Really, not much else needs to be said about Formula 1’s flagship race, just as not much can be said about the 2023 Formula 1 season thus far.
The season has been short on drama, excitement and unpredictability. The podium combinations say as much: of five races this year, Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez have appeared on the podium four times. A Red Bull driver has taken the top step on the podium in all five races.
Further, there have been just three different combinations on the podium: Perez, Verstappen and Fernando Alonso (three times); Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and Alonso; and Perez, Verstappen and Charles Leclerc. That’s emblematic of F1’s lack of parity, which isn’t exactly a new thing.
