One of the most anticipated seasons of the Formula 1. The highest category of World motorsport suffered the serious consequences of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and now he hopes to have a calendar a little more ‘normal’ in 2021. The arrival of new equipment and pilots and the new rules that can modify the 2020 results.
Regulatory changes have yet to come. COVID-19 delayed the plans that the leadership had, they were delayed due to the economic crisis left by the pandemic. Only minor aerodynamic changes could be made, which affected the speed of the cars, making them more similar to those of 2018 (almost three seconds slower). In 2021 the new modifications would arrive, which would leave things more even among all.
There weren’t too many changes in the Formula 1 paddock. If there were transfers between teams, they got everyone’s attention. Three drivers will debut on the first date in Bahrain: Yuki Tsunoda (AlphaTauri), Nikita Mazepin Y Mick schumacher (Haas). The most striking transfers were those of Fernando Alonso to Alpine, Carlos Sainz to Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel to Aston Martin Y Sergio Pérez to Red Bull.
From March 12 to 14, the Formula 1 pre-season tests will take place. The Bahrain circuit will host the tests that historically take place at the Barcelona circuit. The COVID-19 pandemic did not allow this to happen. The first race will be a few weeks later, from March 26 to 28, on the same track, to avoid that the teams have a large travel expense.
This season several historical Formula 1 marks may fall. The first of them and the most important can be achieved. Lewis Hamilton. The Briton may be the top winner in the history of the category, with eight titles. Fernando Alonso he may be the driver who sets the record for the longest time between the first victory of his career and the last. If he succeeded, Alonso would do it 18 years later, something that never happened.
