2020 was a season where almost anything seemed like it could happen in Formula 1, but asking for a thrilling Abu Dhabi Grand Prix proved to be a little too much.
The ingredients were all there for a classic. Max Verstappen finally on pole position, Mercedes vulnerable but surely a threat, McLaren starting strongly but Racing Point with a very quick car and F1’s newest race winner Sergio Perez set for a charging drive from the back of the grid.
But it didn’t take long for one moment to pretty much erase all of the intrigue.
