Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2021 results

The first Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was very much a stop/start affair. There were multiple safety car and virtual safety car periods, the race was red flagged twice and there were three standing starts. Hamilton and Verstappen fought over the lead and the result was a shambolic affair as Verstappen left the track at one point and was deemed to get an advantage. The race director told Red Bull to give the place back and Verstappen slowed. It seems Hamilton had not had the message and collided with the back of the Red Bull. Verstappen was then given a 5 second penalty for the original incident. Hamilton then passed Verstappen and, with the penalty and his tyres fading, Verstappen settled into second place. Hamilton went on to win the race with Bottas clinching third from Ocon as he crossed the finish line. Verstappen was later given a time penalty for causing the collision but this does not affect the result.

In RealityF1 it was four way tie between Jess, Josur, Matt W and nrparmar for the win in the Reality F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. The team to have was Hamilton, Ricciardo, Williams and Alpine.

In the 2021 RealityF1 Championship, Tom Sykes moves into the lead ahead of SmithyB_03 with just one race to go.

Qatar Grand Prix 2021 results

The Qatar Grand Prix was another dominant performance from Lewis Hamilton as he led from lights to flag. Verstappen, recovering from a five place grid penalty for ignoring double waved yellow flags, quickly reached second place but was unable to do anything about Hamilton. Alonso finished a very impressive third. Behind them there was drama as several cars suffered punctures. Bottas was one of the drivers to suffer a puncture and ultimately he had to retire the car. Perez fought his way up from eleventh to fourth and the result means Red Bull close in on Mercedes in the constructors' championship and Hamilton closes on Verstappen in the drivers' championship with just two races to go.

Brazilian Grand Prix 2021 results

The Brazilian Grand Prix was a phenomenal race as Lewis Hamilton fought his way up from tenth on the grid. He had set pole on Friday, was disqualified for a rear wing infringement and started the sprint last. He finished fifth and then took a five place grid drop for a new engine. He started tenth for the Grand Prix and fought his way quickly up into second behind Verstappen. He closed during the first pit stop but then Red Bull pitted first at the second pit stop. Hamilton stayed out for three laps and then pitted. He then closed in on Verstappen and made a move going into turn four. Verstappen ran wide and both cars left the circuit. A few laps later and Hamilton made the move stick and then disappeared into the distance. This weekend was one of Hamilton's most difficult but it led to arguably one of his greatest drives. There are now only three races left and the gap at the top is just 14 points.

In RealityF1 it was a three way tie between KevinL, SubmarinerF1 and Sudeep iPatch Pednekar for the Reality F1 Brazilian Grand Prix. The team to have was Hamilton, Gasly, Alpine and AlphaTauri.

Please note: due to debris on the track all cars followed the safety car through the pit lane for two laps. These count as pit stops in the official results for the race and so the number of pit stops used in RealityF1 was four and not two. See: RealityF1 Rule 6.6
