If you’re a Formula 1 fan, you already know the numbers. Seven out of ten teams have new driver line-ups for the 2021 Formula 1 season. This means that new driver rivalries will headline this season. Who’d have thunk that Formula 1 might actually give us a Sergio Perez vs. Lewis Hamilton battle.
But of course, Hamilton vs. Max Verstappen will be the blockbuster rivalry to follow. However, we’re eager to see how the mid-field goes. There’s Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo & the Ferrari duo. At the back of the grid, could a Mick Schumacher vs. George Russell be the one to follow? Or will it be a Schumacher vs. Kimi Raikkonen? And don’t leave out Lando Norris in all of this.
As you can see, there are several possibilities and we discuss them in this week’s Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast. Our guest in this episode is Bharat Sharma, Chief Sports Correspondent of the Press Trust of India.
