There were many crashes and red flags, Max Verstappen won the Emilia Romagna 2021 F1 race at the Imola circuit, Sunday (18/4).
The drama of the F1 Emilia Romagna 2021 has been seen since the race has not started.
The weather was not supportive with wet tracks but the rain seemed to have subsided, making each team confused.
Especially if it’s not a matter of choosing tires at the start of this race.
Most riders decide to use intermediate tires, except for Pierre Gasly, Esteban Ocon, Mick Schumacher, and Nikita Mazepin who wear wet tires.
There was a small incident during the formation lap where Charles Leclerc twisted because of the slippery track.
At the start, there was a tight fight on the front row because Max Verstappen who started the third suddenly sped up quickly and took the lead from Lewis Hamilton.
There was a slight bump when Hamilton was pushed out at the first corner and there was a broken part of Hamilton’s front spoiler.
A few moments after that, several racers made a twist and then closed with a crash by Nicholas Latifi which caused the Safety Car to come out.
There was a rubbing against Latifi’s car with Nikita Mazepin, who made him have to leave the race.
A few laps later when the Safety Car was not over, Mick Schumacher had a chance to twist and hit the parapet.
The front of Schumacher’s car was damaged but was still able to try to return to the pits for a replacement of parts.
But it is unique because Schumacher was unable to enter the pits. After all, the pit lane had been closed, and had to postpone repairs to his car.
After the track conditions were safe, the race was resumed at the beginning of lap 7.
Sergio Perez received a 10 second stop and go penalty for overtaking during the Safety Car period.
The incident began when Perez went wide off the track and made 2 riders take his position.
Then Perez got past the two of them to return to their original position, but it turned out to be considered against the rules.
On lap 22, Sebastian Vettel made a pit stop and became the first racer to switch to dry tires.
However, Sebastian Vettel also received a 10 second stop and go penalty for breaking the rules before the race, Vettel’s car tires have not installed a maximum of 5 minutes before the start started.
The change to slick tires did not look very successful in the early laps the tire was used for.
But the predictions will be effective in the next few laps as the track dries up and other riders make a pit stop to the slick tires.
On lap 29 several racers started changing to slick tires, including Lewis Hamilton.
Disastrous for Hamilton on lap 31 when he lost control of the car and drove wide off the track.
Hamilton had made a mistake by moving forward when it should have been going backward.
It caused minor damage to the front spoiler.
The yellow flag was flying because of the Lewis Hamilton incident.
But who would have thought, Valtteri Bottas and George Russell crashed not long after?
The crash of Bottas and Russell was quite severe because the car was badly damaged and there were also lots of car debris scattered on the track.
The red flag had to be raised until the track condition was restored.
This gives an advantage for Lewis Hamilton who can continue the race even though he is in ninth place
The race started again on lap 35 but Yuki Tsunoda twisted and left the track even though he didn’t make the yellow flag fly.
Max Verstappen still led the race followed by Lando Norris who made it past Charles Leclerc after a restart with a rolling start.
In the end, the race was won by Max Verstappen with a far enough advantage, 22 seconds from Lewis Hamilton.
Lewis Hamilton, who was scattered, was able to catch up and finish second, the 3rd podium was secured by Lando Norris, followed by the Ferrari duo completing the top 5.
