1. Bottas [2] It was a good start for the Finn, who turned pole into victory while Hamilton only managed fourth after being given a three-place grid penalty.

2. He finished the race on three wheels [1] This ‘slow burner’ race had a dramatic finish as a tyre de-lamination on Hamilton’s Mercedes almost allowed Verstappen to chase him down for the win.

3. Gasly after winning in Italy [2] The French driver had to seek confirmation after he held off Carlos Sainz to take his maiden grand prix victory for AlphaTauri.

4. Russell [3] With the playing field levelled in this console competition, the rising star of F1 took the unofficial Esports title with a campaign that included four straight wins.

5. 1037 [2] In March it was hard to imagine F1 would turn a single lap in anger but by the end of December it had completed 17 races and just 225 laps less than 2019.

6. A sore loser [1] Albon had looked set to secure his first podium in Austria before the collision, which Hamilton later described as a “really unfortunate situation”.

7. Sergio Perez An ironic anagram, given that the Mexican driver had no issues in giving his all for Racing Point despite knowing mid-season he would be dropped for 2021.

8. Verstappen [1] The Dutch driver retired from five races, including two first-lap collisions, yet he still managed to collect enough points to finish third in the championship.

9. 1980 [3] This year and 1980 were the only two years since the constructors’ championship began in 1958 that Ferrari has finished outside the top six.

10. Verstappen [2] The Dutch driver gave this response when he was asked to pull back to conserve tyres in the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix.

11. 1.86s [1] Red Bull was wired when it came to stops, setting 15 of the 17 fastest times. The fastest came in Russia with Verstappen and was repeated in Portugal with Albon.

12. 9 races [2] Austria, Hungary, Great Britain, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi were all originally scheduled and took place on later dates.

13. 189 [1] Victory was a long time coming for Perez, who had waited longer than any other winning driver by the time he took the chequered flag in Sakhir.

14. Pictures of Williams’ title-winning cars [2] Russell paid tribute to the legacy of the team’s founders after the Williams family sold up to Dorilton Capital during the season.

15. 4 [2] Mercedes pair Bottas and Hamilton started up front in 15 of the 17 races, but Stroll took pole in the rain in Turkey and Verstappen snatched it in Abu Dhabi.

16. 17 [3] Gasly fought back from the disappointment of a demotion in 2019 to rub Red Bull’s nose in it less than a season of races.

17. Bottas [1] The Finn did a bit of grass cutting during qualifying for the Austrian Grand Prix but recovered to be told he had already taken pole.

18. 36% [2] The Mercedes driver’s record victory haul has taken fewer races than the man he beat, Michael Schumacher.

19. The brake ducts [1] The ‘Pink Mercedes’ was constantly criticised for copying the title-winning machine from 2019, but was only penalised for copying this part.

20. Norris [2] The British driver is the youngest on the grid, and was still wearing nappies when the oldest driver, Kimi Raikkonen, made his F1 debut.
