F1 2021 Delay: Wake Me Up When September Ends…

#
A few teams have asked for a delay in announcing the F1 2021 regulations, prompting us to dedicate the famous Green Day song to the sport’s legion of fans. 

In this episode, we discuss of the delay in announcing the 2021 regulations, the possible headlines you could still read come 2021 and how Mercedes can achieve even more greatness in Formula 1.

Formula 1 decided to defer the announcement of its 2021 regulations till October this year. The WEC announced their ‘hyper car’ regulations from 2021 just a few days ago. Basically, everyone is leading fans to believe that 2021 is the year when Motorsport will undergo a revolution.

In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we talk of the possible headlines you will still read come 2021. What else could Mercedes do to prove their superiority as a Formula 1 team? If Ricciardo & Hulkenberg had wet dreams of a Ferrari power unit in their Renault car when Fiat Chrysler was talking up Renault and finally, will Formula 1 teams hire ‘gladiators’ instead of drivers for 2021? Tune in!
