You live and you learn, Lando.
The grand prize in Mother Russia came down to Mother Nature, with Lewis Hamilton hiding behind a spinning Lando Norris to claim victory in Sochi.
The result was bitter for young Lando, who tried to resist the elements to take home the checkered flag. Unfortunately, the rain-soaked track had other plans, and the McLaren driver slipped off it.
Now, with drivers’ championship leaders Hamilton and Max Verstappen separated by two measly points (246.5-244.5) and the schedule shrinking, Norris’s bid for third place in the 2021 championship race will be a bit more. difficult than him. You may have imagined earlier in the season.
However, his search continues in Turkey this weekend.
Here’s what you need to know about this weekend’s F1 race:

Throughout, there are 23 scheduled races in the 2021 F1 season, with the Portuguese Grand Prix as the last race added, sliding down the agenda the first week of March.
