The 3 Grands Prix that generated the most online exchanges this year are the controversial final in Abu Dhabi (60.5 K mentions), the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, for its first edition (30.6 K mentions) , and the Hungarian Grand Prix (26.4 K mentions), the only race won by a Frenchman (Esteban Ocon) this season!

Who is the champion who stands out among Internet users? Despite his defeat in the F1 World Championship, Lewis Hamilton is the most discussed driver of the paddock in France (403.9K mentions), with a peak following his ennoblement by Prince Charles on December 15.
