2021 F1 World Championship: The future is the present

The great delay

2021 should have been a year of great and profound changes in F1, both governance and ruling-wise. However, the still rampaging Covid-19 pandemic forced Liberty Media to postpone the introduction of the new regulations to 2022, except for a few minor variations such as banning the Dual-Axis System, a.k.a. Mercedes’ umpteenth contraption, and mandating the reduction of the downforce by 10%. With a premise like this, one could argue that the year of the long-waited ruling renovation will be a mere copy of 2020, maybe even more boring and predictable. While this could be true, at least in terms of the Championship battle, it is not so unlikely that we will witness a more intense and animated midfield. Surely, the token system won’t allow anyone to reach Mercedes or to introduce many impactful innovations in the areas subjected to that system, but Power Units and certain aspects of aerodynamics can be modified without spending tokens, thus we could probably see Ferrari were they used to be in 2019,clashing against Red Bull for the position immediately behind the Silver Arrows (or Black Arrows, Hamilton will decide). Nevertheless, We should not underestimate McLaren, since their cars will be powered by a Mercedes Power Unit and they have been granted permission to further change their 2021 vehicle to adapt the chassis for the new motor, and Aston Martin, whose project seems to be founded on solid economic and technical bases, not to mention their great ambition evidenced by hiring a four-time World Champion like Sebastian Vettel.

The greatest battle for the lowest step

As already said in the previous paragraph, the lack of revolutionary regulation changes won’t necessarily mean that 2021 will be an uninteresting carbon-copy of the current Championship, since many teams, from Red Bull to Ferrari, could be very similar performance-wise. Moreover, every team in that range will line up an ace-driver that should be capable of competing against the others for the third seat: Red Bull with Verstappen, Aston Martin with Vettel, Ferrari with Leclerc, McLaren with Ricciardo and last but not least Alpine (Renault new name) with Alonso. Someone could even argue that even minor team like Haas and Alfa Romeo will have their ace-drivers, Perez and Schumacher/Raikkonen respectively (it is still not clear which will be Mike’s destination). Betting who is going to claim the unofficial title of “F1.5 World Champion” is almost impossible, but Verstappen seems to be a little ahead of his competitors since it is very unlikely that Red Bull won’t improve as much as the other aforementioned teams. If I were to make a prediction, I would say that the final placings will be like this: Verstappen-Vettel-Leclerc-Ricciardo-Alonso.
