Formula One 2021 opening weekend

Marty and McGee.

Los Angeles.

Driving around Hollywood in an Aston Martin Vantage.

Yeah, we think they’re insured. And no, we can’t imagine a better start to the 2021 Formula One season: Racing gurus Marty Smith and Ryan McGee help organize #F1DriveInLA with a few close friends and a whole bunch of souped-up cars….. some without windshields.

Here’s a look back at the west coast boys’ weekend that led to the first Bahrain Grand Prix for Lewis Hamilton, the 96th of his career.

Saturday: Did we not rent Malibu?


Marty & McGee bought new motorcycles and rode all the hot spots in Los Angeles. Because… California is the place to be.

Our Speed Racers race the streets of Los Angeles, which means the Walk of Fame and hamburgers aren’t far away.

So they loaded up the Aston Martin and drove to Beverly… Hill, that’s right. Pools, movie stars.

Meanwhile, someone who knows something about driving had no choice but to intervene:

I would love to hear you say Rodeo Drive right now.

frequently asked questions

Will F1 still have an audience in 2021?

Formula One still hopes spectators will be able to attend most races in 2021 – but each event will be judged by the specific local conditions that will prevail at the time.

What are the changes for F1 in 2021?

The minimum weight for Formula 1 cars in 2021 has been increased by 3kg to 749kg. The main reason for this is the higher weight of the tires (see below). At the same time, the minimum weight of the unit has been increased to 150 kg.
