F1 2021 'one of the greatest' seasons ever - Domenicali

Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has described 2021 as "one of the great seasons in F1" with battles in both the drivers' and constructors' championships seeming destined to go the distance.

With just six races remaining, Max Verstappen holds a slender six-point lead over title rival Lewis Hamilton.

Conversely, Mercedes holds a 36-point margin over Red Bull in the constructors' fight but with reliability beginning to bite and the complete unknowns of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, Domenicali is expecting "incredible" things from the final run-in.

"I can’t wait for the next six events as they are six opportunities for something new and incredible to happen in what has so far been one of the great seasons in F1," he wrote in his F1.com column.

"Last time we found ourselves in such a tight fight for the championship, I was on the team side at Ferrari, with the title going down to the final race in 2010 and 2012 – so I know what it means to live this kind of intensity."

Not only is the fight fierce to be crowned champion, but the battle continues to rage between McLaren and Ferrari over third.

Although McLaren currently enjoys a 7.5 point lead over Ferrari, circuit characteristics have seen the landscape shift constantly since the summer break.

"It’s fantastic for Formula 1 to have such an intense fight, but I don’t want to only focus on that, as we have the fight for other positions," continued Domenicali.

"McLaren and Ferrari, for example, are battling hard for third and we have battles all the way down the field, with the final positions in the constructors’ championship critical for teams regarding their positioning for the future."
