The fresh Formula 1 season is taking shape with four races under its belt so far in the F1 2020 calendar.
Mercedes have engineered a masterpiece for the current season, with a car that has proven its worth as the fastest on the grid by a considerable margin.
The constructor standings are already painting a picture of things to come, with the German team inevitably dominating at the top following four consecutive wins in the opening weeks.
Ferrari are woefully off the pace, with Sebastian Vettel in particular having a rough time in 2020, though Max Verstappen has kept Red Bull competitive near the top after consecutive second-place finishes.
