    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Animo Mch, ¡¡el namber guan!!.

    PD: Yo desde hoy en casa por positivo en antigenos pero sin fiebre y con sintomas llevaderos, llamé por que se me juntaron varias cosas que era raro "to a la vez" y pum, acerté. A poco estuve de ir una comida con amigos pensando que no era "pa tanto" menos mal que tuve algo de sentido común (para variar)

    ¡Muchas gracias por este fantástico hilo, llumia!


    Ahora McH ya puede estar más tranquilín para centrarse en ponerse güeno, que este hombre se preocupa demasiado por tener el foro al día. Me apunto a enviarle ánimo , aunque también le mando a esta para que ponga firme al bichejo disidente ese que tiene dentro.


    Y mucho ánimo y paciencia para tí también, yorch , espero que la cosa no vaya a más. Menos mal que tu sentido común apareció en el momento preciso. Y tú pensando que ya te había abandonado .


    A ver si podemos disfrutar todos de un buen GP de Portugal, y si es desde casa, mucho mejor.

    Ya nos metemos en harina con algunas Previas de los equipos que nos van llegando:

    Portugal GP: Preview - Red Bull

    Max is just one point off the lead in the Drivers' Championship entering this race, but he has led the most laps this season. Max has led 90 laps in 2021 compared to Lewis Hamilton's 29 so far.

    Despite only being 23 years old, Max's 44th career podium in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix moved him ahead of Sir Jackie Stewart on the all-time table. Having now won 11 career races, he is still one month younger than Michael Schumacher when he won his first F1 race at the 1992 Belgian GP.


    Sergio Perez started a Grand Prix from the front row for the first time in his career at Imola, setting a new Formula One record for longest career before doing so, it was his 193rd start.


    Sergio and Max put two Honda-powered Red Bulls in the top three on the grid at Imola. This weekend they are seeking to give Honda their first front row lockout as a power unit supplier since Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger at the 1991 Australian Grand Prix.


    Max's win in Italy was the first Honda powered win in Imola since Ayrton Senna 30 years ago.


    You said a small mistake cost you pole position in Imola. How did it feel to qualify on the front row?

    Sergio Perez: I was very pleased with my progression after qualifying on the front row at Imola. I think I even surprised myself to be that quick in only my second race weekend at Red Bull, and to be able to extract the maximum from the car in such a short amount of time. Looking back at it, I think being able to adapt to such a different car and driving style definitely gives me a big confidence boost and it showed me I can adapt well. I am starting to understand the car and that was the main positive.


    How motivated is everyone in the Team knowing how competitive the RB16B is?

    SP: The motivation is sky high. The way we work at Red Bull, we prepare our race weekend to take the maximum from it because we know if we do everything right we have a realistic chance of winning the race. Everyone in the Team is also pushing really hard to try to improve the RB16B so we can maximise every single weekend with both cars - that's the target. Imola was a missed opportunity as I think we should have finished 1-2 but hopefully we can achieve that this weekend.


    What are the Team hoping for at the next round in Portugal?

    SP: Imola is a pretty tough track to get on top of and maximise, especially if you've recently swapped teams, but in Portugal I hope to be in the mix and get everything out of the car. We know what the car is capable of and the goal is to deliver on its potential. The positive is that the pace is there, we just need to continue building on our form and take another step forwards.


    It takes time getting to grips with a new car. What is the process behind it?

    SP: It's just time in the car. Obviously the more work you put in, the more you get out, so I analyse, I make notes, I speak to the engineers and I watch back footage. Everything you do just helps get you as ready as possible. You can see with everyone that has changed teams this year, it takes time to get up to speed. Everyone is good, everyone is exceptionally fast, it's just a process you need to go through before everything comes to you naturally and hopefully we can achieve that in the opening races of the season.


    The next races in Portugal and Spain are the first back to back weekends of the season. What are your thoughts heading to the Algarve?

    SP: Portugal is a great place to go racing. It's fairly new to the calendar and last year was tricky with the new asphalt so it will be interesting to see how it is this year in terms of grip but certainly I think it's a good track. It's the first back to back of the season and races are coming thick and fast now so it will be important to be on it!


    Max, you had a brilliant win in Imola, how did it feel to get that victory?

    Max Verstappen: It was of course great to win, after missing out in Bahrain it felt very satisfying to win the race in Imola. There were definitely a few things that we wanted to learn from the Bahrain race, which we did, and we could bring home the win. We also know that it's a very long season, so we just have to stay very focussed and I am always looking ahead, Imola wasn't perfect so we have to keep pushing.


    Talk us through your race start and the run to Turn 1.

