The Formula 1 2020 season begins. In the final year of the current regulations there is a lot at stack - can Mercedes continue their winning streak? Can Lewis Hamilton equal Michael Schumacher's championship wins record? Will Max Verstappen, Sebastian Vettel or Charles Leclerc be able to take the championship?
The car reveals are now done and the cars have already now hit the track in February for the winter testing sessions.
The season opening racing in Australia was scheduled for Sunday 15th March, however due to the Covid-19 spread the race was cancelled - since then we have missed the first 10 races of the season, however plans are being made to begin the season in July, beginning with back to back races in Austria (5th and 12th July) followed by back to back races in Britain (26th July and 2nd August) and a race in Hungry (9th August). This is then expected to be followed by another triple header, with races anticipated in Spain, Belgium and Italy. After this it is hoped that races will then be possible in Asia and the Americas, with the season then coming to a close with 2 races in Bahrain and then the season finale in Abu Dhabi in December.
