Entries[]

The teams and drivers fielding the 2020 F1.5 grid were anounced after the Spanish Grand Prix. The initial roster proposal sparked controversy as it only featured five teams (Alfa Romeo, Haas, AlphaTauri, Renault and Williams) [1] and was later edited to include Ferrari, McLaren and Racing Point. The final roster proposal is also in compliance with the classical F1.5 criteria

  4. Tied with Pérez, but winning on countback