    MV: It's always tricky to know what's going to happen but it felt like I had a good launch, I didn't maximise performance on the Saturday so it definitely felt good to lead the race from Turn 1. I'm happy with what we have with the RB16B, it's faster, it has more grip and better balance. We lost downforce with the floor, but I think we lost a bit less than other teams and it shows that we made a good step forward. We're starting the season strong, the best we've had since I've been with the Team. It's a long season, and if we want to fight for the championship, we have to keep improving.


    Looking ahead to Portugal, are you excited to go back?


    MV:
    I am looking forward to going back to Portugal, we were on the podium there last year and I think we have a better car now so I'm looking forward to extracting everything we can from the car and have a bit of fun out there. Every race weekend so far, we've really felt that there is a chance to win, it feels like a different mindset now when you know you can fight for pole. We've definitely learnt a lot over the years, I'm very excited to see what is ahead of us. It won't be easy but we are going to do everything we can to stay in the fight this season.

    Portugal GP: Preview - McLaren

    Lando Norris: "Being on the podium for the second time in Formula 1 was an amazing feeling, but I couldn't have done it without every single person in the team. Everyone at track and the factory continues to go above and beyond to give us the best possible chance every weekend. The result shows the progress we're making to compete closer towards the front of the grid, but we know not every race will go in our favour. We just need to keep our head down and look to improve in all areas to find that extra tenth that can give us the edge against strong competition. I think Imola really showed us that we need to try and turn every opportunity into an advantage with the fight being so close.

    "I'm glad we get to return to Portugal this weekend as it was a circuit that added something different to last year's calendar. The elevation changes at this track make it a demanding drive with several blind corners. Everyone was struggling for grip there last year with the track being recently resurfaced, so it'll be interesting to see what it's like this weekend. Hopefully we'll be able to push the car a bit more this time around."


    Daniel Ricciardo: "Up next is Portimao and I'm eager to get back in the car. Racing there is a lot of fun with the track having some unique elements that you don't see at every race on the calendar. There's a good mixture of high and low-speed corners with various changes in elevation that make it an exciting challenge. Coming out of some of the turns, you can really feel your stomach drop with the steep changes in gradient.


    "This weekend, I want to keep building on the progress we've made in the first two races and put what we learned at Imola into practice. We've definitely started the season on the right foot by scoring good points for the Constructors' Championship, so I can't be too disappointed on that front. There are a few elements I'm still trying to get to grips with which is only going to get better with more time behind the wheel. Seeing Lando achieve a podium showed the potential of the car which is super motivating. We're only three races in and there's a lot more to come from me, so let's keep it going."


    Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "This weekend sees us start the first double-header of the season as we prepare to go racing in Portugal then Spain. Portimao was a welcome addition to the calendar last year and it's great to be returning to race there again. Back-to-back events provide a unique set of challenges for the team that we're well prepared for.

    Reliability, operational effectiveness and the management of spare parts are crucial to the success of these weekends.

    "Imola again provided confirmation of the step forward we've made as a team, which is encouraging to see. Both drivers are doing a good job on-track and have scored some important points for the Constructors' Championship over the first two races. It's important that we keep the positive momentum and energy up. There's still a lot of work to do as we look to keep pushing and deliver upgrades that are in the pipeline. We also need to continue to maximise any opportunities that present themselves and make the right decisions to stay in the mix. Every single member of the team is dedicated to giving our competition a hard time out on track. We remain focused and are ready to go again this weekend."

    Portugal GP: Preview - Haas

    Uralkali Haas F1 Team's 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship campaign will continue with back-to-back events in Portugal and Spain.

    Formula 1 returned to Portugal in 2020, ending a 24-year absence, as the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, more commonly known as Portimao, made its debut on the calendar. Portimao's inclusion received widespread approval from fans and competitors alike, with Formula 1 drivers comparing the circuit to a rollercoaster, on account of its flowing layout and series of undulating sections.


    When the provisional 2021 calendar was unveiled there was a blank space - and it was consequently filled by Portimao, which stays on for another season. But in a change from 2020 it moves from fall to spring as the third round of the campaign, with the event occurring on Portugal's Dia do Trabalhador - the Labor Day weekend.


    Reflecting on the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, the pre-race rain meant your rookie drivers would face a wet start to the race - in just their second ever Formula 1 start. Did the team change its objective based off the conditions and do you see it as a positive that both Nikita and Mick have now experienced wet race conditions?

    Guenther Steiner: "No, we didn't change the objectives. We just got the rain and had to deal with it and learn from it. The drivers are drinking from a water hose at the moment, every grand prix is bringing something new up. For learning it's ideal, just learning things like the processes and how to behave in these situations. Once you've done these things once, the second time - for sure, it brings a lot less stress I would say. Do you want it all at the beginning - maybe not, but if it comes, you take the experience. I think it's a good thing all these new experiences."


