How to watch Imola Formula 1 Grand Prix live in Canada

Can anyone halt the dominance of Lewis Hamilton in the second race of the 2021 Formula 1 season in Imola, Italy?

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton got Mercedes off to another flying start with victory in the season-opening event in Bahrain last month. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen wasn’t far behind and Hamilton’s Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas rounded out the podium.

Dutchman Verstappen is widely considered the man most likely to stop Hamilton from surpassing the record of world titles he shares with Michael Schumacher. The pair locked horns in a thrilling duel in the Bahrain desert, with Hamilton claiming his record-extending 96th career win by less than a second.

Canadian Lance Stroll picked up a point in the debut race after finishing 10th for Aston Martin. Compatriot Nicholas Latifi will be aiming to improve on an 18th-placed finish for Williams in Bahrain.

Who will win Imola Formula 1 Grand Prix?

Considering Hamilton won 11 races in a dominant 2020 season, it’s hard to go past the master driver with the fastest car. Having said that, Ferrari will want to push hard to win this event at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, which is on the calendar for the second year.

We expect a strong showing from Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, while Verstappen should again be nipping at Hamilton’s heels. But we’ll stick with the Mercedes driver to gain momentum in his bid for a record eighth world title.
