An imperious display from Max Verstappen saw him breeze to his second victory of 2020 at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix season finale, leading home the Mercedes duo of Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton, who had no answer to the Red Bull’s pace around the Yas Marina Circuit.

Top Point Drives of the Day

  1. Daniel Ricciardo (Renault): 32 points, finishing 7th from P11 in his last race for Renault
  2. Max Verstappen (Red Bull Racing-Honda): 26 points, concluding a weekend sweep of qualifying and the Sunday race
  3. Alexander Albon (Red Bull Racing-Honda): 20 points, turning up the pace to finish 4th ahead of Lando Norris

Our Game

John Lo was the leader on our day, earning top points on what turned out to be a difficult race to handicap, earning 110 out of possible 148 points, and having the better driver in five of the nine scoring rows.

Congratulations to Ian, our 2020 Champion!

Congratulations to Ian upon his first Prediction Challenge win! Danielle came on strong the last two races of the season to secure second place ahead of John Cavelti who repeated his podium finish of 2019.

I hope all players enjoyed this Formula 1 Prediction Challenge! and the chance to match wits with other motorsport fans in this most unusual year! Thank you for playing! ~ Michael

Sergio Perez’s F1 future may be uncertain – but whatever happens, the Mexican is now an F1 winner, after he benefitted from a nightmare Sakhir Grand Prix for Mercedes to claim his first ever Formula 1 victory, as Renault’s Esteban Ocon and Racing Point’s Lance Stroll completed the podium on a wild evening in Bahrain.


Top Point Drives of the Day

  1. Esteban Ocon (Renault): 40 points, splitting the two Racing Points on the podium after qualifying 11th
  2. Sergio Pérez (Racing Point-BWT Mercedes): 33 points, earning the victory after avoiding the crash that eliminated the second row of the starting grid
  3. Lance Stroll (Racing Point-BWT Mercedes): 30 points, finishing third after qualifying 10th

Our Game

Danielle’s choice of Lance Stroll was critical in her battle with John Cavelti, providing her with the margin to leapfrog into second place, and giving her a 19-point lead to defend in the last Grand Prix in a week’s time.
