Ben Hunt: Max Verstappen’s rivals may have faltered… but he has been BRILLIANT on relentless charge to second F1 title

MAX VERSTAPPEN can wrap up the Formula One title this weekend at the Singapore Grand Prix – and there would still be five races to go, plus a sprint race in Brazil. Sure, last year’s title was decided under a cloud in Abu Dhabi – the outcome we know was botched by the former race director, Michael Masi. But there is no disputing Verstappen’s second title, for there have been moments of brilliance and skill, while Red Bull have been faultless. Verstappen can win the title if he outscores Charles Leclerc by 22 points, Sergio Perez by 13 and George Russell by six in Singapore. If he were to do it there, it would be the earliest coronation in 20 years, and the second earliest in F1 history. Verstappen ‘only’ has four and his Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez has just one. Thirdly, and fourthly, Red Bull and Verstappen have both been excellent.
