Four ways Max Verstappen can beat Lewis Hamilton to F1 title at Saudi Arabian Grand Prix

2 mins read

Verstappen was the winner in Monte Carlo while Hamilton ended up seventh after struggling in qualifying, while poor strategy call from Mercedes left the driver frustrated.

At the British Grand Prix, in which Verstappen suffered a 51G crash as Hamilton sought to overtake him into Copse corner, the Silver Arrows were the beneficiaries of an 18-point swing.

Verstappen had headed to Silverstone 32 points in front at the top of the standings but had his advantage cut to just eight by Hamilton’s home race victory.

Heading into the Saudi Arabia race, Verstappen said: “Fighting against Lewis in general has been good for the sport. It’s a young guy against the established world champion, multiple world champion, and I think it’s just very exciting.

“And for me at the end of the day it doesn’t matter if you’re fighting against someone who’s my age or a world champion, you know both of them are great drivers.

“Some might have had a bit more luck in general to be in a good car for a longer time but that doesn’t take away that they’re a great driver and yes, we always try to beat each other, of course. But I think so far it’s been a really cool season.”
