F1 news: Russell vs Bottas and two more 2021 rivalries to watch | F1 | Sport


The Schumacher name is inextricably linked with Ferrari, such was the inexorable success his father enjoyed with the team.

Schumacher junior, of course, may not pan out in F1 as his father did, but if he can show glimpses of his quality with Haas in 2021, there will be little stopping the inevitable links to Ferrari. After all, he has already tested the car ahead of the 2021 season!

Then there is Carlos Sainz, who signed with Ferrari after two solid and consistent years with McLaren.

McLaren finished third in the Constructors’ Championship last year because of Sainz’s reliability and he more than deserves his chance to prove himself at a resurgent Ferrari.

For now, Leclerc is the unquestioned leader of the team, but Sainz will look to challenge that authority, all with the knowledge that Schumacher will be breathing down his neck, even from the back of the grid.
