Verstappen’s inches closer to F1 crown

Six more races remain for dominant Dutch driver Max Verstappen to secure this year’s F1 title, and it appears that no one can halt his mean machine. Yet the Italian manufacturer has seemingly gifted Verstappen the F1 World Drivers Championship crown this season through several errors. Red Bull’s growing speed advantage has opened up a staggering lead of 116 points over Leclerc for Verstappen. Verstappen could secure the title in his next race when the F1 circus returns to Singapore (October 2) for the first time since 2019. There are four other drivers who can mathematically grapple this season’s crown from Verstappen. Should Verstappen triumph in Singapore, with both Leclerc and Perez finishing outside the points, then the Dutchman will successfully maintain his world champion mantle. Verstappen just needs to outscore Leclerc by 22 points, Perez by 13 and George Russell of Mercedes by four points to be crowned world champion at Marina Bay. It is highly probable that Verstappen will start this season’s final race in Abu Dhabi (November 20) as world champion.
