#20 and #19

[Last Race: 20th (-)] — Another retirement for Marcus Ericsson in Mexico keeps him at a grand total of 0 points this season. When the 2017 Formula One season ends, he may very well end up tied with Brett Favre and Peyton Manning as far as points earned go this season.
[Last Race: 19th (-)] — Pascal Wehrlein finished ahead of his Sauber teammate Marcus Ericsson for the fifth time in the last six races, but he did so without scoring a point. He hasn’t scored points in any of the last 10 races now as the season winds down.
