Fans waiting for the return of F1 speed will be a bit disappointed this weekend.
The first two rounds of the 2021 Formula 1 season have been memorable: In Bahrain, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen used the last few rounds of the race as their own personal playground, with Hamilton emerging on top. In Imola, Max Verstappen’s incredible start kept him in the lead for most of the race, with a late charge netting him his second podium of the year.
Now, F1 drivers head west to Portugal for the first time in over two decades — after a week layoff. Here’s what you need to know about the next F1 round.
Is there a Formula 1 race today?
The early season duel between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton has resulted in the pair trading wins in Bahrain and Italy through the first two rounds of the 2021 season.
The next time the Mercedes and Red Bull drivers take the grid will be on April 30 for the Portuguese Grand Prix’s first practice. The race follows a few days later on May 2.
It’s the first race in an early season doubleheader in Europe, but it’s still a week away.
