F1 2020: Nine reasons why the new season promises so much

Published

“Unless somebody pulls a rabbit out of a hat, then I think we’re set for a really exciting year between, Mercedes, Ferrari, ourselves. And it could be a real classic season.”

The mouth-watering prediction made by Red Bull’s Christian Horner in the closing stages of last year after the 2019 campaign finished with a competitive and unpredictable run of races.

Only two seats may have changed hands on the grid over the winter, but stability – both in terms of team personnel and F1’s rules themselves – offers the prospect of an even closer battle for honours this year.

Supercars 2020, Adelaide 500, five things we learned, Scott McLaughlin, Chaz Mostert

Published

The season-opening Superloop Adelaide 500 provided several storylines, yet just like it did in 2019, Scott McLaughlin left South Australia with the wreath and golden trophy.

A second straight overall victory helped McLaughlin kick off his title defence in supreme style, although it came about almost fortuitously when runaway leader Shane van Gisbergen struck trouble.

Still, the Red Bull Holden Racing Team showed its class on both race days, with Jamie Whincup doing the business on the Saturday in a canter.

It was the one that got away for Shane van Gisbergen, who was by far and away the fastest on Sunday at the Superloop Adelaide 500.

Van Gisbergen claimed pole position for Race 2, and led 51 of 78 laps in the 250km marathon. Late into the race, he held a nine-second lead over countryman and rival Scott McLaughlin.

Early on, things began to unravel despite van Gisbergen’s standout pace. Having lost the lead into Turn 1 to McLaughlin, van Gisbergen suffered a suspected broken front anti-rollbar in the opening laps.

It was a “dream start” to life for Chaz Mostert at new team Walkinshaw Andretti United after the Holden recruit recorded a podium finish at the Superloop Adelaide 500.

Mostert began the week with positive headlines when he broke the practice/qualifying lap record around the Adelaide streets, before racing to seventh in Race 1 on Saturday.

On Sunday, the 2014 Bathurst winner drove a measured race to finish second behind winner Scott McLaughlin, sealing silverware on his Holden debut.
