Hamilton returned to play in Abu Dhabi
With a poor handling in the Sakhir (Bahrain) race last weekend in the starting lap, Verstappen knocked himself out of the race and one day the technical team of Mercedes was working in a distraction, Bottas only finished eighth. The gap between Bottas (Mercedes) who ranked second and Verstappen (Red Bull) was widened by 16 points.
Theoretically, Verstappen still has a chance to compete for second place in the end if he does well in the last race in Abu Dhabi, and Bottas still performs as poor as the last race.
At Sakhir last weekend, when Hamilton was unable to play due to a Covid positive and had to undergo mandatory isolation, young Mercedes driver Russell was given the opportunity to compete in the champions’ car. The young driver who is currently playing for Williams did everything very well and could be said to be perfect on his first official appearance for Mercedes, before the technical team with blunders took the chance. First win in an F1 race by Russell.

With the last victory, Perez secured 4th place on the rankings and probably will belong to him after the Yas Marina Circuit race ends. Perez’s current distance and the 5th ranked racer Ricciardo is 13 points.
Theoretically, Ricciardo still has a chance to turn things around, but the Australian driver doesn’t have much chance of getting a high score in Abu Dhabi. It is a bit of regret for Perez to this day he has yet to receive an offer for a new seat in the 2021 season.

Perez and his future uncertain in the 2021 season
In terms of the team, Ferrari has not won a single victory here. This return, which is seen as their “home field” but with current strength, there is a difficult chance for Ferrari to be successful in the same way that Perez had in the last Bahain race. last week.
