This Sunday’s race of the Grand Prix of the Formula 1 it was the end point for the most difficult season in the history of the category. The global coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) complicated the organization of the calendar that he wanted to start normally at the Australian Grand Prix on March 15 of this year, however it could not be carried out.
It seems far away, but nine months have passed since the team Mclaren confirm some positive cases of COVID-19, and cause the category to confirm the momentary suspension of the category. Four months of confinement, waiting, news and above all, a lot of anxiety for the return of the maximum activity of motor sport in the world. Formula 1 was already surprising.
“A lot of water has passed under the bridge,” goes the popular saying. Those four months without activity generated many definitions. The most important was in Ferrari. Carlos Sainz confirmed his arrival to the Italian team, replacing Sebastian Vettel. It was the bomb of the season. Vettel left Maranello without achieving his great goal: to be a World Champion dressed in red.
The 2020 season of the category will leave an important memory for fans: Lewis Hamilton. All the detractors of the Briton do not give credit to the achievements he is obtaining. The Mercedes driver achieved what nobody thought could be done: the records of Michael Schumacher. In the first instance, Hamilton took the mark with the most victories, and then in the Turkish GP, with the seven world titles. The numbers of the year were very varied. 23 drivers, 17 Grand Prix, 13 drivers took the podium, 12 different countries and 2 new winners in the category.
While many of us think that 2020 is the worst year in history, let’s not celebrate its end yet. Nobody knows what will happen in 2021. With a vaccine in the approval process, the Formula 1 calendar is already presented. If nothing goes wrong, the preseason will begin on March 2, and will stretch until the 4 of the same month. For its part, on March 21, the Albert Park circuit will hope to have its long-awaited GP and inaugurate the season.
We will have to wait. You will miss the noise, the wait every week and enjoy every session on the weekends. For their part, the pilots will have a well-deserved rest after having five uninterrupted months of activity. Separate paragraph for the organization of the International Automobile Federation (FIA). With Liberty Media (Company that owns the rights), they took an unthinkable championship out of the gallery and that gave us a little entertainment this year to forget, chapó !.
