That slo-mo shot of Alonso walking was a perfect segue after the “out of the frying pan and into the fire” line.

Bottas has already proven himself unworthy of a team leader role. His entire career depends on how long Lulu wants to hang around for.

I hope Norris beats Ricciardo and Ocon beats Alonso often enough to stunt those 2 overrated veterans. I also hope Stroll beats Vettel.

My predictions Hamilton will easily beat Bottas Max will beat Perez but not as comfortably as he did Albon same as Danny to Norris.

Verstappen V Perez.... I think Max will make a Mockery out of Perez . I've never rated Perez . Who remembers his season at McLaren...? . He never won a Championship in the lower formulas unless you include "B" Class in British F3 . Hulkenberg should have had that seat. I think Perez will not last the season. Max will out qualify him at every race. Perez will constantly make up silly excuses for not doing well. He's got to get used to the car, He's struggling to get a balance, Him and Max prefer different set ups. Usual rubbish from an ok driver. Max is a World Champion in the making. Perez is an also ran. A bit like Pastor Maldonado (Remember him) One Lucky win but plenty of Money.,,

Sainz and Norris got a hard fight ahead for each of them this year. Max isnt worried about Perez at all. redbull just want a shot at the constructors. Russell’s time will come.

Raikkonen vs. giovinazzi. If Gio wins, he might become Alfa team leader and send Kimi into retirement, whilst if Kimi wins, that's curtains for both unless Alfa want another year of Kimi

Of all drivers mentioned here, Alonso runs by far the biggest risk. If he doesn’t comprehensively beat Ocon from day one, things will turn sour pretty quickly...
wraitheful Månad sedan
Alonso has been out for 200 years, he’s 79 yrs old and was literally out of his league. Ocon is a young F1 driver in a competitive environment working his way through. Alpine secretly hates this (Cyril’s) lineup and prefers that everyone behaves, works together and moves forward quietly and cohesively. Repeating past mistakes will only hurt the entire effort and their drivers need to recognize that. All the new pairings: the ones that work together win. This is going to be a great season.

IMO Sainz v Leclerc not career-defining, at least not in 2021. I'd rather include the Alfa Romeo, where Gio needs to shine vs Raikkonen to save his career.

Alpine: Fernando Alonso will eat out Estaben Ocon. Ferarri: Carlos Sainz will edge on Charles Lecrash. McLaren: Lando Norris will hopefully match Daniel Ricciardo. Mercedes: Hope Bottas earns his achievements. Hope Russel shows his skills. Red Bull: Maximum Verstappen will have support from Sergio Perez.

Stroll over Vettel, Dan over Lando, Ocon on par with Fernando, Charles over Carlos, Hamilton to only go one more year so maybe not battle at all between Russell and Boatass. Checo treated every RB driver from Dan onwards, like crap.....

I disagree Ocon is 'out of the frying pan into the fire', I think its the other way around. I'd be surprised if Alonso beats Ocon over the course of the season, and/or poses a stronger challenge than Ricciardo.

Vettel v Stroll is a key battle too. If Vettel can outperform Lance Stroll as a son, then he might get a permanent seat in the Stroll family, and be able to race in F1 on an indefinite basis.

Mercedes should set the trend, after a certain amount of success with one driver, it’s time to give someone else a shot and prove how much is car and how much is driver. We all know Lewis is great, but prove it. Get in the Williams.

Graham Sivill

I suspect that Sainz will be very close to LeClerc and may do better by consistent driving throughout the year. I think LeClerc has moments of brilliance but his track record from last year is it's interdispersed with many rookie mistakes and I think that is where Sainz is one step ahead of him. I think once Sainz gets settled in and understands the car, there may be fireworks similar to what went on with Vettel with a few broken wings and the odd off unless Carlos can use his experience to avoid clashes. I think if Lewis is back at Merc it will be the same old same old. I think Merc would be foolish to have Hamilton and George Russell together, it will inevitably lead to fireworks, they would be better leaving the team as is for this year, let Hamilton get one more championship so that he can outright beat Schui's championship haul and then I am sure he will either retire to pursue his other interests and go out on a high or perhaps try his hand with a lesser team to try and prove it's not just the Merc car. Then bring in George and see what Valteri can do. I suspect that it may end up the same as with Hamilton, but at least there will be less smashed cars and putting the manufacturers title at risk. I think Ocon will be smoked by Alonso once Alonso gets the car how he wants it. The danger is that it gets silly like Ocon was with Max at Brazil and against Gasly with lots of damaged cars rather than taking a more mature approach and avoiding collisions. I think there could be fireworks at McLaren as Lando tries to beat Dani Ric. I think he would be wise to go gently and try and avoid too many crashes or it may end up like Dani's departure from Red Bull after too much agro. I think Lando may surprise a lot of people and do a lot better against Ricciardo than people are expecting. I just fear it may break down if they have one or two shunts. Red bull I think will work like the current Merc line up, I think Perez will do a brilliant job backing up Max and getting himself firmly in the team. I think the problems may come the following year because once he gets a grip of the Red Bull I think his consistency may show Max up and then it will be back to how Max was with Dani Ricc, with Max far to keen to have a smash rather than driving round the other guy. I still think Max has a hot head that needs calming down. Because he has not been up against Team mates that have pushed him hard since Ricciardo left, he's been pretty quiet but I suspect when Sergio starts putting pressure on him the old smash and grab merchant may be back.

