Sixth. That's Shane van Gisbergen's worst finishing position in a circuit race since September last year. The Kiwi has been in the form of his life for the past seven months. It started by winning his first Bathurst 1000 in October last year. He then flew straight home to New Zealand, jumped in an AP4-spec Mitsubishi Mirage and won the Battle of Jacks Ridge rally. If gravel rallying wasn't diverse enough, van Gisbergen hung around for the New Zealand Grand Prix at Hampton Downs in January. He hadn't raced a Toyota Racing Series car in well over a decade and is several feet taller than most single-seater jockeys. His fire extinguisher went off right before the race and he had to start from pitlane, but he won the race. In February he went back to Bathurst and won both heats of the Supercars season-opening Mount Panorama 500. Exactly a fortnight before the next round at Sandown, he took a tumble off his mountain bike and broke his collarbone and three ribs.

Yamaha has been the standout manufacturer of 2021 so far, with factory team riders Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Vinales winning the first three races of the season between them. By contrast, Ducati's start to the campaign has been rather underwhelming, although Franceso Bagnaia does hold second position in the riders' standings ahead of Vinales and Pramac rider Johann Zarco. Suzuki's top speed pace deficit was evident in Qatar but the Japanese marque appeared much stronger in Portugal next time out, with Alex Rins running second before his crash and teammate Joan Mir finishing third. Honda's prospects have been boosted by the return of Marc Marquez following a lengthy injury-induced break, with the Spaniard leading the RC213V contingent at Portimao. How Marquez performs at Jerez, the scene of the crash that ruled him out of the entire 2020 season, will be one of the biggest talking points of this weekend. 2021 MotoGP Spanish Grand Prix session timings … [Read more...] about 2021 MotoGP Spanish GP – How to watch, session times & more
The 2021 F1 season promises the most exciting title fight in years, as Max Verstappen takes on seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton during the last year of the current rules cycle. Some smart strategic decisions and equally brilliant driving saw Hamilton draw first blood in Bahrain last month, but Verstappen drew even at Imola just weeks later with a faultless drive in tricky wet conditions. Mercedes has repeatedly stated that it faces a performance deficit to Red Bull's high-rake RB16B in 2021, something the Austrian brand insists is a clever tactic to put it under pressure. The two F1 teams are again expected to be in a class of their own at the Algarve circuit, and how their battle pans out will provide a better indication of the pecking order at the front of the field. Meanwhile, McLaren could once again threaten the top guns for a podium finish, judging by the pace Lando Norris showed at Imola in the Mercedes-powered MCL35M. Red Bull's sister team AlphaTauri and … [Read more...] about 2021 Formula 1 Portuguese Grand Prix session timings and preview