    The issue of track-limits was again present throughout much of the race weekend at Imola. How involved are you as a team principal with all the relevant parties on such matters?

    GS: "I'm not directly involved but obviously I've got my opinion about it. For me, with the track limits, if there's a safety issue - I'm for it, otherwise I wouldn't be too concerned about it. Then again, the race director needs to have control over it because with a driver, if you give them a millimeter, they'll take a centimeter. It's in the hands of the race director to make the rules. If the teams and the drivers think it's wrong, for sure we will let him know."


    Formula 1 announced that the Miami Grand Prix will be on the calendar from 2022. As an American-owned team, how welcome is the news that a second race will be on the schedule in the United States and in particular, what do you feel Miami lends to the calendar?

    GS: "I think to have a second race in the United States is fantastic for the sport in general. I know that the viewership in the States is increasing, which is good for Formula 1 and obviously for us too being the only American team as well. So, there is no negative to this. Miami is a great place to have a race - it's a great city. For me personally, its one race with no jet lag, so that helps as well as I live on the east coast. I'm really looking forward to Miami as it's always exciting there."


    Next up we have back-to-back race weekends in Portugal and Spain. In your opinion, what's a successful outcome from the two events for both the team and your drivers?

    GS: "Nothing different from the first two races - get as much experience as possible, get both drivers to the finish in both races, keep learning and increase their race knowledge in Formula 1. The target has not changed, we just keep our heads down and learn as much as possible."


    Looking back you had the chance to experience Pirelli's Cinturato Blue and Green extreme wet and intermediate tires in Italy - but without the luxury of it being in a test or practice session. As a rookie, how much of a challenge was it to experience a Formula 1 car in the wet immediately in race conditions?

    Nikita Mazepin: "It was a big challenge, because obviously in the race nobody is taking it step-by-step or taking it easy, everyone's pushing to the absolute maximum from the beginning. Therefore, without any practice, you can only guess the trajectory and the line. I'm just one of 20 drivers on the grid, and one of the three rookies, who had to deal with the same conditions - I think everyone was kind of equal there."


    Two races in, two very different circuits and conditions faced through Bahrain and Italy. Information comes thick and fast in Formula 1. How big is the jump coming from Formula 2 in terms of the data you have to analyze and the time you have to process it as a driver in Formula 1?

    NM: "It's very big. I would say the amount of data that you're able to collect in Formula 1, it's probably triple or quadruple that of what you can get in Formula 2. So, it's a part of your growth, in racing terms, to be able to understand this information and be in control of it."


    Back-to-back race weekends offer little opportunity for reflection with the demands involved of moving on to the next race. As a driver how do you prepare for the intensity of back-to-back races - is it simply a case of the more track time the better for you?

    NM: "I don't change my approach. I love racing, I love what I do, and I'm very fortunate to be doing this as my job. Back-to-back weekends and the season getting intense is something that I'm massively looking forward to this year. I can't say I've had this in the past, but I just have a good feeling about constantly driving and driving to get better at what I do."


    What experiences do you have of testing or racing at Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal and what are the specific characteristics of the circuit you need to be aware of in a Formula 1 car there?
    NM: "One of my first tests in a formula car was in Portugal at this track. I haven't been there in over seven years, maybe eight if I'm a little mistaken, but this track is a special one. It's a spectacular one to watch on television, and when you're in the car you're constantly going up and down - it's like a rollercoaster. I'm looking forward to getting out there."

As a rookie, how much of a challenge was it to experience a Formula 1 car in the wet immediately in race conditions?

    Mick Schumacher: "It definitely wasn't easy to hop in directly to a full wet race. Obviously, most of the guys started on inters, and partially because we were a bit inexperienced, that's why we chose to start on the full wets. It was definitely the easier and safer way but looking at it now with the experience that I have, I probably would have started on the inters. If we have a wet race again, and if it's not 100 percent sure if it's wet or inters, or if it looks like it's going to dry up, then I'd definitely start on the inters. No situation is identical though, there's always something new and something else happening. You have to assess it in the moment. There was definitely lots learned, it was great fun and a great experience. I liked the mixed conditions."


    Two races in and you have encountered two very different circuits and conditions through Bahrain and Italy. How did you find the switch between the two tracks?

    MS: "It was quite difficult jumping from a track where we had quite a bit of testing and then the race, to then move to a track where we barely had any free practice time and you have to straight away perform at your best level. It's definitely not easy but it's a nice challenge. I enjoy that challenge and I enjoyed Imola. I find that as a team we made a good step forward. We learned lots with lots to take into the next race weekend in Portimao."


    Back-to-back race weekends offer little opportunity for reflection with the demands involved of moving on to the next race. As a driver how do you prepare for the intensity of back-to-back races - is it simply a case of the more track time the better for you?

