A fantastic race took place in Turkey in Istanbul, under a rain that wet the track for a long time, the conditions were really bad, the cars were sliding as if nothing had happened. We have seen a lot of overtaking, but also a lot of mistakes that the drivers made trying to do the best possible.
Obviously, even if he started from the sixth potion on the grid, Lewis Hamilton won the race, placing himself in front of Perez and Sebastian Vettel, who showed how much his 4 world championships are worth, incredible together with his teammate Leclerc, who had the chance to finish second , but a mistake at the last corner made him slip into fourth.
Nothing to take away from the performance of the Maranello team which had a truly excellent weekend, Vettel had managed to keep up with his Lewis car, but then the Englishman never gave up and reached the end of the race with only one pit. Its intermediate rain tires lasted to the end, like Perez’s, while the two SF1000s both finished with two stops.
It was an exciting race, Verstappen and Albon also maintained the Leadership for a few laps, but the weather conditions were too adverse and both ended up in the back after some spin. Racing Point was not bad but it took Stroll from first to ninth.
It was not a good weekend for Valtteri Bottas who finished in fourteenth position following many mistakes.
Here is the ranking of the 2020 Turkish Grand Prix:
And yes, Lewis Hamilton has caught up with Michael Schumacher and won his seventh driver’s world championship, his fourth in a row. Recall that this legend won in: 2008,2014,2015,2017,2018,2019 and 2020. This year he broke many records among which perhaps the most important one, namely the career victory record, is the most successful driver in the history of Formula 1! The reward therefore signs an incredible goal that will hardly be canceled from the history of this competition. For the seventh consecutive year, one of his drivers wins the drivers ‘title and he has also won the constructors’ title for 7 years.
The 2020 driver classification that led Lewis to the mathematical victory is as follows:
