Turkish Grand Prix 2020 results

F1's return to Turkey for the first time since 2011 gave us a tremendous race. The track was recently resurfaced and the surface was very slippery. Heavy rain also affected qualifying and the race. The Mercedes struggled to get heat into their tyres and it was Stroll who got the job done to take his first pole position in F1. In wet conditions on Sunday the Canadian led the Grand Prix as cars pirouetted and slid off the track. The Ferraris both had excellent starts but Verstappen and Bottas both span several times. Hamilton dropped back but slowly edged his way through the field and playing the long game paid off when he passed Perez for the lead. With late rain forecast Hamilton decided to stay out on very worn inters and the gamble paid off as the rain didn't materialise. Another masterclass from Hamilton resulted in another race win and with it he secured a record equalling seventh World Driver's Championship.

Behind Hamilton both McLarens started from a long way down the grid and slowly fought their way through. This gave Wizzard the win in the 2020 RealityF1 Turkish Grand Prix. The team to have was Norris, Sainz Jnr and two McLarens.

Emilia Romagna Grand Prix 2020 results

F1's return to Imola did not disappoint. The two day format meant an interesting qualifying session as the drivers got used to the circuit and the track 'rubbered in'. It was Bottas that took pole and, on Sunday, he started well with Verstappen passing Hamilton into second. At the pit stops Bottas covered an early stop by Verstappen but Hamilton tried to go longer on his medium tyres. A virtual safety car then played into Hamilton's hands and allowed him to pit and hold onto the lead. A late failure for Verstappen then saw a frantic dash to the line for the midfield teams as some drivers opted for a late stop and fresh rubber. In the end it was Ricciardo that finished third behind Bottas and with Hamilton taking his 93rd win. The Mercedes one-two means that the team secures the Constructors' Championship for the seventh season in a row.

A race win for Hamilton and a great drive for Räikkönen gave Cameron Crew the win in the 2020 Reality F1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. The team to have was Hamilton, Räikkönen, McLaren and Alfa Romeo.

Portuguese Grand Prix 2020 results

F1 returned to Portugal for the first time in 24 years and the race did not disappoint. With conditions colder than during practice and qualifying and on a slightly damp track Hamilton and Bottas struggled in the opening lap and were passed by Carlos Sainz on softer tyres. Bottas had passed Hamilton ont he first lap and then, having warmed his tyres, managed to pass Sainz for the lead. Hamilton got past Sainz soon after and then stayed within 2s of Bottas for a few laps. As the pit stops approached Hamilton suddenly closed on Bottas and passed him for the lead. After that he delivered a master class and finished the race more than 20s ahead of Bottas. With this win Hamilton surpasses Michael Schumacher's record of 91 race victories and sets a new record, one that is likely to be extended.

A race win for Hamilton and a strong drive for Gasly gave rosbif the win in the 2020 Reality F1 Portuguese Grand Prix. The team to have was Hamilton, Gasly, and two AlphaTauris.

Eifel Grand Prix 2020 results

The Eifel Grand Prix started badly as the first day of running was cancelled due to poor weather but it gave us a thrilling race. Bottas started on pole and was passed by Hamilton immediately but then re-passed the British driver. Hamilton then harried him and passed Bottas again. Unfortunately Bottas then suffered a power unit failure that ended his race. Verstappen finished second and Ricciardo came third and secured Renault's first podium since their return to F1. However, it was Hulkenberg who captured the headlines. Replacing a sick Stroll, Hulkenberg rushed to the circuit in time for qualifying but started last. He then showed his skill as a driver as he fought his way through the field to finish eighth.The win for Hamilton means he has now equalled Michael Schumacher's record of 91 race wins.

A race win for Hamilton and an amazing drive for Hulkenberg gave Gabby'B the win in the 2020 Reality F1 Eifel Grand Prix. The team to have was Hamilton, Stroll/Hulkenberg, and two Racing Points.
