Waiting is the hardest part of Formula 1.
Perhaps this year is more worth the wait than the last few years: Although Lewis Hamilton had a hot start in the first four races of the year, his unfortunate finish in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and his unsatisfactory performance in Monaco was the door to the 2021 F1 Championship Wide open.
Max Verstappen opened the door for Hamilton to regain the lead in the drivers’ standings after a crash in Baku due to a broken tyre (or tyre, if that’s your business): but an unfortunate brake button problem caused Hamilton to slip off the track And completed the game outside the points, allowing Verstappen’s Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez to get the first place.
This victory allowed Red Bull to lead Mercedes by 26 points in the constructors’ standings, while Verstappen led Hamilton by only 4 points (105 vs. 101) in the drivers’ standings.
