Saudi Arabia Grand Prix Tips & Predictions

The race to become the F1 world championship looks like going down to the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi on December 12.

Before we get to Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia will host this weekend’s race and although we could see a world champion crowned this weekend, it is highly unlikely. Max Verstappen will be crowned world champion for the first time in his career if he wins the Grand Prix and Lewis Hamilton fails to finish in the top six.

The way Hamilton is driving at the moment, I cannot see him dropping down to seventh. The British driver is like a man possessed and he is not ready to give up his title. I have mentioned in the past that I am not a massive Hamilton fan, but I have a lot of respect for him as a driver. His willingness never to give up has been there for all to see this season, and I am positive he has won more fans over this year.

Saying that I think most fans want Max Verstappen to win the title this year just to freshen things up a little bit. I am backing the Dutch driver to grab victory number 10 this weekend and head to Abu Dhabi in pole position.

If you break it down, Hamilton’s Mercedes is probably the better car, but Max has come this far, and he will be determined not to see all his hard work go down the drain so late into the season. All eyes will be on Hamilton and Verstappen to see who has control going into the last race, but the battle for the third spot is also interesting.

Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas is in third place with 203 points, while Verstappen’s partner in crime Sergio Perez is 13 points behind him. I am backing Bottas to take the final spot on the podium, while I expect Lando Norris to add to his total of 153 by finishing inside the points.
