The 2019 F1 calendar marked the 70th running of the world championship. Ferrari were pre-season favourites, but Mercedes were first out of the blocks, winning the opening eight races, the first five with one-two finishes. That set up Lewis Hamilton for an historic sixth drivers’ crown, though the Silver Arrows far from had things all their own way. Ferrari’s rising star Charles Leclerc eclipsed veteran team mate Sebastian Vettel to score his first two (back-to-back) Grand Prix victories, while Max Verstappen and Red Bull put Honda back atop an F1 podium on three occasions. But a season notable for epic races rather than a tense title fight ultimately belonged to Mercedes, and their record sixth consecutive championship double.
