    PADDOCK PASS: We round up the drivers’ reactions as the 2020 season draws to a close

Emotions were running high in the paddock in the aftermath of the race, meanwhile, as McLaren claimed P3 in the constructors’, while a number of drivers said their farewells to their current teams – the likes of Carlos Sainz, Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo – while other drivers called time on their F1 careers completely.
