Formula 1, the world's most followed motorsports organization, begins with a delay of about 4 months after the Australian Grand Prix, which is scheduled to be held between 12-15 March 2020, is canceled due to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.
The first leg of the race calendar, which was reorganized due to the epidemic, was the Austrian GP, which will be run between 3-5 July 2020. Mercedes-AMG Petronas has also completed its preparations for the race to be run at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.
The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 Team, which was prepared in the Team Patronage of Toto Wolff once again for the 2020 season, entrusts the steering wheel of its vehicles to World Champion Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, 3 times in a row.
The 2020 season also reminds us of an important anniversary in Mercedes' Formula 1 adventure. The Mercedes Team, which took a break from fighting in Formula 1 in 1955, returned to the races with the 2010 Bahrain Grand Prix. In the last 10 years between 2010 and 2020, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 Team won 93 of the 198 start-ups, got on the podium in 194, achieved 103 pole positions, and achieved great success by seeing the podium in the first two places in 48 races.
