2019 F1 Championship Report


Hamilton overtakes Fangio with number Sixth

Some changes were introduced for the 2019 season, such as the enlargement of the front and rear wing to promote overtaking. The several winglets of the front wing were banned, while the DRS gap of the rear wing was enhanced to help drivers overtake the car in front.

Sporting changes had some little tweaks, with a point awarded for the Fastest Lap of each race. To earn the Fastest Lap point, the driver needed to finish the race inside the top 10.

The year was always going to be exciting, with rookies such as the F2 champion from 2018, George Russell (Williams) and the two drivers who were part of the top three, Lando Norris (McLaren) and Alexander Albon (Toro Rosso, then Red Bull for the second half) entering the sport. Also, Antonio Giovinazzi had earned a full drive with Alfa Romeo alongside Kimi Raikkonen, who took Charles Leclerc’s seat at Alfa Romeo after the Monegasque went to Ferrari in the Finnish driver’s place.

Also, the return of Grand Prix-winner Robert Kubica after his near-fatal rallying accident in 2011 was a major talking point. The Polish driver returned to the sport with Williams as Russian Daniil Kvyat also returned with Toro Rosso after a year of absence. Carlos Sainz (now at McLaren), Pierre Gasly (now at Red Bull), Daniel Ricciardo (now at Renault) were after new challenges after switching teams too for the 2019 season.

Hamilton and Mercedes were favored to win the championship after the Englishman had dominated in 2017 and 2018. The British driver was aiming for his sixth Formula 1 World Championship, but after winter testing, a heavy challenge was expected from Ferrari.

Ralf: Beating Michael's records not easy for Hamilton

F1, Tests, Barcelona, Mercedes W10 driven by Lewis Hamilton

Despite struggles in winter testing when trying to unlock the potential of the W10, Mercedes hit the ground running in the first race, at Australia. Lewis Hamilton qualified on Pole Position and Valtteri Bottas was second, six tenths clear of the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel. Max Verstappen lined up fourth in his first race with a Honda engine, while the Ferrari debut for Leclerc was not the best, with fifth and almost a second away from first.

Bottas led a Mercedes 1-2 while Verstappen gave Honda its first podium since Rubens Barrichello had finished third in the 2008 British Grand Prix with the works Honda team. Verstappen’s strategy helped him take third from Vettel, who found himself under attack from Leclerc late in the race.

The second weekend was different, as Ferrari locked up the front-row with Leclerc on Pole as the second youngest pole-sitter ever. After some controversy with team orders being called upon to prevent Leclerc from overtaking Vettel in Australia, the Monegasque qualified on Pole ahead of the German.

However, a spin from Vettel while fighting Hamilton and a cylinder misfiring on Leclerc’s engine prompted the second consecutive Mercedes 1-2 of the year and Hamilton’s first win of the year.

Although Ferrari did not get the result at Bahrain, they were competitive and had the best car of the field at that track and a championship fight was expected. However, Mercedes again dominated the next rounds, with consecutive 1-2s at China and Azerbaijan.

At Azerbaijan, the Silver Arrows broke the record for most 1-2 finishes to start the season, previously held by Williams from the 1992 season. Leclerc seemed to be the early contender against Mercedes, but an untimely mistake in Q2 left him well behind.

After four rounds, Hamilton and Bottas had two wins apiece. At Spain, Bottas achieved his third straight Pole and there was talk around many media outlets that he could eventually upset Hamilton’s title bid.

However, Hamilton’s steamroller as too much to overcome and he won the next four races in a row. At Monaco, the entire week which preceded the race was marked by the death of legendary three-time World Champion Niki Lauda. The Mercedes team chose to honor the Austrian champion by wearing red caps and painting the halo of their cars with red, Lauda’s characteristic color.

The race was dramatic, with Hamilton leading and Verstappen second after he had overtaken Bottas in the pit lane. Verstappen had earned a 5-second penalty for putting Bottas in the wall of the pit lane, but he was attacking Hamilton, who was struggling after Mercedes had put him on the medium tyre for the final stint of the race, with rivals on the hard tyre.

