Martin Brundle believes that this year’s 2021 Formula 1 World Championship is going to continue to deliver exciting races and moments.
Max Verstappen leads Lewis Hamilton in the Drivers’ Standings and the pair have gone wheel to wheel in five of the seven races so far. Brundle thinks more drama is set to come.
“This is going to be a season of F1 racing that just keeps on giving,” Brundle wrote in his post-race column for Sky Sports.
“As we march through the practice sessions, qualifying phases, and races it seems to constantly boil down to Max Verstappen versus Lewis Hamilton, and therefore Red Bull versus Mercedes-Benz.”
Mercedes have won the last seven Drivers’ and Constructors’ titles, whilst Red Bull have not challenge for the championship since 2013. It’s a fight which Brundle is loving the due to the intensity of the battle.
“We've been waiting for this through seven hybrid F1 seasons and it appears to be well worth the wait," added Brundle. "This is about speed, consistency, guile, racecraft, calculated risks, and delivering all day every day. I'm really happy to be witnessing it.”
