This race wasn't the best race unfortunately. We can conclude Mercedes will win the title again in 2020. The drivers are good but the team is so good that the drivers don't matter that much anymore. Put Russel in the car and he will challenge Hamilton for that Mercedes championship. It is a great dr...
