The New Year brings new hope with it. Tearing off one calendar, we put up another in its place. Well, that action symbolizes our renewed hopes. The F1 world also has the same expectation from its new year, a better one in short. This year saw pilots having to survive through COVID.
With next season coming up, the FIA is undertaking a colossal responsibility on its shoulders. With the onset of COVID still at large, conducting a full-scale 23-round championship is risky. However, keeping the passion of F1 away from fans and pilots would be a sin far too great. Thus, with extreme caution, we gear up for the new season.
2020 has been quite a difficult year for everyone, and people around the world are hopeful for the next year. Well, F1 drivers are no different. At the dawn of the new year, drivers from all teams took to social media to wish their fans.