    MS: "I think that the back-to-back races are definitely interesting, there were loads of them last year obviously due to the difficult year everybody had. We too had to have a few back-to-backs in Formula 2 as we had to get a certain amount of races in. I think it's important we asses everything that happens in the race week, take the positives and learn from the negatives, and then you bring those things straight into the next week. Obviously, there's not a lot of time in-between, but I enjoy having back-to-back races as its just loads of mileage, lots of time in the car and time spent with the team. You spend a lot of time with your team anyway and now we get to do it consecutively and work together really closely throughout this time period."


    What experiences do you have of testing or racing at Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal?

    MS: "I tested there in 2018 in a GP2 car. It's a great track, I really love driving on it. I think it's like an old-school track, similar to Imola. It's good for us too as teams don't have a lot of experience there - just the experience from last year. I think that will bring the competition closer which is really good."

    Portugal GP: Preview - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly: "Looking back at the last round in Imola, there are some positives to take away from what was a disappointing weekend in terms of the result. We were in the top ten for all free practice sessions and were again in the top five in Qualifying - three and a half tenths off the pole time - which must be one of the best Qualifying times for the team. Seventh in the race is still a good result, even if we know we should have done better. We'll discuss it as a team and see how we can make sure it doesn't happen again.

    Last year I had a good race in Portimao, finishing fifth. It's a really unique circuit with all the gradient changes, going up and down like a rollercoaster. It's fun driving there and very different to what we're used to - as a low grip track, the car slides a lot and it's not easy to get the tyres up to temperature. We will be running the C1 hard tyres and last year, especially in FP1 they were very hard to warm up, but this time we have a bit more knowledge and experience and the weather will certainly be warmer this year. So, we will face a different challenge to the ones from the first two races.
    After two races, we are now used to only having an hour for each free practice session. It hasn't changed our work programme, but it does mean the track is busier with more cars out at the same time, so there is a bit more action and you spend less time waiting in the garage. I quite like it, as the sessions are more intense."


    Yuki Tsunoda: "I learned a lot of lessons in Imola. It was quite the opposite to Bahrain which had gone well. I had very high expectations for Imola and so had the team. Everything had gone smoothly in free practice but then I made a huge mistake in Qualifying, which meant I had a very tough race. I had not had a bad crash for two years, so this was a lesson which I can learn from going into the next races. The race was also the first time I had driven a Formula 1 car in the wet and using the intermediate tyres was really tricky, so I had to build up my speed gradually. But we have a car that has been competitive at the first two tracks, capable of running in the top six.


    The track in Portugal is new to me. I don't know what to expect, although I have done a couple of sessions driving Portimao on the simulator and I've watched last year's Grand Prix. It is a beautiful circuit with interesting corners like Turn 1 and the off-camber Turn 13 which looks quite unique, as well as so many up and down sections and blind corners. I think it could be tricky for track limits, but I will build up my pace gradually. It will be a completely different situation to the previous two rounds, as I had already driven a lot in Bahrain and Imola before the race weekend. During free practice I hope to complete a significant number of laps to adapt to the track as soon as possible and hopefully be well prepared for Qualifying."

    Back-to-back races are a double-edged sword: on the one hand, they're a challenge for any team, which is tasked with managing the logistical, mental and physical burdens of two race events within two weeks; on the other, it's an exciting, adrenaline-filled time in which the focus on the job at hand is total and one is given two chances to get things right, an immediate opportunity to set things right.

    This is even more so when you're approaching a race with the burning desire to right some wrongs: after the first two races of the season, where we did not score the points our performances probably deserved, we head to Portugal first and then Spain determined to get our tally off the mark.


    Confidence is high within the team, which is unshaken by the bad luck of the opening races. The swings of fortune are bound to favour us soon, and with them should come the just rewards for our improved form. In the meantime, hard work and commitment remain unwavering. We head to Iberia with quiet confidence, ready to put up a fight to bring home the results we deserve.


    Frederic Vasseur: "We approach this back to back with the confidence of being able to have a good performance and the determination to make up for the circumstances that prevented us from scoring in the first two outings of the season. We know we could have, and should have, had two cars in the points on merit last time out, but that is no consolation as the final result is all that matters. It is now time to turn performance into points: we know we need a spotless weekend to edge out the other teams in the midfield and we are determined to do just that."



    Kimi Raikkonen: "Two more races mean two more chances to have a good result - something we went really close to in the opening events of the season. We are not miles off, we are right in the middle of this scrap and we can fight with anyone in the midfield if we do our job properly and we have a little luck, which we missed so far this season. Last year I had a fun first lap in Portugal, but it's not going to be on my mind: in the end, it doesn't really matter how you start a race, but where you finish it and we need to finish it in the top ten to achieve our objective."

