Formula 1 drivers and teams 2021: Aston Martin returns, Renault marks the new F1 season
The 2021 Formula 1 driver’s grille is almost clear to turn off the lights.
The last empty seat belonged to the Mercedes team, but after waiting a few months, Lewis Hamilton will return to the wheel of a Mercedes that will come in the 2021 season. Group director Toto Wolff recently said that some “curves” have been thrown in the process of reaching an agreement, but the two sides met in early February to reach an agreement.
Christian Buller of Red Bull has pondered who will decide who Max Maxttappen’s pair will be for the 2021 season as rumors make their way to the truth as Sergio Perez, a former Racing Point, moves on to Red Bull. Alex Albon is without a team and a car for this coming year.
The F1 world took on a bit of a future flavor when driver George Russell Williams got into a Mercedes car when Hamilton sat down after testing positive for coronavirus. Although Russell is expected to be in the wheel of a Mercedes in the future, it doesn’t look like that year will be in 2021.
Luckily and sadly, the pairing of Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz has split into a very entertaining one, with Sainz taking a seat next to Charles Leclerc in a Ferrari. Former runner Sebastian Vettel Ferrari arrived at Aston Martin, formerly Racing Point, in 2021.
