Formula 1's next 100 races are much more important than its 1000th world championship event this weekend. By the 1,100th race, which based on the current calendar will be coming towards the end of the 2023 season, F1 will be immersed in its next generation: either into the swing of executing its massive rules overhaul, fumbling with the fallout of panicked backtracking, or plotting further reformation still.
If F1 executes its 2021 revolution right, the prospects are mouthwatering. Especially as the pool of driving talent is in rude health and is arguably its strongest asset.
That puts it in a strong position to handle one of the toughest transitions in sports: waving goodbye to your established stars and ushering in a new generation without losing momentum in between.
