3 stars from me.

Good:

- Ferrari take it to Mercedes for most of the season even though they faded towards the end
- Hamiltons driving this year was sublime
- Sauber improved
- Leclerc drove well
- Force India saved
- French GP returned
- Raikonnen got a win (probably his last)
- Some of Verstappen's driving

Bad:

- Vettels driving was inconsistent
- Ricciardo suffered chronic car trouble pretty much the entire season (Monaco onward)
- Gap between the have's & have not's was unchanged
- Announcement that engine regs won't change in 2021 (although admittedly, we're so far down the rabbit hole with these disaster of PU's that we might as well keep going until all 4 suppliers are equal)
- 2 tier championship continues unabated
- Only 1 podium for a driver outside the top 3 teams (Perez in Baku)
- Some of Verstappens driving
- All of Verstappens attitude


Good summary, although I'd probably remove the French GP mention as I cannot stand Paul Ricard. And I think everyone who has referred to it as a 'gap' between the front three teams and the rest is being generous - it's an absolute chasm!

I didn't mind the French GP because cars could actually overtake one another.

What does the number in brackets mean? DRS assisted overtakes maybe?

EDIT: Maybe it's the number of overtakes in 2017 actually. That would make sense with the 600 more overtakes than in 2017 comment at the bottom

The brackets indicate DRS assisted overtakes!

That's interesting as it's often been said that if Monaco was a new track then it would be turned down because of the lack of overtaking yet the likes of Australia, Spa, Canada, Hungary and Singapore are just as bad.

I notice that some of the traditional tracks like Australia, Spain, Monaco, Hungary, & Canada, don't measure up at all to new facilities like Bahrain, China, & Azerbaijan. I keep hearing about the new "soulless" tracks.

Singapore is the newest track that is really a stinker in terms of passing, although Sochi is not all that great.

Sad to see that Silverstone, which holds up fairly well in the passing department is on the way out. Hope that it's replacement provides plenty of overtaking.

The brackets indicate DRS assisted overtakes!


Since the DRS zones are located on a given tracks best places to pass, one has to wonder how many of the DRS assisted passes would have happened even without the DRS assist.

Turn 1 at Interlagos was a great place to overtake even before the front straight was a DRS zone.
