The 2021 season is underway with the first race this weekend in Bahrain. Will anyone here be watching?

Will Mercedes maintain their dominance, or lose ground to Red Bull?

Announcers: It's extremely difficult to overtake at Imola!

Hamilton: Overtakes 7 of the 8 fastest cars in 26 laps

Botas: Can't deal with Stroll

It will be interesting to see what happens in the US. It's not unheard of to have more than one F1 race per year in the US (I think they used to have two back in the second-half of the 20th Century), but it doesn't seem likely. F1 wants to expand in the US market (viewers, interest, etc.) but there are only so many races on the annual schedule (23 in 2021).

The contract with the Circuit of Americas (Austin, TX) expires after this year and hasn't been renewed. Instead F1 is going to Miami (and apparently part of the support from Texas state funds was exclusivity).

Right now everything seems to point to Miami being the US venue for F1 for the next 10 years. Any other grand prix on American soil would be a surprise.

Every week Mercedes is like, "We really didn't expect to be at the front of the grid" and every week they are, or even set the fastest time on track.

"These tires are shot!" Sets fastest lap

They’re on another level.

I think Verstappen ended up with fastest lap with that last lap run on new tires.

They deleted it because he exceeded track limits on that lap (went out of bounds on turn 14). Bottas got the fastest lap.

Ah, thanks. I turned it off right after the checkers.

Verstappen is the only entertaining part of this season.
I don't even like the guy, but I'm rooting for him just so that the season will end differently for once
