Hamilton takes victory in Portugal
Date published: 3rd May 2021
Lewis Hamilton took victory in Portugal, but it was far from a foregone conclusion, so far 2021 has given us 3 great races out of 3, long may it continue!
In Fantasy GP terms, the top 3 drivers scored the most points, Bottas topping the table thanks to his unexpected Pole Position. Alonso and Ricciardo scored well thanks to their bonus points for moving up from their grid positions and Mick Schumacher scored an impressive 11 points, easily making him the best value driver for Portugal (in terms of cost per point).
You can now (finally) see how you got on and check your scores, ranks and leagues. Fantasy GP was hit with technical issues over the weekend. We’re now reasonably confident to have found the issue and dealt with it. Read more here.
In case you missed it, Bottas took the fastest lap after Verstappen’s late attempt was deleted following violation of track limits. The podium was Hamilton, Verstappen, Bottas and we have one single Safety Car period following Kimi Raikkonen’s incident with his team mate. For the bonus question we asked about the highest placed McLaren, the correct option being 4th-6th thanks to Norris’ P5.
The game will open for team changes and predictions for the Spanish Grand Prix (race is on this weekend) on Wednesday at 10am BST.
