Hamilton again! The British driver match with the winning record 91 wins in F1!
Surprised to know that Nico Hülkenberg almost run for Red Bull on this last weekend, instead of racing for Racing Point, as Alex Albon test for Corona virus was not showing yet as negative, the team was in contact with the German driver to be his replacement, in case the Thai boy got a positive result for the virus, luckily the result at the end came out to be negative and everything goes as planned.
Hamilton ton the race with Verstappen in 2nd and Daniel Riccardo in 3rd, we do not see the Australian driver in the podium since his last victory in Monaco, 2018 and now the Team Principal of Renault, Cyril Abiteboul, will need to do a tattoo, as promised, in case Riccardo got the podium, let see which one will be.
The British driver won his 91st GP, matching the record of Michael Schumacher, the two are now the ones with most wins in F1, but certainly Lewis win pass the German driver to become the most successful driver of all times, his 7th World Driver Championship is getting closer and closer.
Peréz did an excellent job finishing in 4th, the Mexican driver finished just ahead of Carlos Sainz, who finished in 5th with Pierre Gasly in 6th. The Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc did a consistent race, finishing in 7th, ahead of the incredible Hülkenberg, the German driver without practicing anything before the race, starting from 20th, finished in 8th and was the driver of the day, super well done.
In 9th was Romain Grosjean and in 10th Antonio Giovinazzi.
Max Verstappen got the fastest lap of the race, getting the extra 1 point for that, so far Lewis is winning on this category, having 4 fastest laps out of 11 races (fastest lap award 2020).
