The 2021 Russian Grand Prix brought the great wide world of Formula 1 what it has always been promised before, but never delivered: rain in five. With its Valencia 2012 moment – a not-very loved track producing a fantastic race – those ominous words finally came

GPR Awards – Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix 2021

GPR Awards – 2021 Formula 1 Styrian Grand Prix

Another race, another win for Max Verstappen and Red Bull. At effectively the team’s home race, Verstappen was unbothered pretty much all the way by his closest challenger Lewis Hamilton. Red Bull‘s fourth consecutive victory also marks the biggest win drought for Mercedes in the

GPR Awards – 2021 Formula 1 French Grand Prix

Paul Ricard, not known for its pantheon of great races in the modern era, can proudly pat itself on the back for delivering to the 2021 season an above-average race, serving as the hunting ground for Max Verstappen and Red Bull to take another hit at Lewis Hamilton