    Antonio Giovinazzi
    :
    "I can't wait to be back in the car for the races in Portugal and Spain. I feel we definitely haven't reaped what we deserved in the first two rounds: we have been terribly unlucky, especially in Imola where we would have been on course for ninth or tenth if it hadn't been for a tear-off stuck in a brake. We need to take the positives of those performances and use them as a spur to go one better in the next races: we know we are in a very close fight and we know we can come home with some really good results if things go our way."

    Portugal GP: Preview - Aston Martin

    After a last-minute call up in 2020, Formula One returns to Portugal this weekend as it takes on the rollercoaster Algarve International Circuit. With high-speed corners taken blind, daunting crests and dips, and a challenging track surface, this is an all-out lap where the search for maximum grip on the limit can make or break a Grand Prix.

    Lance Stroll: "We head to Portugal feeling positive that we're making progress in unlocking the full potential of the AMR21. There's an exciting battle within the midfield pack, and our aim is to compete at the front of it - another clean weekend, and the prospect of more points, will ensure we maintain our momentum."


    Sebastian Vettel: "I think Portimao is a good place to aim for a clean weekend - the circuit is a high-speed autodrome; very smooth, and with plenty of gradient. It's fun to drive, and I think it'll be a good place to get a better handle on the limits of the AMR21. I know I'm yet to get the maximum from the car - but the fact that we understand that is another good reason to keep pushing."


    With a rollercoaster layout and limited data to pull upon, the Portuguese Grand Prix promises to be both eventful and unpredictable. Our strategy engineers have analysed historic data and more recent car performance to predict the key factors that could determine the result on Sunday - presented here in partnership with our Title Partner Cognizant.


    Overtaking: Usually one of the easiest circuits on the calendar for overtaking, particularly on the long run down to Turn One. In fact, 49 of the 55 overtakes (89%) made in last year's Grand Prix came at the opening corner.


    DRS: It plays a vital role here, but changes have been made for this year's race. The start/finish line's DRS zone is reduced by 165m, which could impact passing into Turn One. But a secondary zone has been added on the straight between Turns Four and Turn Five, with the latter corner already a hotspot for overtaking.


    Run-off: Portimao is the opposite of Imola when it comes to track limits - it has sweeping expanses of smooth run-off. While Imola is particularly punishing, so is Portimao - except it's the stewards who tend to be kept busy. In 2020, 194 laps were deleted for infringements - that compares to 63 in Imola last time out.


    While there were no Safety Cars in last year's race, there were three red flags in practice and the low-grip surface created a surprising start to the Grand Prix as drivers struggled for traction away from the line. Expect incidents!
    Strategy: It's likely to be a uniform one-stopper due to low tyre degradation. Last year, most drivers chose to pit just once - the only exceptions being those affected by an issue or hit with a penalty. Pirelli is bringing its C1, C2 and C3 tyres this weekend, the hardest range available.


    Unlocking the Lap - with SentinelOne



    A lap of Portimao requires commitment, whether it's approaching high-speed blind crests, finding the limits in long-sweeping corners, or carrying maximum speeds into the long straights.


    The majority of the 969m start/finish line opens the lap at Portimao, with drivers carrying significant speed into a tricky, bowl-shaped right-hander at Turn One. With plenty of opportunity for slipstreaming, it's the key place to overtake - but also very easy to run wide and pick up a stewards' warning.


    It's simple to follow Turn Two's flat-out kink by going wide into Turn Three, Lagos. It's the slowest corner on the track - and is unusually wide for such a big stop. The tight and technical second and third sectors mean most battles are usually resolved by Turn Five.


    Portimao is notable for its swoops and dives. On average, tracks feature gradient changes of around 8 per cent - the steepest gradient at Portimao is a 16 per cent downhill slope, with the track sweeping steeply downhill between Turns Eight and Nine and 11 and 12.


    Sagres corner (Turn 14) requires a late turn-in followed by a wide exit is key as drivers sweep into the final corner, Galp. This turn starts off blind, but drivers can gather speed through the apex all the way through to the finish line. It also takes precision to excel here on an in-lap - with the pit entry placed at a tricky angle.


    Expect top speeds of over 352km/h (219mph) on the main straight.

    Impacto de los fuertes desniveles de la pista:

    The impact of track elevation in F1

    One of Portimao's most distinctive characteristics is the frequent elevation change, with the circuit rising and falling dramatically throughout the course of the lap like a rollercoaster.

    These gradient changes are far steeper than they appear on TV, but although they don't pose a technical challenge to the cars themselves, they have a much bigger impact for the drivers.


