F1 2021 Belgian GP: Timetable and race schedule.

A growing Ferrari shows up at Spa-Francorchamps with its head held high to redeem the shame of 2020

At the weekend the Formula One turbos will return to hiss after a month off. Archived the summer break, the Circus is preparing for a long tour de force until December. Clearly the strong theme is related to the furious fight between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen for the conquest of the World Championship, but elsewhere there are reasons for interest. Ferrari, for example, is playing for third place in the constructors’ standings with McLaren. The Maranello team and the Woking team are literally paired, so they are in full tussle for the lowest step of the podium of the world ranking reserved for teams.

It should be noted that the Prancing Horse, somehow, is back from two consecutive podiums, which have brought the seasonal total to three, thus equaling the final spoils of 2020. Moreover, the Reds have already scored 163 points in eleven races, surpassing the 131 collected in the seventeen GP last year. So it is a Ferrari already certain to close 2021 growing from every point of view, with all due respect to those who, after the Spanish GP, had generated a specious controversy emphasizing how they had not yet arrived placements in the top-three, remembering that instead in the first four races of 2020 two had been collected. A gratuitous malice towards the Scuderia di Maranello, since it was clear that the SF21 was much more competitive than the SF1000.

(The Spa-Francorchamps track requires a very performing engine and the qualifying lap will be greatly influenced by the use of the DRS)

In short, Spa 2020 was in all ways a Caporetto that announced another debacle in Monza. Precisely for this reason the Scuderia di Maranello is called to a redemption in the Belgian GP. There is to cancel the horrendous performance of a year ago, in the hope that the final part of the season can also reserve the joy of victory.

Japan gp cancelled: the decision due to the pandemic

The Japanese Gp will not be part of the 2021 Formula 1 calendar. The Suzuka stage, initially scheduled for the weekend of October 10, was canceled due to the Covid-related situation in the Asian country. To announce the cancellation of the Japanese Gp was the same Formula 1 through an official note:

“Following ongoing discussions with the promoter and authorities in Japan, the Japanese government has decided to cancel the race this season due to the ongoing complexities of the pandemic in the country. Formula 1 is now working on the details of the revised calendar and will announce the final details in the coming weeks. Formula 1 has shown this year and in 2020 that we can adapt and find solutions to the ongoing uncertainties and is excited about the level of interest in the places that will host the Formula 1 events this year and in those to follow”.

Qatar ready to replace Japan

After skipping the Suzuka race, the most likely alternative is that of the GP in Losail on the same date as the missed appointment in Australia, that is to say for November 21st. Liberty Media is also ready to include a second race in Bahrain to ensure a calendar of at least 21 world championship events.

The cancellation of the event has put Liberty Media under pressure, since after the trip to Istanbul all British insiders cannot return home without the prospect of where to comply with a strict quarantine for those coming from Turkey.

Hence the need to replace the Japanese GP with an alternative venue, and Bahrain is potentially able to meet all the needs of the case.
