The 2021 Formula 1 season is nearing its conclusion as it races at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar.

A last-minute addition to the F1 calendar, Qatar forms the final part of this latest triple-header with the battle for supremacy finely poised.

Lewis Hamilton’s spectacular weekend in Sao Paulo saw him cut Max Verstappen’s lead to 14 points with three rounds to go.

Mercedes extended its lead over Red Bull to 11 points, while Ferrari now sits 31.5 points clear of McLaren in the race for third.

The Qatar circuit consists of mostly medium speed corners with a long start-finish straight. 

Overtaking will be difficult but qualifying will be a real spectacle.

The remainder of the 2021 F1 calendar:

Saudi Arabian Grand Prix - December 5
