Max Verstappen seems to be in sizzling pursuit of his second consecutive world title: No different Formula 1 driver has gained for greater than two months, and Verstappen flies into Singapore with 5 consecutive wins and a beneficiant lead on this planet drivers’ championship.

Englishman Damon Hill (62) follows the World Cup races as a Formula 1 pundit for British Sky. On the F1 Nation podcast, he says of 31-time GP winner Verstappen: “He doesn’t take any pointless dangers. Because Max doesn’t need it at all. He’s in management, is not he? He is in absolute prime type and drives extremely freely and brilliantly.”

“I bear in mind seeing him at Zandvoort completely positioning his automobile for a quick right-hand nook at the again of the monitor. There wasn’t even a tire within the sand, it’s unimaginable precision.”

Rivals are far behind, Mercedes-Benz is but to win the season after 16 races. Hill, a 22-time GP winner, continued: “I’m positive – there will likely be one loopy race or one other after which Mercedes will in all probability hit. Some races, in fact, will likely be held within the rain, akin to Suzuka, after which something is feasible. And if Red Bull Racing stops improvement, Ferrari and Mercedes may have a breather earlier than Abu Dhabi.
