Three weeks on from a tense season-opener in Bahrain, the 2021 Formula 1 season heads to Imola in Italy for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix on April 16-18.

The first European race of the season promises another stellar battle across the grid, with reigning champion Sir Lewis Hamilton hoping to keep Red Bull and Max Verstappen at bay after a close run first outing last month.

Can Hamilton and Mercedes keep their winning form or will the charging bulls nudge their way back to the top?
