Reasons why you should be watching F1 this season

Reason #1: There have been 5 different winning drivers and 5 different winning teams over the first 5 races of the season. Even the Williams F1 team have won a race this year, with their last victory taking place in 2004.

Reason #2: A single race win, equal to 25 points, separates 1st from 8th place in the drivers championship standings. Keep in mind that there are still 15 races left, so it’s still anyone’s season.

Reason #3: Fernando Alonso is driving the hell out of a lackluster Ferrari. Nothing else to add to that.

Reason #4: The next race is Monaco, which is always a beauty to watch and never short on drama. With Lewis Hamilton being usually quick at Monaco, could he possibly become this season’s 6th different winner (refer to Reason #1)?

Reason #5: Michael Schumacher is actually competitive this season, except for some mechanical issues and a few stupid driver errors which he’s made. Could he pull one out of the hat and win a race this season?

Reason #6: America returns to the F1 calendar with a grand prix in Austin, Texas on the 18th of November.

Reason #7: It’s a season in which even the top teams are making rookie errors. I can’t remember the last time I have seen so many races affected by mistakes in the pit lane, especially by McLaren F1’s pit crew.

Reason #8: Kimi Räikkönen is back and the “Ice Man” still knows how to fly in an F1 car.

Reason #9: Pirelli have blessed the season with tires that are unpredictable at every track, making it tough on the teams, but brilliant for the fans.

      It has been such a great season that, trust me, I’m probably missing many more reasons why everyone should watch F1 this year!

      It was a formatting issue; depended on which platform you were using to view the article. Anyways, tried to amend it… should be fine now. Thanks!
