Bahrain Formula I – 2021 START
And we started, the 2021 – 2022 Formula I season kicked off in Bahrain. I am so looking forward to this season. 2 changes had to be made to the cars, what resulted in slower cars this year: Floor Plate and Aerodynamics, those are the two words that are key this year.
Biggest advantages: Cars will be more competitive. Yes, yes, Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull are still going to dominate but “the knower” says the middle field are going for it. Well, I will sign for it, more competition, would be awesome.
The Free Practices, the Qualification, all showed interesting things already. Max Verstappen our Dutch hope for a Formula I Winner showed first good signs: best in the Training, best in the Qualifications ..... Started Pole Position, good stuff.
This season has 20 drivers going for the first position, 16 return from season 2020 and 4 are swapped for others. Of those 16, 12 are returned to the same team. The drivers that did not return:
New Drivers are:
Yuki Tsunoda (AlphaTauri Rookie)
Mick Schumacher (Haas Rookie)
Nikita Mazepin (Haas Rookie)
Fernando Alonso (Alpine / Formerly Renault)
So, yes I am thrilled for this year. I would love to see at least 4 competing teams for the first 8 positions.
Besides those 8 drivers, I am so much looking forward to Yuki Tsunoda and Mick Schumacher. Mick Schumacher ..... YES, son of legend: Michael Schumacher. He was not THE BEST Driver in the Formula II, but I would love him to succeed. Ferrari with Sainz Jr., is going to be challenging also. Carlos is going to have a fight with all other teams but also with his fellow Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc. Two young guys, not the top yet, will fight for those positions.
Let's see what happens
STAY SAFE ! ! !
