Now that F1 2020 is officially over, why not have a new 2021 thread?

Yuki Tsunoda has been confirmed at Alpha Tauri for the new season, replacing Danii Kyvat

So the only seat we are now waiting on confirmation for is Red Bull. Will Albon keep his seat or will Perez get it?

Mercedes - Hamilton and Bottas
Red Bull - Verstappen and Albon/Perez
McLaren - Norris and Ricciardo
Aston Martin - Stroll and Vettel
Renault - Alonso and Ocon
Ferrari - Leclerc and Sainz
Alpha Tauri - Gasly and Tsunoda
Haas - Schumacher and Mazepin
Alfa Romeo - Raikkonen and Giovinazzi
Williams - Russel and Latifi

Will Valtteri Bottas be able to have a higher consistency this season? It seems like every year he starts strong and later on, fades away from Lewis.

In part that is due to Lewis's ability to push an insane pace, but Rosberg managed to alternate wins with him over the 2016 season till the end.

This will be Bottas fifth Mercedes season, so I feel like it's now or never for him.

Bottas is usually strong early doors, dips in the middle and then performs again when the pressure is off.

He will probably take a win or two early and Bottas 5.0 shite will be mentioned, when the chips are down he won't last. It's Verstappen vs Hamilton this year if Red Bull can get closer in qualifying, Max can carry them in the races.

Car launches this week:

March 2: Alpine and Mercedes.

March 3: Aston Martin and Haas.

March 5: Williams.
Tom commented
I have to say of them the ones I am most looking forward to seeing are the Alpine and the Aston Martin.
Best commented
Haas have will not develop their 2021 car after the Bahrain test, instead focusing solely on 2022.

Whilst I'm sure most teams will have this approach, its even riskier for Haas given the tight margins between them and Williams. Haas has two rookies, versus Williams with a driver in his third F1 season and a driver in his second season. Experience counts.
