Formula 1 was one of the sports that underwent significant changes in 2020. However, in 2021, the expectation is that the calendar for one of the main racing modalities in the world will be maintained as planned, and that there will be even more competitiveness among the drivers.
But what to expect from the Formula 1 championship in 2021, a sport that has Lewis Hamilton as one of its biggest winners in history. After all, the Mercedes driver has won 6 of the last 7 editions of Formula 1. But is he the favorite again for another year of this sport?
Will Lewis Hamilton be able to beat Schumacher's title record?
The great expectation of the year 2021 will be for possible record breaking of the great pilot Michael Schumacher. After all, there is still no driver who is a direct competitor to Lewis Hamilton in the current Formula 1 seasons. The UK driver has already shown that he has a lot of quality and a well-calibrated car, and his competitors have not yet managed to reach his level.
According to Formula 1 statistics, Lewis Hamilton has already surpassed hepta champion Michael Schumacher throughout the history of this sport. After all, the German has a podium percentage of 50.32%. The Englishman managed to reach the incredible mark of 62.03% of podiums in his entire history.
Hamilton also stands out in the winning percentage. His efficiency on the tracks is far superior to that of Schumacher. While Michael achieved a winning percentage of 29.55% in all of his 308 races, Lewis reached over 35% in 266 tracks that he participated in, evidencing his quality and ability to pass the German's 7 titles.
The big dispute is between Schumacher and Hamilton when it comes to the number of titles. After all, both the English and the German won 7 titles, a mark that only the two champions have managed to achieve. While Michael is out of the running, the expectation is that in 2021 Lewis will be able to pass in front of the German idol.
Besides Lewis Hamilton, who else can be a Formula 1 champion in 2021?
Formula 1 has shown great disputes between the riders. Lewis Hamilton was the great champion of the last editions, but there are other runners who also deserve to be highlighted among fans of this sport. A good example is Valtteri Bottas, who managed to reach second place in 2020.
The Finnish scored 233 points and was ahead of Max Verstappen, who took third place. Verstappen also performed well, reaching 214 points. And another name that also needs to be remembered is that of Sebastian Vettel. Even though the German did not do so well in 2020.
Vettel had good results over the last few editions of Formula 1, and will certainly need to be respected by the other riders in 2021. And the same is true for Kimi Raikkonen, after all, the Finnish managed to reach 3rd place in 2018, when he was still racing for Ferrari . However, since he started at Alfa Romeu, he has not yet scored.
Vettel is definitely a runner with a good chance of being the leader of the Formula 1 2021 predictions. As the German took first place in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. However, in 2019 he did not perform well and in 2020 the situation got even worse. However, one cannot ignore the fact that Vettel is a strong candidate to be among the first place.
What to expect from Alonso?
Alonso's return is definitely a separate attraction in Formula 1 2021. The Spaniard has decided to return in full force at Renault. After a tour of the IndyCar Series and the Dakar Rally, Fernando decided to return to Formula 1 and this is definitely bad news for Lewis Hamilton.
When racing for Renault, Alonso achieved great results, always being among the 10 best drivers in Formula 1. In addition, in 2005 and 2006 the Spaniard took the title of the tracks. However, the truth is that, regardless of who the champion is, there will be a lot of competition among the drivers and a lot of emotion for the spectators.
