Are we at peak F1 right now?

For many, many years Formula 1 has strived to do and to be better on all fronts. With close competition, a growing fanbase, a stable political landscape and rules in place to encourage sustainability, 2021 is on course to provide an unexpected peak

Formula 1 cannot escape the truth that the present day often struggles to match the glories of the past; nor is capable of living up to the levels of hype that surround future events.

All too often, past F1 memories get sugar coated to promote a ‘better back then’ feeling, while the imagination can run out of control when it comes to thinking up the possibilities of good things that are yet to happen.
