🏁 Hamilton Delivers Lights-to-Flag Performance at Losail

November 21, 2021
image-6

Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton has closed the gap to title rival Max Verstappen following a dominant victory in the inaugural Qatar Grand Prix at the Losail International Circuit, with Verstappen recovering from a grid drop that saw him start P7 to finish second, as Alpine’s Fernando Alonso took the final podium position.


Top Point Drives of the Day

  1. Sergio Pérez (Red Bull Racing-Honda): 37 points, coming back from a poor Q2 session to finish on Grand Prix Sunday
  2. Max Verstappen (Red Bull Racing-Honda): 33 points, doing his best after a grid penalty to keep pace with Lewis Hamilton
  3. Lance Stroll (Aston Martin-Mercedes): 26 points, earning 6th place from P12 qualifying

Our Game

Ian’s top score (earning best points in just 5 of 9 scoring rows on what was a tricky race to predict) has helped him move into 4th place and within clear striking distance of the podium with two races still to take place. John Lo’s lead looks safe for the season, while only 24 points separate Wes in second place and John Cavelti in fifth.
