The great F1 duel that will be recreated in the 2021 midfield

Ten years ago, one of the biggest rivalries in Formula 1 was Fernando Alonso vs Sebastian Vettel. Ben Edwards looks forward to it happening all over again at the head of the midfield in 2021.

Two out of three ain't bad, as Meat Loaf crooned in the 1970s, but the third configuration of the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain did mark a significant point in F1 history back in 2010.

Remembered for Fernando Alonso's victory in his debut race for Ferrari, it marked only the second win for the team in an 18-race period. The Spanish/Italian combination started perfectly, matching Kimi Raikkonen's debut win for the Scuderia in 2007, which helped Kimi to the championship that year by a single point.
