  • F1 2021

    Well Alonso' much anticipated return may be hampered by a cycling accident. Possible broken jaw and is recovering in hospital. Hamilton signed a new contract, well, was there ever any doubt?? Engine specifications have been frozen for the next few years. Will Honda opt back in?? Portimao circuit should be confirmed again this year.

    I'm looking forward to seeing these cars back on track.

    Ah man, that's not good for Alonso.

    I hadn't paid attention to the engine regs. This means Red Bull will take over the Honda engine, right?

      I wonder will Super Hulk be called upon to fill in for Alonso.

      Something else that looks set to be introduced is the Sprint Race on Saturday. It will be roughly 1/3 distance of a full race and should do away with fuel/tyre management.

        The aero is supposed to be simplified too isn't it?

          I like the sprint race idea. The more racing the better pretty much and always good to thrown in some additional complexity for the teams as they're too good at managing races these days.

            Just seen this... https://www.grandprix247.com/2021/02...milton-keynes/

            Reading on some other sites Honda will still be involved in a sort of back seat role. Honda are too conservative and don’t like to take risks. They wanted another year back in 2014 before rejoining the F1 calendar but Ron Dennis convinced them otherwise and see how that turned out, “gp2 engine”. Redbull taking over meaning RB take all the risks, will push the engine more and the 2025 engine regs might see Honda back as the renewable bio fuel era kicks off.

              Is this going to be a Tag Heuer engine perhaps?

                They said they’re open to put a name on the RB Powertrain, but I’m not sure if that will be of their own build for the next era. I can’t see a Honda allowing thei engine being rebadged unless RB completely buys them out.

                  Couldn't care any less at this stage....once they put it behind a paywall I lost any interest. I was a lifelong Mclaren fan but it's too expensive to follow and the sport is more about off track antics than on track racing.

                    There’s not a lot of sport worth watching that is free so... it is what it is.

                            They've already said they're happy with the Honda PU, they need to sort their aero out, the last two seasons they started off worse, they need to hit the ground running and not chasing themselves and then the Mercs.

                            Will be interesting to see if McLaren improve. Williams having the strongest PU on the grid the last few years shows that it's not all PU related and aero chassis balance is key.
