Lewis Hamilton wins Qatar GP to narrow Verstappen gap to just EIGHT points with two races left in thrilling title fight

LEWIS HAMILTON continued his superb form by clinching victory at the inaugural Qatari Grand Prix despite a determined Max Verstappen pursuit. Hamilton defended his lead with an assured drive, never allowing rival Verstappen to get within five seconds of him, despite conceding the fastest lap. And despite having a solid race, a near-perfect drive from Hamilton to earn his 102nd Grand Prix win meant the Dutchman just couldn’t get near him. Speaking after the race, Hamilton said: “It was a pretty straightforward race in the end and it was a great job by the team because we really needed the points today. “To get back-to-back wins is a great feeling and sets us up well for the final two races.”. Speaking after the race, the Dutchman said: “Luckily we had a really good start. At the end of the day to get the fastest lap was very nice.”.
