With only 2 points separating the championship contenders and only 7 races to go we are in for a exciting championship battle!

2021 Italian GP

After Super Max thumping loudly in the Zandvoort stands we arrive at Monza for the 2021 Italian GP! Monza featured the 2nd Sprint Race of the Season. While Mercedes were considered the favorites on this track, the race results proved otherwise. We got the surprise McLaren 1-2 with Ricciardo winning and Lando claiming P2. With both Max and Lewis out of the race there was no one to keep the Papaya boys in check. Bottas in the meanwhile was cutting through the field and went on to claim P3.

2021 Hungarian GP

What an anticlimax for the so called heated battle between Max and Lewis. Another race and another Merc eliminates a Red bull. What a crazy race this has been with the grid completely mixed up. What a drive by Ocon and Vettel and who other than the G.O.A.T Lewis Hamilton! Just after 2 races suddenly Mercedes leads the WDC and Hamilton leads the WDC!

As is the theme of 2021, we have had the privilege of watching this banger of a race at Hungaroring.
