Verstappen fights Leclerc for F1's records – F1's 1100th race

Formula 1 is celebrating what it considers to be it 1000th race this weekend, but it is taking place against the backdrop of fierce talks about its future. So, let's imagine how those talks may end up establishing F1's future and its next milestone event

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.
