F1 is in Istanbul


Formula-1 is in Istanbul for today's Grand Prix, the weather like the previous GP can bring great surprises with rain during the race, so the result at the end might be unpredictable.


Last year in Turkish GP 2020


Hamilton won the race and the World Driver Championship for the 7th time in his career, he matched with the same number of titles as Michael Schumacher, a mark that nobody thought would be reached.

It was a rainy race from back to forth, Bottas finished in a sad 14th position, far away from Hamilton and couldn't fight anymore for the driver's title.

Sergio Peréz finished on an incredible 2nd position, just ahead of Sebastian Vettel, who did a great consistent race, finishing in 3rd, just ahead of his team mate Charles Leclerc, 4th after a mistake on the last curves of the race, while trying to pass the Mexican driver.

In 5th, Carlos Sainz, the Spanish driver did very well and nearly passed Leclerc at the end as well. Max Verstappen, who spun many times during the race, finishing just in 6th, ahead of Albon in 7th.

Lando Norris got the fastest lap of the race, getting the extra 1 point (fastest lap award 2020).
