UAERed Bull Max Verstappen racer easily won the Yas Marina racetrack, Abu Dhabi on the evening of December 13.

Verstappen completed 55 laps of Yas Marina with a time of 1 hour 36 minutes 28,645 seconds. This is only his second victory of the season. A total of 214 points won is the Dutch driver’s worst performance in the last three years. The first place in the lower stage only helped Verstappen alleviate the disappointment of a fading 2020 season. The Dutch prodigy flourished at the beginning of the season, but then lagged behind due to the lack of stability for most of the rest of the way to Mercedes’ total superiority.

The end of the season also marked two unhappy memories with two veteran riders. Sergio Perez gave up in the 9th round in the last time playing for Racing Point, and caused the team to lose third place in the end to rival McLaren right at the end of the season. Sebastian Vettel also left Ferrari empty handed after a weak race of the Italian team. 2020 is probably the worst season for Ferrari in the past 40 years.

Overall, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix continues to be a boring race. Verstappen suddenly started in the first place and maintained his position after the first round. The status of virtual and safe cars being deployed after Perez’s incident at the beginning of the race made most teams focus on pursuing a 1-pit strategy, taking advantage of the race being slow to change to a new tire.

With the narrow road conditions at Yas Marina, the number of overtaking phases decreases. TV lenses largely focused on the mid-group battle with the rivalry of McLaren, Racing Point, Renault, Alpha Tauri, instead of tracking the lead cars of Red Bull and Mercedes.

The fact that the race becomes a battle to keep tires in the first group while Mercedes is not fighting hard makes the end of the 2020 season bland. Mercedes chose to put Lewis Hamilton into the pit right after Valtteri Bottas instead of betting on the strategy of prolonging the use of the starting tire. Hamilton was also not physically and mentally good, after recovering from COVID-19 and successfully defending the World Championship.

At the top, Bottas’s speed does not keep pace with Verstappen, causing him to gradually fall further towards the end. Hamilton is stable at a distance of approximately three seconds from a teammate. Red Bull Alexandre Albon’s remaining driver was left behind and could not be close to the British driver most of the time, so there was no pressure on the Mercedes duo. However, the Thai racer RB13 also left the middle group tens of seconds behind the wheel.

Coming to the finish line right after Albon was the McLaren duo. Although Racing Point has the fastest car in the middle group, the stability of Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz Jnr helped McLaren to suddenly win the third place in the final position in the context that Perez soon gave up, Lance Stroll only earned. 1 point after being overtaken by Esteban Ocon (Renault) at the end of the race. About $ 10 million more from the results of this stage made McLaren’s financial situation more positive in the context of news that the traditional British race team was acquired by an American investor.