    Elevation change does not impact the performance of the car as much as you might expect. It does put a little more strain through the cars, but they are built to handle heavy kerb strikes and large forces anyway, so a bit of extra compression in the suspension is no bother for modern-day F1 machines.


    But different types of elevation change impact the cars in different ways, depending on the circuit and the topography.
    Some will require tweaks to be made to the car set-up, to really dial the car into the track characteristics and maximise them, while others will require the right compromise to be found.


    Take Spa-Francorchamps as one example. The intense downhill and uphill complex of Eau Rouge requires teams to increase the front ride height of the car. This is to handle the vertical compression forces of around 3g that the car is experiencing, as it is pushed into the ground through the sudden downhill-to-uphill change while at almost vMax (maximum velocity, otherwise known as top speed).


    The vertical compression of the tyres and suspension through this section of track is one of the highest on the calendar, which isn't particularly surprising considering Spa has the biggest difference in elevation change (102 metres between the highest and lowest point) in F1.


    Yet this level of compression isn't a consideration at a track like Portimao, because while there are some steep slopes, the elevation changes aren't taken at such high speeds. The elevation change from lowest to highest point is also not as dramatic as a track like Spa, with a difference of just under 30 metres, but the ups and downs are more frequent.


    However, these undulations do still have an influence on how the car handles and reacts during a lap. First, at Portimao there are uphill and downhill corner entries and exits, so a mix of gradient directions. You can't set the car up for one or the other, because that'll compromise too many of the other elements, so a middle ground has to be found to ensure the car reacts well enough in all of those scenarios.


    Second, an interesting factor in Portimao are those downhill corner exits. The loads of the car go 'light' on exits such as Turn 11, which has a 16-metre drop, the steepest decline in gradient at the track, and the car effectively just wants to go straight on. It doesn't because of gravity and downforce, but the drivers still feel a noticeable lack of grip and this can make the car more unstable. It also makes traction trickier, so there is a delay with the drivers getting the power down.


    Another track with some obvious elevation change is the Red Bull Ring in Austria. The cars don't experience compression or the 'light' feeling here, but there is track 'warp' to contend with. This is where there are different gradients on the track left to right, as you go along, effectively creating a spiral effect.


    Turn 3 in Austria is a clear example of this, because the corner creates a crest - from the uphill entry and downhill exit.

    As drivers navigate this warp, the car tends to want one wheel (the inside front on this occasion) to get some air and this upsets the car balance.


    As for the drivers...


    Looking specifically at Portimao, the elevation change has a much bigger impact on the drivers than it does the cars. The undulations create some blind corner apexes, including Turns 8, 11 and 13. This makes it tougher for them to see the entries to the corners and create reference points for braking and turning in.


    Because of this, it can make it more difficult to learn the track and build up speed during those initial laps in practice. This is certainly something Mercedes found last year, on its first visit to Portimao, where it took a little longer during practice for the drivers to settle in and know where they need to commit to their racing lines and braking points.


    Arguably the trickiest complex for the drivers is Turn 10 and 11, because it is a double-right hander with a blind entry - as the track rises by roughly 12 metres - and a steep downhill drop on the exit of 16 metres. The steeper the slope, the more an F1 car wants to become airborne. But it doesn't due to gravity and downforce.


    However, the load under the tyres (called the contact patch) reduces as a result and this impacts the grip the driver has on the exit. So, it does make the car a bit more unpredictable at these points on tracks like Portimao, where there is a dramatic drop in gradient.


    The unsighted entry to the Turn 10/11 sequence and track width means we see plenty of different approaches by the drivers - particularly during practice, where they are finding the limit. Even with the blind entry though, over time and with experience, they know exactly where to point the car.


    The elevation changes do put a little bit more force through the driver's body and make things more physically demanding during a lap. While this isn't too severe an issue in Portimao, owing to the speed the drivers tackle the crests and troughs, at a circuit like Spa-Francorchamps, this is a different story.


    The sweep through the Eau Rouge, for example, is a massive compression. Just as it puts more forces through the car and its components, additional forces are also being experienced by the driver too. Thankfully for the drivers, where elevation is concerned, these are short, sharp bursts of additional force rather than more sustained forces experienced through cornering.

    The undulating nature of some tracks has a small but important impact on the racing itself. For example, in Portimao the elevation changes and unsighted entries to certain corners create more than one line, which can create opportunities for overtaking or mistakes. But it can also make the racing line even more defined, depending on the local topography.


    Safety and visibility are further factors for the drivers to consider, as there are several sections that are unsighted. The dip before the first corner is one such example at Portimao, as is the drop after Turn 8, where you cannot see what is ahead until you peek over the crest. These are all further challenges and thought processes being added to the drivers' workload during the sessions.


