Driver Changes ahead of Sakhir Grand Prix
2nd December 2020
Lots of drivers changing teams for the next race, find out what happens with Fantasy GP...
Following the horrific fiery crash in the Bahrain GP, Romain Grosjean is being replaced at Haas for the Sakhir Grand Prix and his replacement is Pietro Fittipaldi. If you had Grosjean in your team you now have Fittipaldi.
Huge news broke this week when it was announced that the 2020 Champion, Lewis Hamilton has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the Sakhir Grand Prix. It has now been confirmed that George Russell will take his place in the Mercedes for the weekend. If you had Hamilton in your team, you now have George Russell.
With George Russell replacing Lewis Hamilton for the weekend, the vacant seat at Williams will be taken by Jack Aitken. If you had George Russell in a Williams then you’ll now have Jack Aitken instead.
None of these changes affect the monetary values or your bank balance. The drivers you have in your teams are linked to the slots in each team, which is why if you had Hamilton you now have Russell and if you had Russell you now have Aitken. Your Team Changes have not been affected, but in the interest of fairness and with all the sweeping changes, all players have been granted an additional free change.
All this and a brand new circuit for F1 this weekend should make it a thrilling race.
Here’s hoping both Romain Grosjean and Lewis Hamilton make speedy recoveries and are back in for Abu Dhabi to see the season out.
Good luck everyone!
