49 Formula 1 and MotoGP returns for 2021 season

Cover for Formula 1 and MotoGP returns for 2021 season

Formula 1 is back for a 23 race season, starting today with Bahrain Grand Prix free practice and continuing throughout summer, fall and early winter.

This will be first season fully planned to comply with various covid restrictions and we will not see same track used for two consecutive weekends like we did last year, when there was real danger of not being able to host races in multiple jurisdictions due to proliferating lockdowns.

2021 season will also feature brand new Grand Prix location - Saudi Arabia. It will be first for the kingdom to host a Formula 1 race and it will be first for the Formula 1 cars to race on a brand new street circuit in Jeddah - city I know about only because of the ambitious Kingdom Tower project - worlds tallest skyscraper currently under construction.

MotoGP season 2021 will also start this week, with first two races over two consecutive weekends held at Losail International Circuit in Qatar.

Both Formula 1 and MotoGP will not have significant regulation changes this year compared to last. Notable change in Formula 1 is McLaren returning to Mercedes engines.

I absolutely agree.
This season is the first in many years when I really watch the races with interest. It even reminded me of legendary Senna vs Prost showdowns.
Knowing Max, I'm sure that in the next races, Lewis will get an answer if the opportunity happens.

I've noticed lately that Hamilton's Merc hasn't got off the mark as well as others and when you watch the race from the start they're both fighting for position at the first few corners and then it all goes to shit for Max. Personally i couldn't give a rats who wins but things are happening so fast that a split second decision can end in tears. For me it's a racing incident and for a few moments it was the kind of close racing that i want to see rather than a procession.

the era of heroes are long gone, todays f1 drivers will cry in the radio, go to the papers and to court to win a championship

Ah yes i remember the Senna/Prost contest well especially the collision between them which ended in huge controversy. No social media back in those days for the whingers to have a cry on.

The Azerbaijani Grand Prix races seems to be the most fun among others in recent years.

Modern F1 cars are so boring compared to F1 cars 15 years ago...

 

Edit: If once aliens came to our planet and asked that what's the best thing we ever created, I would show them a V10 Formula-1 car :D

What I'd love is for the new teams (Alpine and Aston Martin) to smash the competition and shake things up a little.

The teams aren't really new, they just have new names. And from what I've seen in the first race it might be difficult for both of them to hang on with the best from the midfield. Let's see how things go. One thing for sure, both Alpine and AM look gorgeous with their liveries.

Absolutely, I just thought it would be nice to see a change at the top.

Team names these days are used as advertising stands. One day it is team Aston Martin, the next day it could be team Mickey Mouse, if Disney decided to invest.

If Disney invest I will sue someone

Sue for psychological damages caused to you by attaching silly sponsor names to teams of your favorite sport, and ask for 100 million USD in compensation :)

Could be a great season - war between Hamilton and Verstappen and what I suppose will be even better: The war between the midfield teams!

"ambitious Kingdom Tower project - worlds tallest skyscraper currently under construction." Very ambitious given that nothing has happened in 3 years..