1:31 How can any one call those stats a "decent season". He got raped and humiliated by Ricciardo. Its questionable if he deserves a F1 drive at all after that season Just a single extremly lucky P2 Moment cant save this disaster of a season.

Ocon will outperform alonso Sainz will be a strong backup if the car is up to it Norris will push ricciardo all the time Bottas will perform to a similar standard as he has in the past and George will continue to push his Williams ahead of where it should be.
Utetopia Månad sedan
I sort of hope Perez crushes Verstappen, as I've never really liked Verstappen. But if that happens, that will mean Red Bull will be closer to Mercedes this year than last, and McLaren, who I actually want to see do better than last year, will stay in 3rd, instead of leapfrogging Red Bull into second.

Russell will be in the merc come 2022 . Bottas may be good but he will never be a world champion. He would have to win the championship this year and dominate hamitlon for them to even consider another year but even then hes closer to the end of his career than the start and Russell is Mercedes future
Shakalaka Månad sedan
Alonso will beat Ocon easy. Sainz will be very close to Leclerc but bad "luck" will keep him short. Norris will be close to Ricciardo. Russel will put to much preasures on himself but will get the merc seat and Pérez will be better than expected but no one will notice it Cheers

I’d argue Tsunoda vs Gasly is career defining simply because if Tsunoda is as quick, if not slightly quicker than Gasly, than Gasly may not be held in as high of a regard as he did at the end of last year, which would surely propel Tsunoda into the stratosphere. If it’s the other way around and Tsunoda gets absolutely hammered by Gasly, than Red Bull will surely regret not giving the Alpha Tauri seat to Albon
Gustavo Monteiro

Ocon will be decimated by Alonso, Perez by Verstappen, Sainz by Leclerc, like 17-5 to 20-2 for both. Lando Norris is overrated, couldn't even beat Carlos Sainz and Ricciardo is much better, he'll do a bit better but not much. Probably something around 16-6.
Simon Emms

Ocon can't really win. If he's behind Alonso, it'll be perceived that he's inferior to Alonso. If he beats him, it'll be perceived that Alonso's lost speed on his sabbatical.
Noavaileblenames Månad sedan
I think Norris will be the better driver in the first half of the season. Ricciardo will have to get used to a whole new team and car again. But once he does the gap will go in his favor.
StupidFlandrs48 Månad sedan
These are all important, but the battle we can't let slide under the radar is Raikkonen vs. Giovinazzi over at Alfa Romeo. While it doesn't really have a place in this video because said battle is only consequential for one of the drivers involved, it's still worth noting that 2021 is probably Italian Jesus' last chance to prove to Ferrari that he deserves to stick around, before they abandon him to Formula E and bring in Callum Ilott. The odds are stacked against him within Ferrari, so he'll need to do some difficult things to stay in F1, but it's still possible. Priority 1: Secure 15th place in the drivers' championship. He has the car, he just needs to stave off his teammate, two rookies, a rich Canadian, and our lord and savior George. If he can't do that he probably deserves the boot anyway. Priority 2: Lay waste to the Iceman. Impressive as it was that Gio was able to fight Kimi to a standstill last year, he needs to roundly thrash him to get Ferrari's attention again. Priority 3: Make Q2 on a regular basis, which he's more than capable of doing.

What about Schumacher vs Mazepin, Gasly vs Tsunoda and Vettel vs Stroll...? Especially Vettel vs Stroll, since if Vettel doesn't perform against a average driver like Stroll, he's pretty much done in F1. I mean you guys prefered to put an unconfirmed battle (Bottas vs Russell) over one that is confirmed and could be as interesting as the others? (Vettel vs Stroll).

What about Shumi VS Mazepin? This is very important season which will define career of one of them...

Something tells me that Ocon will beat Olonso all year long. First half of the season will belong to Ocon and by the time olonso is ready, Ocon will be much better like this year with his 2nd place at the end of the season.
