Lewis Hamilton is now clear favourite to win a record eighth F1 title, age is just a number for 40-year-old Fernando Alonso, while McLaren left David Beckham gobsmacked despite a poor 900th race… SIX things we learned from the Qatar Grand Prix

The Qatar Grand Prix may not have been as exciting as the proceeding race in Brazil where Lewis Hamilton carved his way through the field to take a stunning win, but it did keep the title fight on track for a final race decider. One of the big questions heading into the Qatar Grand Prix was: “would you rather have had Max Verstappen’s 14-point advantage or Lewis Hamilton’s car heading into the final three races?”. There is clearly a safety element to deal with here, but the retirements added much needed excitement to a race where first and second place had pretty much been decided five laps into the grand prix. It shows that the car does still have the pace to compete with Ferrari, but with just two races to go they are now 39.5 points off their old rivals. In the middle of the season, there was much celebration at Williams as with both drivers they earned the team’s first points in two years following the Hungarian Grand Prix.
