Formula One season kicks off, and here's what you need to know

The 2021 Formula One season is officially underway. Please tell me you got up Sunday morning to watch the Bahrain GP on ESPN2! If not, you should have. I did -- though to quote old Obi-Wan Kenobi, it was from a certain point of view.

That POV was from behind the wheel of an Aston Martin Vantage, sitting in a parking lot-turned-drive-in theater atop a Los Angeles parking deck. Marty Smith and I were surrounded by a panoramic view of the Hollywood Hills and a power-packed view of Ferraris, Bugattis, Lamborghinis, and all sorts of other supercars ending in i's that neither you nor I can afford.
