Standings after GP Turkey 2020 and 7 things that struck us

To be completely up to date again in the cappuccino corner, we have gathered the stand after the GP Turkey 2020 and some other things that we noticed for you.

The best races are those that were not initially on the calendar. Styria, 70th Anniversary, Mugello, Imola, Mugello, Portimão and Turkey were without exception a spectacle to behold.

Much, very much happened. That is why we have all the final positions and conclusions that matter. So the position after GP Turkey 2020 and seven things we noticed about the race.

We have to race on ice rinks more often

Or in other words: enjoy driving in the winter. In any case, this results in more fun races. The talents always stand up in situations like this. But it does make the races much more fun to watch anyway, simply because you don’t know what’s going to happen. So Zandvoort and Assen have to stop arguing and simply nominate Thialf in Heerenveen.

Vettel has found its shape

It simply cannot be that Vettel has suddenly forgotten. It is a four-time world champion who excels under good conditions, but also under difficult. Just like Hockenheim 2019, Vettel proves that he can drive considerably better than his positions in the final standings would suggest. The German kept his cool, made no stupid mistakes and took advantage of other people’s mistakes.


Lewis Hamilton is simply the GOAT

The Mercedes is by far the best car of the past 6 years. So good that you actually had no chance in another car. Because Hamilton is always at the front, it is sometimes difficult to appreciate the qualities of the British driver. The Briton rode unparalleled and clear. Unfortunately there are too many dry, boring races where he strikes the titles together at the front, but with this race Hamilton has put a deserved crown on his seventh world title.

Finally a podium for Pérez

Every now and then Lance Stroll shows that he can drive really well. It almost looks like the Bas Dost of F1. In itself quite nice and at times brilliant. So much for Stroll, because Pérez was close to the Canadian all weekend. But where Lance had no grip at all on the second set of tires, Pérez was able to hold his position. In addition, we ask ourselves aloud: was it useful to hold Stroll and say goodbye to Pérez…?

Finnish Bottas is not doing well in Finnish conditions

Lewis had the best car. That means that Bottas’s car can’t be much slower. Bottas comes from Finland and there you learn rallying and drifting before you become toilet trained. Bottas did not seem to have done that, because the Finn spun several times. Hamilton has therefore definitely brought something extra.

Verstappen also makes mistakes

It cannot be said on the Dutch media, but Verstappen also makes mistakes. It was precisely these mistakes that prevented him from winning the race. The start was dramatic and that was certainly not the first time. There may still be a technical explanation for this, but the opportunistic overtaking attempt on Pérez was simply a shame.

No problem for the final standings and the Dutchman is an excellent driver, so his moment will come. Until then, the Dutchman has won as many races for Red Bull as Mark Webber.


There was no safety car situation!

The track was really slippery (to say slippery is to tie the cat to the bacon). Because most cars regularly flew off the track. You would expect Bernd Maylander to come out several times. However, nothing could be further from the truth, except for a virtual safety car situation, there was no physical safety car.

Did the AB editors correctly predict the GP Turkey 2020?

Wouter was closest. Techzle’s Chief Tire Smoker thus reaches 99 points. He was the only one who also awarded Pérez a podium place and that Bottas would have no chance. Jaap made a few bold statements that could have been true, but did not yield any points.
