The world was quick to praise the safety features — including the controversial halo — that helped spare the life of the Frenchman, as he ended up in hospital with burns to his hands and ankles, miraculously escaping without further injuries.

In a video on social media, Grosjean said he wasn’t an advocate for the halo when it came into the sport but was definitely behind it now.

McLaren’s social media team has won the internet today.

Formula 1 fans are eager for a glimpse of the team’s new MCL35M, which will be driven by Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo in 2021.

Ricciardo signed with McLaren last year after a disappointing maiden season with Renault in 2019 before rediscovering some form in 2020 with two podiums.

But the Australian driver is set to commence the next phase of his career in orange, with the first race of the 2021 season scheduled for March.

F1 news 2021, Monaco Grand Prix, cancelled, Canada, Azerbaijan, reports, race calendar, latest

Published

on

Monaco Grand Prix organisers have insisted that the iconic Formula One race will go ahead this season, despite whispers that it would suffer a second cancellation in as many years.

Like the Australian Grand Prix last year, the Monaco edition was shelved due to COVID-19 as F1 decided to focus on ready-built circuits to fill the makeshift calendar, rather than temporary street circuits.

And with the Aus GP now being shifted from its traditional home as the season curtain raiser to a new November date, Monaco has now come under the spotlight.

A Dutch newspaper has claimed that Monaco, along with Azerbaijan and Canada, is in danger of being removed from the 2021 calendar as F1 again panics over the street races and the time it takes to build infrastructure for those events given the ongoing COVID pandemic.
