After another short hiatus, Formula 1 is back in business as it returns to the Eiffel Grand Prix to Nurburging.
Being absent from the calendar since 2013, F1 returns to a glorious place in Nரிrburgring – the home of the intimidating Nordsleaf.
Depending on the time of year, the weather will certainly play its part with the cold and humid conditions expected throughout the weekend.
The Efol Grand Prix refers to a race that sometimes lacks the F1, such as the Imola and Turkey, or the F1 not in places like Portimao before heading to the Middle East to close this unique season.
The Russian F Grand Prix 2020 proved to be a decisive race in the race for the F1 drivers’ title as Voltaire Botas returned to winning ways at the Sochi Autotrome and claimed his second race victory.
Finn had a tough qualifying session, but initially jumped back into the race by overtaking Max Verstappen and then challenged teammate Lewis Hamilton to Turn 1.
What seemed to be in Potas’ favor in this case was that when Hamilton was awarded two separate time penalties for procedural offenses, Bodas and Max Verstappen allowed him to jump through stops.
Postas had his second victory in Russia over Verstappen and Hamilton.
The championship gap now sits at 44 points with seven rounds remaining.
As for the midfield fight, Sergio Perez took the lead in fourth place in Russia – beating Daniel Ricciardo, who was ahead of Renault in fifth place.
McLaren are third in the Builders’ Championship, two points ahead of Racing Point, and five points behind Renault in fifth.
What to expect this weekend?
Pirelli has recommended combinations of C2, C3 and C4 this weekend – this is in Monza and Spa-Francorcomps.
Focus on ‘wet meteorologists’ as rain is expected – Hamilton, Verstappen, Stephen O’Connor and Lance Stroll are often the best at humidity.
