Italian Grand Prix 2021 results

After the uninteresting sprint race the Italian Grand Prix was a dramatic affair. Ricciardo jumped Verstappen on the first lap and with both Hamilton and Verstappen stuck behind a McLaren the race seemed relatively settled. However, during the pitstops a slow stop for Verstappen meant that Hamilton exited the pits just ahead and Verstappen then tried to pass Hamilton into the second corner. The cars touched and Verstappen's car bounced across the top of Hamilton's and both of them had to retire. The stewards later judged the accident to be Versrappen's fault and he has a three place grid penalty at the next Grand Prix. This left the two McLarens to finish a fabulous one-two with Ricciardo taking the top step and Norris in second, Bottas finished third.

Dutch Grand Prix 2021 results

The Dutch Grand Prix promised much but ended up being fairly dull. Verstappen was kept honest by Hamilton for much of the race but really didn't seem troubled. The circuit and banking looked good but provided very little in terms of overtaking opportunities and the most exciting part of the afternoon seemed to be the Mercedes drivers squabbling over the fastest lap.

Belgian Grand Prix 2021 results

What felt like the possibly the longest Grand Prix in history turned out to be the shortest. The weather at Spa prompted a red flag after a formation lap behind the safety car and it was more than three hours before the F1 cars took to the track again. In the end they completed two laps behind the safety car before the race was red flagged again. Two laps is the minimum number of laps that must be completed for a result to be declared. The race was won by Verstappen but, after a phenomenal qualifying, it was George Russell in second who took the limelight with his first F1 podium, Hamilton finished third. As the race did not reach 75% distance the points were halved (and in RealityF1).

Hungarian Grand Prix 2021 results

The Hungarian Grand Prix started wet with Bottas out braking himself and collecting Norris and both Red Bulls. Stroll then crashed into Leclerc and both retired. The race was red flagged and, at the restart, all of the field entered the pits to switch to dry tyres with the exception of Hamilton who took the start on his own. He then pitted and rejoined at the back of the field. He then worked his way through the field to finished behind Ocon and Vettel. In late drama, Vettel was then disqualified as not enough fuel could be extracted from his car to be analysed. This meant the final result was Ocon, Hamilton, Sainz. With Verstappen only in ninth this was strong weekend for Hamilton and he took the lead in the championship again. However, it was Ocon that stood out by taking his maiden F1 win.
