Max Verstappen is now on ten victories this season in F1, where a break is currently being taken. With 125 points ahead of Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez, a new world title seems inevitable. Lewis Hamilton, meanwhile, is disappointed.
The Brit drove his Mercedes to fourth place at Spa-Francorchamps and is within 1 point of third place in the World Cup standings, that of Fernando Alonso. But if Hamilton were in a Red Bull…
“When I was in Sergio’s car, Verstappen definitely didn’t have it as easy as it is now,” Hamilton laughed in an interview. “But it is what it is. I can’t even compete with Red Bull at the moment. What can I do? Their car is eight tenths to a second faster per lap. There is nothing to argue against that. It is what it is. Unfortunately I can’t change it. If Red Bull breaks down, something is possible. Otherwise not.”