After a desperate attempt to overtake from Verstappen into the Nouvelle Chicane were the Red Bull and the Mercedes touch, Hamilton was able to win the race in honor of Lauda. Vettel finished second and Bottas third, as they took advantage of Verstappen’s penalty. Gasly took the Fastest Lap and finished fifth after starting eighth.

A hot moment of the year arrived in Canada, where Ferrari showed again their straight-line speed to claim Pole Position, this time with Sebastian Vettel’s SF90. Hamilton lined up second, a couple of tenths off the German’s lap and Leclerc was third, albeit seven-tenths behind his teammate. For Renault, Ricciardo starting fourth was a brilliant sight, given the team had scored only 14 points in the first six Grands Prix.

On Sunday, Vettel protected his lead at the start and was closely followed by the Silver Arrow of Hamilton during the entire race. On lap 48, Vettel had to cut Turn 4 after a mistake heading into the corner, as he returned to the track, Hamilton was about to overtake him but the German left no space and the Englishman had to back out of the move, otherwise, he would have been put into the wall by the Ferrari.

Vettel was given a 5-second penalty for his move and Hamilton crossed the line in second but won the race to Ferrari’s and Vettel’s anger. Vettel showed his frustration in the post-race ceremony and Ferrari announced they would appeal the sanction, but eventually, it did not deliver the result expected by them.

Sixth and seventh for Renault at Montreal was a solid result for the team and what they had been waiting for the entire campaign.

After 10 straight wins for Mercedes (eight for Hamilton) going back to the last two races of 2018, it was Verstappen’s day at Austria, home of Red Bull Racing. After Leclerc had taken Pole Position and Hamilton was penalised for impeding Raikkonen in qualifying, the Dutchman started second. Even though Verstappen had a really bad start and lost several places, he managed to put himself in contention and a great display of overtaking left him close to Leclerc in the closing laps.

Verstappen got past after a great fight and even forced Leclerc out of the track (cleanly) when the Monegasque tried to hold his position and won the race. A stunning drive from the Dutchman which delivered Honda’s first F1 victory since the 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix (won by Jenson Button). Bottas was the other podium finisher, ahead of Vettel and Hamilton.

Hamilton won a record sixth British Grand Prix at Silverstone in another Mercedes 1-2. At this point, Hamilton had won seven of the first 10 races and his championship lead was a comfortable 39 points over Bottas. The following race was at Hockenheim and despite Hamilton’s Pole Position in the weekend where Mercedes was celebrating 125 years of motorsport in their home circuit, it all went wrong in the race.

Verstappen went on to win a crazy wet-dry-wet race at Hockenheim with Vettel (who recovered from last to P2) and Kvyat, who scored his second career podium and the first for Toro Rosso since Vettel’s win at Italy in 2008, on the podium.

Hamilton managed to still increase his lead at the top with ninth place, after the two Alfa Romeos were penalised for driver aids at the start. Also, Kubica scored his one and only point of the year, with P10 for the Williams.

At Hungary, the in-form Verstappen got his first career Pole Position before losing in a great battle on Sunday to Hamilton, who got a different strategy and performed a magnificent final stint to catch and pass the Dutchman.

After Hamilton had won eight of the 12 Grands Prix in the first half of the year, a fight for the championship was unlikely with Bottas 62 points behind. However, the second half of the year was stunning, with more than one team with chances to win almost in every race and a fantastic show of power from the Ferrari engine, which would raise many eyebrows in the process.

At Spa and Italy, Ferrari and mainly Leclerc showed that their engine was comfortably ahead of the field. Both wins were emotional for Leclerc, not only because they were his first two (and only wins to date), but because at Spa-Francorchamps, his childhood friend Anthoine Hubert had died on Saturday after a terrible and sad crash on the F2 Feature Race. At Italy, the emotions were different, as it was Ferrari’s first win in front of the Tifosi since 2010 (when Fernando Alonso beat Button to the win).

