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.

V8 Supercars 2021: Bathurst 500 practice 2, Macauley Jones crash, news, video, highlights, times,

Published

The Chase is the most famous corner in Australian motorsport – the brutal, brilliant turn at Mount Panorama that forces Supercars to slow from over 300 km/h down to 110 km/h before making a near-90-degree left bend.

But Bathurst was wreaking havoc on the first day of practice for the 2021 season, with a raft of cars sent into the protective gravel after missing the turn.

In second practice, Macauley Jones of Brad Jones Racing triggered a red flag when he flew – literally – into the run-off area at high speed.

Formula 1 2021, news, Red Bull reveal new car, RB16B, Max Verstappen, F1,

Published

Formula 1 teams are no strangers to intrigue and secrecy. But Red Bull have just taken things to the next level on the first day of promotional filming ahead of the 2021 season.

Drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez took part in a day of filming on Wednesday at the famous Silverstone track in Britain, with Red Bull releasing 76 photos of the day’s running.

However, NONE of those photos showed the new RB16B car the team will use in competition this season – despite the team stating both drivers spent time on track in the new model.

Photos were released of both drivers, and reserve driver Alex Albon, driving the 2019 RB15 car. A bunch of photos of front views, full garage shots, and whole-team shots were released – but all appear to deliberately hide the new car.

Young gun Will Brown earned the unwelcome honour of having the first Supercars crash of 2021, just half an hour into his first practice session as a full-time driver.

Taking on the famous Mount Panorama track at Bathurst, 22-year-old Brown clipped the inside wall at the Dipper before slamming into the outside wall.

The Erebus Motorsport driver was in third place on the timesheets at the time in his WD-40 Commodore, but the heavy shunt saw his car towed back to the pits in need of significant repairs.
