Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2019 and final results

Abu Dhabi was a dominant performance from Hamilton who ends the season with 11 wins. Verstappen finished second with Leclerc third. Bottas drove from the back of the grid to fourth.

In RealityF1, the RF1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was a 12 way tie! The team to have for this race was Bottas, Albon, Red Bull Racing and McLaren.

The 2019 RealityF1 Championship was won by Rattler, congratulations Rattler you become the nineteenth RealityF1 Champion! Rattler moved up to the top spot in the final race with ccsmse falling to second and Tom Sykes third. Muncher was the top ranked rookie player (someone playing RealityF1 for the first time) in joint 16th.

In the league competition, NESTF1 took the top spot and with it their third league championship.

In the country league competition it was New Zealand who took victory from Finland and Portugal. Finland carry on their impressive run having not been outside of the top three since 2011.

As the season has now ended I have updated the player rankings (a leaderboard of all the players who've contested a RealityF1 season since the game started in 2001). The top ranking player, for the second year running, is Gary ahead of Keith.

As usual, I'm keen to hear any feedback you may have on the game so I can continue to improve it so please email me your views and suggestions for the future.

The site will re-open on Monday and, although you won't be able to create a team for the new season yet, you will still be able to update your profile and account details if you wish (should you change email addresses etc).

RealityF1 will return for the 2020 season. The provisional date for the first race is the 15th March 2020. A month or so before the first race I'll email you to let you know that you can create your team for the coming season.

It only remains for me to thank you for playing RealityF1, I look forward to losing to you again in 2020.

Brazilian Grand Prix 2019 results

The Brazilian Grand Prix was an exciting race with drama, overtaking and safety cars. The race was won by Verstappen but he twice overtook Hamilton on track to take the win. Mercedes suffered a rare mechanical failure with Bottas and the two Ferraris collided and both cars failed to finish. In the closing stages of the race it looked like Albon would take second but a late collision with Hamilton ended his chances. Hamilton finished third behind Gasly (his first podium) but would later be given a five second penalty for the collision with Albon. This promoted Sainz to third place, his first podium and a great effort as he'd started at the back of the field.

In the RealityF1 competition it was C-J that finished first in the 2019 RealityF1 Brazilian Grand Prix. The team to have was Verstappen, Sainz Jnr, Red Bull Racing and McLaren.

In the 2019 RealityF1 Championship ccsmse holds on to the top spot with Rattler jumping three places to re-take second spot.

United States Grand Prix 2019 results

The USA Grand Prix was a great win for Bottas but it's come a little too late. Having taken a somewhat unlikely pole the Finn made the most of a two-stop strategy to pass Hamilton in the closing stages of the race. Hamilton was on old tyres due to a one-stop strategy and struggling for grip by the end. Bottas took an excellent victory but Hamilton, finishing second, clinched his sixth Driver's World Championship.

In the RealityF1 competition it was Asko that finished first in the 2019 RealityF1 USA Grand Prix. The team to have was Bottas, Albon, Red Bull Racing and McLaren.

Mexican Grand Prix 2019 results

The Mexican Grand Prix was another masterclass from Hamilton and the strategists at Mercedes. They were able to make a one stop strategy work and have a particularly long stint on the hard tyres to take the win. Vettel was second and Bottas third. Bottas' result means the championship could not be decided in Mexico.

In the RealityF1 competition it was Mgzinha that finished first in the 2019 RealityF1 Mexican Grand Prix. The team to have was Hamilton, PĂ©rez, Renault and Williams.

In the 2019 RealityF1 Championship ccsmse holds on to the top spot with PaulSm in second.
