As is the case every year, there will be plenty of twists and turns throughout the F1 calendar and live betting odds are likely to chop and change based on early season results.
Lewis Hamilton heads into the 2021 season as the defending champion and F1 schedule followers will be trying to predict when the British star will win a record eighth world title.
Driving for one of the most successful F1 teams in recent years, Hamilton has dominated the Drivers’ Championship rankings and he should make a strong start to the F1 calendar.
The Formula One schedule won’t make or break a driver’s season but getting off to a fast start can be the difference between success and failure.
Motorsport teams will want to find out how durable their car is and how the F1 schedule may impact each team for the entire campaign.
It won’t be long before we hear ‘Lights out and away we go’ now – though F1 fans will have to make do with playing Formula 1 video games for the time being.
