It's finally time to go racing again this weekend as Formula 1 arrives at Imola for the second round of the 2021 season. So in our typical fashion, Kiran and I are back to accurately predict every key aspect of the race weekend. Let's see how far fetched our predictions are this time around and how much we can disagree with each other...

Who's going to be on Pole Position?

Kiran Ganesh:

It's going to be Max again. I trust the Red Bulls to dominate here as well and Max will be on it.

Thiemo Albers-Daly:

Max will be strong this time around again but let's face it, Lewis is gonna pip him to pole position come Saturday afternoon.

What will the podium look like on Sunday?

Thiemo Albers-Daly:

Hamilton, Ricciardo, Leclerc. There will be a big tussle between the top two for the win after some bad luck for Bottas and Max early on in the race. Ricciardo will capitalize at Imola once again and Leclerc will claim the final spot to tease Ferrari's improvement in 2021.

Kiran Ganesh:

Bottas, Ricciardo, Norris. Yeess bold one here. After Hamilton and Verstappen crash in the rain. McLaren is going to get their first double podium in centuries.

Bold Prediction for the weekend:

Kiran Ganesh:

Apart from the above, I'll say that Kimi gets into Q3.

Thiemo Albers-Daly:

George Russell will get his first points with Williams and redeem himself after his unfortunate crash at Imola last season.

So there you have it, Kiran and I's definitely super accurate predictions for the Formula 1 action this weekend. Which one of us do you think will get the most predictions right? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Car number 9 will complete a lap - but not the race, Vettel will hit someone else and blame them until at least sometime after the race when he will quietly apologise and may even admit to being at fault (this is part of his plan to get a race ban and so not have to go to Saudi Arabia). George Russell and Kimi will both be in the points (but I'm not going to say in which positions) and, although Max will get pole, along with the usual suspects, he won't win the race and may even be told to let his team mate (and eventual race winner) passed. Fastest lap will go to Yuki (I know no fear) Tsunoda who will not only pass Alonso but will lap him - Alonso will retire again, this time due to a crisp packet... Bottas may be in the points but probably not on the podium (he won't be on the top step of the podium all season, unless another driver invites him there as part of their celebrations). Lance Stroll might get 10th (again) - just...
