“Use your HEAD…..to stop the SPREAD!”
Formula One World Driving Championship:
Last Race: November 29th: Bahrain: Switzerland’s Romain Grosjean miraculously survived a massive firey crash into a barrier just after the start of the night race. He was able to escape the inferno with minour burns and a broken rib. The safety equipment and staff doing its job. The race re-started an hour later where Montreal’s Lance Stroll climbed wheels with Daniel Kvyatt and flipped up upside down. He wasn’t hurt but Stroll’s race was done. Oh yes, Lewis Hamilton won the drama-free race after all that. 11th win of the season, 95th of his career. He’s already won his 7th championship. Max Verstappen and Alex Albon 2nd and 3rd in Bahrain. Toronto’s Nick Latifi 14th.
Driver Points with 2 GP’s to go: Back of Hamilton’s 7th championship already clinched: Verstappen is just 12 points back of Bottas ( 8th in Bahrain ) for 2nd in driver points. Stroll with the DNF is now 12 back of Gasly for 10th. It used to be 4. Mercedes has already won their 7th straight Constructors championship
Next Races: December 6th: Shakir/Bahrain. December 13th: Abu Dhabi. Note: The 2020 Canadian Grand Prix Montreal was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Notes: The Halo broke the barrier, not Romain’s head. He also got out fast enough. He was in the flames for 18-20 seconds. Head of Medical Dr. Ian Roberts walked into the flames to help RG out. Alan Vander Merwe – safety car driver assisted.