Ferrari kept dominating with a surprise 1-2 at Singapore, where engine power should not have given them such an advantage. A new downforce package and a good strategy from the team helped Vettel turn a 1-3 for the team (led by Leclerc) into a 1-2 and what was his only win of a tough year.

Moving on to the Russian Grand Prix, Ferrari again dominated Saturday with Leclerc being untouchable at the front. Hamilton managed to qualify second, ahead of Vettel. In the race, Vettel led ahead of Leclerc after a great start, which was arranged by the team before the race in order to put Vettel ahead of Hamilton.

However, Vettel did not let Leclerc get past and the situation helped Hamilton (who started on the medium tyre compared to the soft-starting Ferraris) maintain within striking distance. Eventually, Leclerc stopped before Vettel and was ahead after the German pitted. However, an engine failure for Vettel brought the Virtual Safety Car out and Hamilton made a free stop to keep the lead.

Hamilton won in another Mercedes 1-2 with Leclerc third. By this race, the new Red Bull driver, Albon, had finished in the top six in his four races with the Milton Keynes-based team and had scored more points than Verstappen in that span.

The weekend in Japan was a different one, with Saturday's action cancelled due to Typhoon Hagibis. On the Sunday-morning qualifying, Vettel put his Ferrari in Pole, ahead of Leclerc, Bottas and Hamilton.

Eventually, Bottas won in front of Vettel and Hamilton, securing Mercedes’ sixth straight World Constructors’ Championship, which tied Ferrari (1999-2004) for the longest streak ever. The two Renault cars were excluded from the race days after the GP because of the use of driver aids on the car (automated brake bias system).

The next race, at Mexico, was won by Hamilton from third place on the grid, ahead of Vettel and Bottas. Pole Position was initially taken by Verstappen, but he failed to slow down in Q3 after Bottas had crashed, earning a three-place grid penalty and Pole was handed to Leclerc.

In the race, Hamilton and Verstappen collided at the first corner of the first lap but both managed to continue running after both had excursions to the grass.

At this point, rumours about the legality of the Ferrari engine had started. Technical directives from the FIA regarding fuel-flow limits and new sensors to measure it had seemingly hindered Ferrari’s performance on the Power Unit side. Verstappen, always vocal, had accused the Italian team of cheating.

At Austin, Hamilton had the chance to secure his sixth championship and move ahead of Juan Manuel Fangio’s tally of five. Fifth place in qualifying was not a great omen for the championship leader with his teammate in Pole, but Hamilton had a great start and his one-stop strategy left him fighting for the lead with Bottas in the late stages of the race.

Hamilton finished second behind Bottas and secured a glorious sixth Formula 1 championship which put him one ahead of Fangio and just one behind Michael Schumacher’s tally. Also, it was the sixth straight Drivers’ title for Mercedes, an unprecedented feat.

The Englishman became the fourth driver after Fangio, Schumacher and Vettel to secure at least three straight titles in F1 history. He also joined Schumacher in winning five championships with the same team (the German legend did it with Ferrari).

The final two races of the year had some interest, as third in the championship was not sealed yet, with Verstappen and the two Ferraris in contention. A fight for sixth in the World Drivers’ Championship was also open between Sainz, Gasly and Albon.

The start of 2019 F1 Grand Prix of Brazil at Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace on November 17 in Sao Paulo

Verstappen won a crazy race at Brazil in front of first-time podium-finishers Gasly and Sainz. Gasly had given Toro Rosso its second podium of the year, while the Spaniard gave McLaren its first since the 2014 Australian Grand Prix.

At the race in Sao Paulo, the two Ferrari drivers crashed into each other and had to retire from the race while fighting for third place.

In the finale at Abu Dhabi, Hamilton dominated from Pole Position, with Verstappen and Leclerc filling the podium places. Verstappen maintained his third place in the World Drivers’ Championship, while Sainz secured a solid sixth in the standings ahead of two drivers who had driven Red Bull cars for half of the year.

Hamilton’s Sixth Symphony was fitting to celebrate the 70th season of Formula 1 racing.
