race weekends and less wind tunnel testing, so be prepared to see quite a few newer and more developed aspects to F1 racing. On top of that, Honda is set to leave F1 by the end of 2021, shock-horror, and the team BWT Racing Point will change its name to Aston Martin, making all our James-Bond-loving-hearts beat just that much faster – it’s all super exciting, so stay tuned to see them unfold for a safer, fairer future.
