If Verstappen doesn't win, it'll mean RB have won less races than they did last season. They need to pick up 39pts tonight to beat their score from last season. 2 poles in each season.
That Honda engine seems like its got serious power and drive-ability now. Honda have come on leaps and bounds this year.

Well, that was that. Not really a memorable season for mine. We got 22 rounds of it next year, before the rules change for 2021.

Random quick question re: scoring

If there are less than 10 finishers, the points still go 25-18-15 etc right?

I have some weird notion that if there's, say 8 finishers, it would go 15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1. 6 finishers would go 10-8-6-4-2-1

Correct.

The only time the points totals are adjusted is if a race has to be abandoned before 75% of the planned distance has been completed, then all points are halved, so it becomes 12.5, 9, 7.5, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0.5.

To be fair they had a race winner in the other seat last year.
There was no stability in the second seat in 2019.

Thank you for that. What a great read. Told by those on the inside, not the press friendly auto bots.
Yeah, the stuff about carrying around a 3rd chassis that was fake just to bluff to the other teams because they couldn't afford to repair the 2 they had was pretty insane :cool:

Season over. But one thing stands out.
The competition needs to up their game in 2020 if they want to make the season exciting for us.
With the big changes not coming until 2021, will the money be spent to make 2020 a season to remember?
