December 6, 2020
image-1

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.
