The Maranello marque has planned several initiatives, starting with a celebratory livery. Over the weekend, the SF1000s will feature a Burgundy colour, which is a faithful reproduction of the shade of red of the very first Prancing Horse Formula 1 car, the 125 F1, which took to the track in the Monaco Grand Prix on 21 May 1950.
Lewis Hamilton scored the 85th victory of his Formula One career, his first of the 2020 season and his second win at the Red Bull Ring, winning out over his Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas and the Red Bull of Max Verstappen.
Lewis Hamilton claimed his 84th victory in Formula One – his eleventh of the 2019 season and fifth at the Yas Marina Circuit, Max Verstappen overcame a power unit problem to pass Charles Leclerc and finish second .
Scuderia Ferrari has taken its first official win of the season, thanks to a great performance from Charles Leclerc at the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit. The Monegasque managed the 44 lap race to perfection, on his way to his maiden F1 win, the first also for a driver from Monaco. This fantastic result came at the end of what was a very difficult weekend for the world of motor sport, following the tragic death in Saturday’s Formula 2 race of young French driver Anthoine Hubert.
After two days of very hot weather, the German Grand Prix was held in wet conditions nearly all the way to the finish, leading to a chaotic race with multiple pit stops and four safety cars. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen eventually won the race, having stopped five times, ahead of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat.
Lewis Hamilton claimed his 80th victory in Formula One, his seventh of the 2019 season and sixth at the British Grand Prix, making him the most successful driver at this event. Valtteri Bottas came home in P2 to complete the 1-2 for the team Merdedes AMG.
Valtteri Bottas took his fourth career victory today – his first in Australia and first of the 2019 season. Valtteri finished the race over 20 seconds clear of the field, and even claimed a bonus point for the fastest lap of the race to come away from Albert Park with a full 26 points.
