Qatar Grand Prix 2021: Grand Prix Weekend Thread - Round 20 of 22

From watching the cars out on track, the first half of the lap is fairly conventional, but from the kink at Turn 9 and quickly shifting the line and braking, the lap picks up - the last sector looks more challenging with the faster cars.

There will, of course, be a lot of interest this weekend in the Mercedes protest and aftermath.



Circuit length: 5.38km
Number of laps: 57
Race distance: 306.66km
Dry weather tyre compounds: C1, C2 & C3
Race lap record: n/a

First Grand Prix at this circuit: 2021
First Qatar Grand Prix: 2021

Love the new Helmet from Lewis. Lots of people said he wouldn’t have the balls to take a stand in the Middle East….and here we are.

Is overtaking going to be easy / possible at this track? I am asking as someone who has not yet watched any practice footage, and although I have seen MotoGP around here, cant for the life of me remember anything about it.

We’ve seen a lot of slipstreaming on the straight in MotoGP. We’ll see if F1 can do the same

Have to say that running races at night here doesn’t look great. It works fine if you have a nice backdrop like Singapore, but here it just looks so dull at night. You see nothing other than the track, like it’s in the middle of nowhere

I think that's because it is in the middle of nowhere...

There's nothing much else to see in daylight:

The consensus seems to be that overtakes will be minimal:

Pérez - 'It looks fun. I think it’s going to be not much overtaking, so qualifying I think will be very important.'
Williams’ head of vehicle performance, Dave Robson - '[passing] could be tough [but] on their own the drivers will love it.'

And I think off-line, sand will be a bigger problem than marbles.

I really like the design of this helmet. IMO the colors stand out much better on a dark background than on a white one (see Vettel's t-shirt)

Ship it to Le Mans or a WEC race that prepares for Le Mans.
Or to any team that wants a re-adjustment of their BoP

The onboards look like theyve been sped up. Track is really fast, not hopeful of anything happening on Sunday though.

Yes, but the track looks more ‘alive’ in the daytime. A floodlight circuit in the middle of a nowhere does not
