The Three Crowns, Nottingham

The 2021 Formula One season is set to reach a dramatic conclusion as Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen battle for the drivers championship title and there are plenty of venues in Nottingham to watch the race unfold.

Hamilton and Verstappen go into the penultimate round of the season – at a brand-new street circuit in Saudi Arabia – separated by only eight points in the world championship.

While the Dutchman holds a slender advantage in the championship standings – it’s the reigning world champion who has momentum on his side – with victories in the last two races to eat into Verstappen’s championship advantage.
