Abu Dhabi F1 GP, F1 news 2019, Martin Brundle column, Lewis Hamilton, F1 DRS fail

Another Formula 1 season sails past at a scary pace, our traditional post-season Sky F1 team photo under the floodlights on the Abu Dhabi start straight seems to come around every six months.

Being generous, that was a slow-burn race which gathered excitement towards the end, as is often the case on the Yas Island layout.

In theory, a slow T7 hairpin leading onto a long straight, which is followed by a clumsy but slow chicane onto another effectively long straight, should generate some organic overtaking. Both those straights also have DRS drag reduction zones for the rear wing, although on this occasion that system failed due to a server crashing for the first 18 laps of the race.

Penrite Racing has confirmed young gun Brodie Kostecki will join the team’s reshuffled line-up for the 2020 enduros.

2017 Bathurst winner Luke Youlden’s recent retirement left a vacancy in the team, which has since been filled by Will Brown, who moved from Anton De Pasquale’s entry to drive alongside David Reynolds.

Three-time Super2 race winner Kostecki – who undertook a full wildcard enduro campaign with cousin Jake in 2019 – will race alongside De Pasquale.

Valtteri Bottas topped the timesheets on the first day of the Abu Dhabi test on Tuesday as several of F1’s leading names returned to the track, while Esteban Ocon officially started his Renault career.

Mercedes were quickest throughout the Abu Dhabi GP and their domination extended into the post-season as Bottas finished eight-tenths ahead of his closest rival, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, on a day which was largely focused around testing next season’s tyres.

Bottas set the pace on this year’s soft tyre, while Vettel posted his fastest time on a 2020 prototype as both drivers completed well over 100 laps on their last days of track action of the year.
