2021 has registered so far six different winners – never so many after 2012 – and four teams that have been able to hear their national anthem at the end of a Grand Prix. In addition to the obvious Red Bull and Mercedes, Alpine in Hungary and McLaren in Monza carve out a memorable Sunday, with the papaya-colored team even giving themselves a double with Daniel Ricciardo ahead of Lando Norris, a riot that brought the patron Zak Brown even tattooed the temple of speed on his left arm so as not to forget that magical Sunday dated 12 September 2021.
The appeal is missing Ferrari, who is not celebrating a victory since the 2019 Singapore Grand Prix, when Sebastian Vettel preceded Charles Leclerc on a Sunday full of controversy at Ferrari as the German took the lead thanks to the strategy against the Monegasque. This season Charles Leclerc tasted success in Great Britain at Silverstone, a faded victory in the final in front of an irresistible recovery from Lewis Hamilton. Another big regret for the 1997 class is the home Grand Prix of Monaco, where the pole position was lost due to the failure of a hub carrier during the grid following the accident at the Variante delle Piscine that had Leclerc as protagonist in the final of Q3.
The appointment in Mexico in the next appointment of the 2021 calendar could be the great opportunity for the men in red to return to playing the Mameli anthem. Team principal Mattia Binotto will not follow the team to Mexico City in order not to leave Maranello at a crucial moment in the genesis of the 2022 car, but the ingredients to see a competitive SF21 are all there. “Hermanos Rodriguez has curves long from medium speeds, the ones on which the reds performed best this year. And above all the rarefied air given by the altitude (Mexico City is 2200 meters above sea level) forces the maximum aerodynamic load which however does not penalize the speed. – we read in today’s edition of The Gazzetta dello Sport – the raw power of the engine, however, matters less. For this: in Mexico or never “.
