Last time out at the Turkish Grand Prix
In 2020, Turkey returned to the Formula 1 calendar for the first time since 2011 as the sport looked to bolster its coronavirus-hit calendar. The race weekend proved to be one of the best of the season, with drivers struggling for grip on the freshly resurfaced track.
Rain before qualifying led to a jumbled order on the starting grid, with Lance Stroll securing his maiden pole position. In the race, Lewis Hamilton took an impressive victory from sixth on the grid. The win ensured Hamilton would take the 2020 Drivers’ Championship, equalling Michael Schumacher’s record of seven titles.
