Formula 1 in France is boring! DRS trains and no overtakes! Isn’t that the story we’ve been led to believe since Paul Ricard’s return to the F1 calendar in 2018? 2021 sure bucked that trend with 90-minutes of racing that ultimately saw Max Verstappen notch up another win.

Reflecting on the 2021 Portuguese GP
