Lewis Hamilton fears he will be taken to the Max by Verstappen at this weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix: ‘We could see something similar to this past weekend given the straight-line speed of Red Bull’

LewisĀ Hamilton fears the threat of Max Verstappen at this weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix. The Red Bull man won at France’s Circuit Paul Ricard last weekend, a brilliant victory that his team called right strategically to take him to his third victory of the season. It moved Verstappen 12 points clear of Hamilton after seven rounds of 23. Ahead of the next race at the Red Bull track in Austria, Hamilton said: ‘It’s a power-hungry circuit, with long straights, so we could see something similar to this past weekend given the straight-line speed of the Red Bull. Red Bull moved 37 points clear of Mercedes in the constructors’ standings after Sergio Perez passed Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas for third place in the closing laps in the south of France.
