Lewis Hamilton was infected with COVID-19 and had to give up F1 Sakhir GP

Lewis Hamilton just won the Bahrain Grand Prix last week, but due to COVID-19, he missed an appointment with the Sakhir Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton was infected with COVID-19 so he did not attend the Sakhir Grand Prix, the penultimate race of the 2020 season. Before that, he just won Bahrain Grand Prix and it was the 11th victory this season.

But now, Hamilton is put on quarantine after being examined three times last week. The previous times have been negative, including the last time on Sunday.

As soon as the news that Lewis Hamilton was stuck with COVID-19, one of the things that the organizers of Sakhir Grand Prix 2020 are most worried about must be whether there are any F1 stars to follow. The focus was on Max Verstappen because Red Bull’s racer had 7 contacts with the World Champion.

Fortunately, Max Verstappen’s sample was negative. Before that at the Bahrain Grand Prix, Verstappen not only stood on the same stage to win with Hamilton, but also awarded the Cup to the British driver, and they attended the press conference together.

Hamilton’s absence is seen as an opportunity for Verstappen to win the Sakhir Grand Prix when the main rival seems to be just Mercedes Valtteri Bottas. Of course, it is impossible to ignore the fact that Mercedes transferred George Russell from Williams to temporarily replace Hamilton.

In real life, Lewis Hamilton’s shoes are too small for George Russell’s size, but on the track, no one thinks that young British talent has enough power to fit the legendary men’s shoes.

Hamilton won the pole at the Grand Prix Tuscan

Lewis Hamilton beat the Mercedes teammate, Valtteri Bottas, to get the starting right on the Mugello track, Ferrari’s home ground.

The 1-minute 15,144-second achievement performed by Hamilton in the classification round on September 12 was only faster than Bottas’s performance of 0.059 seconds. Red Bull Max Verstappen racer was far behind 0.35 seconds, but still easily took the right to start third, just ahead of teammate Alexander Albon.

Meanwhile, the fifth place in the home qualifying round is considered an encouraging result for Charles Leclerc in the context of his Ferrari having many difficulties in the 1000 race. The remaining member of Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel is only starting 14th.

Engine power, experience were promoted at the right time and luckily helped Hamilton achieve the highest ranking achievement on the Mugello race, Scarperia e San Piero, Italy on September 12.

Bottas soon proved to be a fierce competitor to Hamilton at Mugello by leading all three test runs. In the qualifying round, the Finnish driver of the Mercedes team continued to play on par with Hamilton.

Bottas was 0.029 seconds faster than his teammate in the first qualifying round (Q1). In Q2, Hamilton regained his original position when he outperformed Bottas by 0.013 seconds. By the first turn of Q3, the British driver continued to widen the gap when he appeared first on the track and achieved 1 minute 15,144 seconds.

Bottas followed suit, but only managed 1 minute 15,203 seconds, 0.059 seconds behind Hamilton. Verstappen ran after the Mercedes team in the first run and only achieved 1 minute 15,546 seconds.

The second run of Q3

In the second run of Q3, Hamilton continued to be early on the track, but he did not improve his performance, only achieving 1 minute 15.318 seconds of results. Verstappen raised the record to 1 minute 15,509 seconds but not enough to surpass the Mercedes duo.

Running was almost the last, but Bottas could not beat his teammates when Esteban Ocon (Renault) drives away caused the yellow flag to be raised. The cars had to slow down, so the Finnish driver could not pass the first run.

Before the Mugello race, Leclerc predicted Ferrari would not be as inferior as the previous two races at Spa-Francorchamps and Monza. However, the Monaco driver probably did not dare to think of him starting fifth, after only four cars from Mercedes and Red Bull. In contrast, teammate Vettel still dived at the bottom of the middle group and was 0.534 seconds slower than Leclerc.

Hamilton finished first at British GP 2020 (Part 1)

Having a flat tire in the final round, Lewis Hamilton finished first in the British Grand Prix, while teammate Mercedes F1, Valtteri Bottas finished 11th despite a similar incident.

Hamilton completed 52 laps in 1 hour 28 minutes 1,283 seconds, faster than runner-up Max Verstappen 5,856 seconds. But this gap does not represent the superiority of the W11 during the race. In the final rounds, two Mercedes cars took turns exploding tires to make the race more interesting. However, that was not enough for the opponents to overthrow the dominance of the German racing team.

Charles Leclerc dragged through the last round with his front tire exploding

The first part of the race was intriguing, before going back to the familiar path in the previous stages – the two W11s quickly went far away. Bottas repeatedly put pressure on Hamilton in the starting round but soon fell behind.

Charles Leclerc quickly overtook Verstappen at Turn 2, but by Turn 4, Ferrari’s driver had to return the position to the opponent. At the back, Lando Norris also exerted a strong pressure, making Leclerc unable to fully focus on chasing the top 3. The heat of the early departure rounds was reduced due to the collision phase between Alexandre Albon (Red Bull) and Kevin Magnussen (Haas).

The collision phase and the accident in the first half of the race made the vehicle safe twice deployed, to serve the cleaning of the track. This continuous interruption made the tire tactics of the racing teams turn up quite a lot. Starting with an average set of tires, Mercedes plans to adopt a 1-pit tactic, whereby the two W11s will finish the race with hard tires.

However, both Hamilton and Bottas had to return to the tire-changing pit early on the second appearance of safety vehicles in round 13, when they saw rivals constantly changing tires. Replacing tires much earlier than expected makes maintaining a rigid tire for the rest of the race a difficult problem for riders.
