F1 Round 1 - Austrian GP
Updated: Jul 13
Valtteri Bottas won the first race and Lando Norris finished in 3rd
On this year of 2020 Bottas won the 1st round of the Season in Austria with an exciting ending with Charles Leclerc in second and Lando Norris from McLaren in third. A little before, Lewis Hamilton bumped with Alex Albon (replay from Brazil GP 2019), so the British driver got a 5 seconds penalty, which caused him in the end to drop from his 2nd position to 4th, although he did everything to cover the gap between him and the drivers behind, it was not enough.
Luck for Lando Norris, not so good for Alex Albon from Redbull, as he could won this race and it would be the first on his F1 career, it is getting closer and closer, we all can feel it.
The Season just started, but we had some good surprises on the 1st race and an easy win for Mercedes with 1-2 escaped in the last few laps.
