Across 21 races on five continents, the 2019 world championship again ended up in the hands of Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes, despite Ferrari and Red Bull proving more than competitive at times.

Valtteri Bottas enjoyed his best season yet, registering four wins, five poles and 15 podiums. However, 11 race wins for Hamilton ensured a big margin between the Mercedes teammates, with the pressure on the Finn to close the gap in 2020.

Max Verstappen dragged Red Bull Racing all season and impressed to third, having claimed wins in Austria, Germany and Brazil. Six additional podiums helped him to his highest ever points total – but Ferrari contemporary Charles Leclerc wasn’t too far behind.

Mercedes tried out a new steering innovation at pre-season testing in Barcelona on Thursday, insisting the device fell within Formula One’s stringent technical rules.

On-board camera footage showed world champion Lewis Hamilton moving the steering wheel towards him as he enters a straight, changing the angle of the front wheels, before pushing the steering wheel away from him at the next corner.

F1 cars traditionally are set up with the front wheels slightly angled to help cornering.

Mercedes’ technical director James Allison said the so-called dual axis steering system was above board.
