Charles Leclerc missed out on laurels in F1 Portugal GP


The Portuguese Grand Prix turned out to be another screamer for Hamilton who was outstanding. He needed to be at his awesome best as Max Verstappen is challenging hard for the title and would now be leading if Hamilton had not had one of his best days on the track. 

As for Charles Leclerc, there were opportunities, but in his own words he pushed too much in qualifying ending up in eighth place on the grid with medium tyres. He was still a threat for laurels but Ferrari became puzzled that they couldn’t optimize their result on mediums. Leclerc pointed out that Ferrari had been struggling a lot on the medium with both cars and that put Ferrari on the back foot in this particular race in Portugal. In fact when they changed to a hard tyre in the race Charles found the going easier and ended up in 6th place scoring important points.

It is still a little too early to get a firm grasp on the Principality’s famous summer entertainment for this still unique period in 2021 following the Covid 2020 nightmare. Normally by this time as we approach May 15th fans are abuzz and making plans for all the concerts in July and August. 

We are still on tenterhooks awaiting the Principality’s announcement of how they see the emergence from the health crisis accelerating – and critically what venues can launch concerts and with what size audiences. And what health safety restrictions will be obligatory. It’s an incomplete jig-saw puzzle at the moment. But the rumour mills are working; and possibly more than rumours though promoters are reluctant to publicize too much in case of disappointment if regulations tighten and any advertised shows have to be cancelled.
