With the Grand Prix of Austria in Spielberg, the new season of the Formula 1 had started on July 5th, 2020: After a thrilling race, Valtteri Bottas won in front of Charles Leclerc and Lando Norris on McLaren-Renault. But after three victories in a row - at the Grand Prix of Styria, in Hungary as well as in the first of two Grand Prix in Silverstone - Lewis Hamilton is already leading the driver standings. With his win at the anniversary race, Max Verstappen has shown the potential of the Red Bull Racing Honda. Still eight further racing weekends have to be acomblished until the champion of the corona-year 2020 will be chosen. Until then, ck-modelcars.de offers the miniatures in scale 1:43 and 1:18, which competed in the races of the previous years and to which the editors attach corresponding images to this article. Lewis Hamilton has always played a major role.
