A New Arrival To The Schedule
Miami is the new event to be scheduled next year on May the 8th at The Hard Rock Stadium on a ten-year contract and the last time a formula one race was held in Florida was way back in 1959, great to see it back in the Sunshine State (the weather should be good at least) . The following races will see back-to-back in Spain and Monaco our showboat event which is expected to change its format to FRI/SAT/SUN instead of having practice sessions on the Thursday. The British and Austrian grand prix maybe swapped around and the week after these 2 there is France/Italy event at the Paul Ricard or Imola, hosted on the 17th of July. The whole season will come to a finale slightly earlier than 2021 with the Abu Dhabi GP being held in November the 20th. The teams have yet to hear of the confirmation of the Final pre-season testing dates and venues.
What's Changing in the Teams
Some of the drivers have been confirmed, for example Mercedes - Lewis Hamilton is staying, but teammate Valtteri Bottas has been replaced by 23-year-old British Driver George Russell on a "long-term deal" to make it 1-2 Brit Pack for Mercedes. The main contender for the Mercedes crown this year is Red Bull and Max Verstappen is staying, still with 2 years of his contract to go, but the other place is up for grabs because Sergio Perez contract runs out at the end of 2021. Though Perez looks likely to continue with Red Bull due to his current form and there is not a great selection of junior drivers at the team to choose from. Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo look to be staying what with the continual improvements the team has seen over the recent years. Ferrari also look likely to keep to the same format, though they do have a great young driver programme developing and some good prospects for the future including current F1 drivers Antonio Giovinazzi and Mick Schumacher.
