On which channel is Formula 1 running today? TV program, start time for 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix
After a three-week hiatus in the preseason, Formula 1 returns this weekend with the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix 2021, the second round of the race after the reintroduction of the track in the 2020 season shortened by the pandemic. And we should put on some fireworks.
In a very entertaining debut in Bahrain, there was a duel between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen in the final round. Hamilton only held Verstappen back to take the checkered flag on the season’s debut.
However, Hamilton’s victory was not without controversy: Verstappen overtook Hamilton by crossing the track limits in the final laps, and the Red Bull driver had to give the place to Hamilton through race control. Verstappen wasn’t pleased, but an advantage was gained. Rules are rules.
F1 drivers hit gear this weekend in Italy as Hamilton tries to start the season – on the track.
Here’s what you need to know about the second race of the 2021 F1 season:
