Fantastic Formula 1 Returns to Portugal!

The opening lap was not Lewis Hamilton’s best but his performance thereafter most certainly was. The reigning world champion snatched back the lead and secure a record-breaking 92nd F1 victory – the same tally as Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna combined.

Out of nowhere, Lewis Hamilton delivered his best lap of the weekend to topple Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas and take a sensational pole position for the returning Portuguese Grand Prix…

The reigning world champion was second-best to Bottas through all three practice sessions and the first two segments of qualifying, and was slower after the first runs in Q3 at Portimao.

The return of Formula 1 to Portugal generated close to €13,000,000 just in the weekend that the Grand Prix took place at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, in Portimão, despite the Covid pandemic reducing the number of ticket sales.
