Saudi Arabian Grand Prix: ‘Fun to drive, but the danger is there’

The Red Bull driver’s steering-wheel dashboard was telling him he was 0.3 seconds up on his previous best lap. Verstappen knew Hamilton had just beaten his time by 0.14secs but the Dutchman had more than enough pace to snatch it back. Verstappen is leading Hamilton by eight points with two races to go this season. And when he did get a lap in, it was nearly 0.4secs slower than Verstappen’s first attempt. But Hamilton being Hamilton, he pulled out a big one when it mattered. The Red Bull is fast, but Verstappen has two Mercedes in front of him, at least at the start. Mercedes will be hoping that Bottas does a better job of holding Verstappen back than he has done a few times in recent races. It’s hard not to imagine the race becoming a straight fight between him and Hamilton again.