    The blind corner entries also increase the risk of mistakes in Qualifying as the drivers are picking braking or turn-in points without the normal track reference points that they'd have in clear sight. So, it is tougher to be precise, particularly when on the limit during Qualifying at a track like Portimao.

    Portugal GP: Preview - Alpine

    The team is ready to take on the Algarve International Circuit for this weekend's Portuguese Grand Prix. After scoring double points last time out, Racing Director Davide Brivio looks ahead to Portimao and discusses the team's plan of action.

    How does the team reflect on Imola?

    Davide Brivio: It was a challenging weekend, especially the race with the changing weather conditions just before the start. It was the same for everyone with the strategy suddenly changing and the entire team having to adapt. We were happy to score points, even if we would always like to score more. Esteban did a good job in getting the car into Q3, which was important for him after missing out in Bahrain. For Fernando, he missed something in qualifying, but he is working very hard on his Formula 1 return. It was good to go through many different situations in the race with the wet conditions, dry conditions, safety cars and the red flag restart. We can take benefits from this and what we learnt during the weekend.


    Did the upgrades to the A521 work as expected?

    DB: The upgrades we brought to Imola on the car worked as we projected. They are important, intermediate steps. We'll continue developing and try to take the benefit from the next few races on this.


    What is Portimao like as a circuit from your perspective?

    DB: I think it's quite a unique circuit and there's a reason why everyone calls it a rollercoaster! It's quite up and down throughout, which makes it very special. The weather is likely to be different to what we had there last October, so that's something we'll keep an eye on. The track surface might have some improvements with the higher air temperature and better, overall grip levels, and that will be interesting to find out. It's a new circuit for Fernando to learn, while for Esteban, he'll aim to carry on his experience from last year. We're looking at trying to improve our performance from Imola and also improve our performance from last year at this track.


    How much are you looking forward to seeing Formula 1 cars there?

    DB: Normally all drivers like this type of track. There aren't many places which are so up and down and also fast. It's enjoyable for people watching too, so hopefully it's a good show. The first two races this season have been exciting for different reasons and, this layout can offer another interesting race. As a team, we have to learn from Imola and be ready to take the opportunities when they come.


    Esteban Ocon opened his 2021 points account in Imola after finishing ninth place in a topsy-turvy Grand Prix. The Frenchman is looking forward to taking on the rollercoaster-esque Algarve International Circuit this weekend in Portimao, aiming for more points.


    How pleased were you to score your first points of the season last time out?

    Esteban Ocon: It was nice to score our first points of the season and also our first points in Alpine colours. The race itself was not straightforward with the changing conditions and difficult on-track decisions we had to make both before and during the race. I think we learnt a lot and we can certainly put all of that knowledge into future races. The car felt good, the upgrades we brought worked well and now it's important we push on and make further progress. Clearly the midfield is very tight and there will be opportunities, which we must take.


    What is the Algarve International Circuit like to drive?

    EO:
    I'd say Portimao is one of the most enjoyable circuits to drive. It flows really well and has some really fun corner combinations. Last year, when we were there for the first time, a lot of people compared it to a rollercoaster because of all the elevation changes and quick turns we make. I was very happy when Portugal was announced on the calendar. The venue is fantastic in the Algarve, the weather should be warm, so I'm looking forward to it.


    What do you remember from last year's race and what knowledge from that experience can you put into this weekend?

    EO:
    We had an interesting race there last year in very challenging conditions with quite low grip levels. I remember the start was crazy with some rain just as the lights went out. It'll be interesting this weekend. We have the harder compound of tyres again like last year and we'll be giving it our all to have both cars in the points.


    Fernando Alonso heads to Portimao on the back of scoring his first point of the 2021 season in Imola. Despite 316 race entries in Formula 1, the two-time world champion is set to race for the first time at the impressive, undulating circuit, tucked away in the picturesque port city in the Algarve.

    You came away from a chaotic Emilia Romagna Grand Prix with your first championship point of the season, how do you feel following the weekend?


    Fernando Alonso
    :
    It was a very tough weekend for everyone. It was like doing three races in one, with the wet and dry conditions as well as the red flag. I learnt a lot from the weekend and especially after such a limited amount of testing in pre-season and only 32 laps in Bahrain during race conditions. But Formula 1 races come thick and fast, and each weekend I learn more and adapt better to the car. There is always a period of adaptation in any new team or car, but I am working hard to be back to 100%.


    What's your evaluation of the upgrades brought to the A521 last week?


    FA:
    Looking back at the weekend we were obviously happy to score our first points of the season, and the upgrades we brought to the car were positive and worked well. I felt happier with the overall feel of the car and I think there is more potential there for us to improve. The factories are working hard, and it was good to see this paying off. We'll take this positivity forward into Portugal and hopefully we can show further progression there.


