How COVID-19 played a part in Mercedes' domination
By:

Mercedes may have topped the pre-season testing times, but engine unreliability proved to be a significant problem. The coronavirus pandemic therefore presented the team with a chance to address the issue and allowed its dominance to continue.

Mercedes' march to its seventh title double has looked as serene as ever in 2020. Ahead of the final three races of the season, it has scored 12 wins and 13 poles - only losing its 100% record in qualifying at the last race in Turkey.

But, had the campaign started as expected in Australia, Formula 1's dominant squad might well have run into a "painful" problem.
