The 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 Heineken Grande Prémio De Portugal 2020) was the twelfth race of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship, staged at the Algarve International Circuit in Portimao, Algarve, Portugal, on 25 October 2020. It was the first Portuguese Grand Prix to be held since 1996, and the 17th running of the event.

Lewis Hamilton took pole position ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas, who had been the fastest in all three free practice sessions, and won the race despite losing the lead to both Bottas and the McLaren of Carlos Sainz, Jr. at the start, breaking Michael Schumacher's record for all-time number of wins for a driver, while Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen finished third.


Background[]

Formula One previously visited the Autódromo do Estoril as the venue for the Portuguese Grand Prix from 1984 to 1996. Following the delayed start to the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with a number of race cancellations from the original calendar, the Algarve Circuit at Portimao was announced on July 24 as part of the revised 2020 calendar, alongside Nürburgring and Imola.

On October 22nd, both Haas drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen are announced to be leaving the team at the end of the season.