    This weekend will be your first ever race in Portugal in Formula 1, are you looking forward to it?


    FA:
    It will be a totally different challenge this weekend in Portimao compared to Bahrain and Imola. The circuit is very fun to drive and I think in these modern Formula 1 cars it will be very exciting, especially with the huge elevation changes. I've only tested here before in very wet conditions, so it will be a bit of a learning curve to begin with, but I love new challenges. We want to score more points this weekend.

    The third round of this year's Formula 1 World Championship takes place at Portugal's Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, near Portimao. As was the case with the Grands Prix run in Sakhir and Imola, the drivers find themselves back on a track that they last visited just a few months ago. Last year's Portuguese Grand Prix was held on 25 October.In 2020, the drivers were unanimous in their praise for the track, which they found challenging and fun, with its climbs and drops and many blind corners. The circuit has two very long straights in the first sector, where good top speed is vital, while the second sector is very different, being more twisty. It is in fact in this sector that one finds many of the changes of gradient where a driver must rely on instinct and have total confidence in his car. The final part features medium-high speed corners, especially the last one which leads on to the start-finish straight. There are two DRS zones: on the main straight and between turns 4 and 5.

    Portuguese Grand Prix: facts & figures



    4. The race laps led by Carlos Sainz at the Portimao circuit. On slick tyres on a wet track, the Spaniard got a great start to the 2020 GP from seventh on the grid. This was the second time he had led a Grand Prix, having been out in front for one lap of last year's Italian GP, where he eventually finished second.


    18+2. The number of districts that make up Portugal, including the two autonomous islands of Madeira and the Azores. The circuit is in the Algarve, the eighth most populous area, the top three being Lisbon, Oporto and Setubal. The main city is Faro and it has just over 450,000 inhabitants.


    32. The number of potential configurations of the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, which was built in 2008. They go from the shortest, which is 3.465 kms to the longest at 4.684 kms.


    58. The number of overtaking moves in the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix, which was a record for the season. It was partly down to the wet track in the opening stages and the spectacular nature of the circuit. This race was way ahead of the second placed Styrian Grand Prix at Spielberg, which had 45 passing moves. The race with the least changes of position last year was the Emilia-Romagna at Imola, with just six.


    650. The number of Formula 1 World Championship races run in Europe, including this Sunday's, out of a total of 1037. America is next up on 207, followed by Asia on 121, Oceania with 35 and Africa on 24.


    This week in Ferrari history



    28/4. In 1974, Niki Lauda won the Spanish Grand Prix in a 312 B3-74. For the Scuderia, it ended a barren patch that had lasted over a year, since Jacky Ickx won the 1972 German Grand Prix. It was the Italian team's fiftieth win, while Clay Regazzoni's second place meant it was also the Scuderia's 28th one-two finish. That year, the Swiss driver won in Germany and was in the title fight with Emerson Fittipaldi right down to the final round, while Lauda also won in Holland.
    29/4. In 1984, Michele Alboreto won in Belgium. It was his first victory at the wheel of a Ferrari (the 126 C4). The Milanese thus became the eighth Italian to win at the wheel of a Prancing Horse car, 18 years on from Ludovico Scarfiotti's success at Monza in 1966. The other six drivers are: Alberto Ascari, Piero Taruffi, Giuseppe Farina, Luigi Musso, Giancarlo Baghetti and Lorenzo Bandini.


    30/4. After a four month run in 2019, the "Michael 50" exhibition, dedicated to Michael Schumacher's fiftieth, came to an end. The exhibition told the extraordinary story of the German seven times world champion's career with Ferrari, through the most important cars that he drove. He won 72 Grands Prix with the Scuderia, bringing home five Drivers' and six Constructors' titles.


    1/5. In 1983, Patrick Tambay triumphed in the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola in a 126 C2B. It was the Frenchman's second and last victory with Scuderia Ferrari. That year he and his teammate and fellow countryman Rene Arnoux delivered an eighth Constructors' title for the Maranello marque.

    2/5. In 1999, Michael Schumacher won the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola. The German thus took the lead in the championship standings, taking over from teammate Eddie Irvine. This was Michael's 15th win with Scuderia Ferrari, which put him equal with Niki Lauda at the top of the table for most wins with the Italian team.

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    "Alonso has been brilliant all weekend, absolutely brilliant". "A driver not always easyto love, but very easy to admire".

    Los inscritos en este GP. Giovinazzi le cederá el coche a Callum Iliott para los libres 1 y a McH le toca hacerle un huequito en su Excel.

    Parece que Red Bull ha modificado la zona central del difusor.

    Looks that Red Bull has also revised the central area on the diffuser.
