Where are we headed in the F1 2021 season?

Red Bull have dominated over the last two months in the sport, notching up 4 wins in a row with Sergio Perez winning in Azerbajian while Max Verstappen winning in Monaco, France and Styria. Mercedes’ will be very worried about their long-title reign ending having won seven consecutive titles.

Ferrari have also dropped back after a stunning podium for Carlos Sainz at Monaco. Charles Leclerc performed superbly ending in 7th, after going all the way back the standings. McLaren have impressed this season with Lando Norris being the only driver to finish every race this season, while teammate Daniel Ricciardo has disappointed since his move from Renault.

This race seems like a cruical won in the title race and also determining a tight fight for the midfield positions as the heat intensifies in this rollercoaster of a season.
