2021 British GP

The 2021 British GP gave us a lot to discuss about! Max had a horrible 51G crash! Hamilton who caused the crash went ahead to win the race even with a 10 Second time penalty! If the Championship battle was heating up earlier, we think it just went Nuclear after this weekend. The Gloves are off between Max and Lewis.

Even though the crash between Hamilton and Max overshadowed everything, there was great performance put up by Charles by leading the race for 50 laps in a very under powered Ferrari, while managing an engine issue.

2021 Austrian GP

The 2021 Austrian GP has brought out total annihilation by Redbull showing that there is probably an incoming Redbull domination era! The double header at the Red Bull Ring produced a somewhat boring first and a nailbiting second race! Seems like Redbull and Max are starting to steal the lunch money from Mercedes and Lewis. Seems like Mercedes just do not have answers for their failure to match Red Bull’s pace!

2021 Azerbaijan GP

Well Done Baku! The 2021 Azerbaijan GP was a blistering, blasting race, where neither of the contenders, Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, for the driver’s championship were able to score any points. One due terrible choices made by Pirelli and the other due to his own undoing. What an unexpectedly exciting race it has been. Congratulations to Sergio Perez, Sebastian Vettel and Pierre Gasly to get podium positions for the 2021 Azerbaijan GP.

Unexpected tire failures for Lance Stroll and Max Verstappen turned the race over its head and gave us such an unexpected results.

2021 Portuguese GP

The 2021 Portuguese GP was held at the uniquely undulating Autódromo Internacional do Algarve commonly known as  Portimão Circuit.

After 2 blistering races to start the 2021 Season on a high note, the 2021 Portuguese GP was certainly a lot less eventful though not devoid of exciting on track action.
