The 2021 F1 season is shaping up to be one of the most memorable in a long time. With Red Bull emerging from pre-season testing as serious challengers to Mercedes' seven-year championship winning streak, we could be set for a battle of the ages.
Things get underway with an immediate return to Bahrain for the first race of the year, which takes place between the 26th and 28th of March. It is here where every team's true speed will be revealed for the very first time in 2021.
The weekend's action will culminate with the main event on Sunday afternoon, but before that, here are all of the key start times and sessions that you need to know about.
