From Russia with Love: Predictions for the Russian Grand Prix
What do you think will happen this weekend?
Formula 1 is back this weekend - as is Formula 2 and Formula 3 will also have its final round of the 2021 season. With all that in mind and a brand new 2021 F1 race winner last time out, let's see what Kiran and I could come up with this time around to try and predict the unpredictable.
This one could be properly mental.
Who Gets Pole Position?
Kiran Ganesh: Verstappen will get pole on a damp track from Hamilton and Bottas.
Thiemo Albers-Daly: Bottas will continue on his bounce back and claim pole position by a tight margin.
Who will be on the Podium?
Thiemo Albers-Daly: Aston Martin will have a surprisingly strong weekend with Sebastian Vettel claiming the win, with Alonso in second and a rejuvenated Kimi in third place.
Kiran Ganesh: Sochi-meister Bottas will fly into P1 on the first lap and then dominate. Verstappen and Hamilton will duel and finish 2 and 3.
We caught up to chat about this and a whole lot more!
Kiran Ganesh: Mick Schumacher will finish P10!
Thiemo Albers-Daly: Ferrari will score more points this weekend than McLaren.
What about Formula 2?
Thiemo Albers-Daly: The fight for the championship will get even closer with both Piastri and Zhou barely scoring any points and allowing others to catch up.
Kiran Ganesh: Zhou and Piastri will have contact and Shwartzman will take the feature race win at home.
Finally, what about Formula 3?
Kiran Ganesh: Hauger will have a disastrous Saturday and the title will be decided in the last race! He will still be champion though.
Thiemo Albers-Daly: Jack Doohan will pull off a masterclass and deny Hauger the title by claiming it for himself.
American Flat Track CEO Michael Lock and I discussed this, F1's U.S Challenges and much more.
