F1 returns to action after its summer shutdown with Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes narrowly holding a championship lead over Max Verstappen and Red Bull.

The final two races of the first phase of 2021 saw emotions run high as a number of high-profile incidents punctuated the racing.

After a brief pause to reset and recover some calm, the sport heads immediately into a triple-header with races in Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy.

Verstappen starts from pole with Geroge Russell causing a shock by positioning his Williams on the front row in P2 in the wet session. Hamilton is third.

Lando Norris will start from P14 having been passed fit to race by medics after his qualifying crash at Eau Rouge.

What do you think?

Sky started ripping me off so I gave them the opportunity to do something special to keep me as a customer or I was off. They didn't, and I was off.

I was on the "Variety HD" package which included all the regular family channels and documentaries, but they also bundled Sky F1 for free. I'd check against the new packages and there was never any difference. Then they started charging for a call package for my phone, which I never used. And I checked against the family package again and I was paying significantly more, with only one difference - Sky F1. Simply put, F1 wasn't worth the cost per month Sky were taking off me.

Even when I had Sky F1, I'd watch the Channel 4 coverage as I preferred DC's commentary.
