Lewis Hamilton

Formula 1 contenders are making their case for glory in the early stages of the F1 2020 calendar.

Defending champion Lewis Hamilton has made a terrific start in his bid to draw level with Michael Schumacher’s legendary total of seven world titles.

Hamilton, in the vastly superior Mercedes winning machine, has looked untouchable in 2020 despite the last-lap scare at Silverstone last weekend.

The Brit’s main competition was expected to come in the shape of 2019 runner up and Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas, though the Finnish ace has failed to master the car in the same way as Hamilton, allowing Max Verstappen to capitalise in his Red Bull.

Ferrari’s early dire form has thrown off hopes of Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel making a credible challenge for the title, but the midfield battle is shaping up beautifully with drivers from Racing Point, Renault and McLaren all scrapping it out behind the main pack.

McLaren in particular have started nicely in 2020 with British youngster Lando Norris making waves in the opening gambits, but can he maintain his form?

F1 results so far this season

Austrian Grand Prix

1st place – Valtteri Bottas

2nd place – Charles Leclerc

3rd place – Lando Norris

Bottas claimed victory with a strong opening showing in Austria. An explosive race saw just 11 cars make it to the finish line.

Lando Norris capitalised on the chaos with a stunning conclusion to his race. The British star finished 4.8 seconds behind Lewis Hamilton, though Hamilton’s five-second penalty saw Norris leap ahead to land his first spot on the podium.

Styrian Grand Prix

1st place – Lewis Hamilton

2nd place – Valtteri Bottas

3rd place – Max Verstappen

Not quite the same level of fireworks from the second run of the Red Bull Ring, unless you were dressed all in red.

Ferrari endured a shocker as Charles Leclerc slammed into the side of Sebastian Vettel, retiring both cars within the opening three laps as Hamilton cruised to victory without breaking a sweat.

Hungarian Grand Prix

1st place – Lewis Hamilton

2nd place – Max Verstappen

3rd place – Valtteri Bottas

Hamilton, without breaking a sweat, simply cruised his way around the track, boasting near-unprecedented car dominance in the Mercedes winning machine.

Teammate Valtteri Bottas got off to an appalling start and failed to seize Max Verstappen in the final few laps, much to the delight of the Red Bull team who were forced to fix issues with Verstappen’s car just minutes before the race after crashing during the simple drive to the grid.

British Grand Prix

1st place – Lewis Hamilton

2nd place – Max Verstappen

3rd place – Charles Leclerc

Another day at Silverstone, another win for Hamilton. He sailed through the 52 laps with relative ease, though without truly building up an unassailable lead until late on.

A puncture – and subsequent tyre blowout – sparked wild scenes in the final lap, but by that point he had built up a sizeable gap over Verstappen to prevent being pipped at the post.
