SIR LEWIS ON FIRE AT QATAR

21/11/21

Sir Lewis Hamilton was on fire again at the Qatar Grand Prix. 2021 has been one of the most competitive seasons of turbo hybrid era. Lewis and Max have been exchanging the championship leadership throughout the season. 

Max Verstappen has been dominating the season between Monaco GP and Mexico GP, winning 8 of those 14 races. However in the last two races Lewis Hamilton changed the momentum towards his side. Especially with the new 'rocket' engine of Mercedes combined with Lewis Hamilton's incredible racecraft; Hamilton looked unbeatable in last two races.

Especially at the Interlagos, Sao Paolo GP; Hamilton's climb from 20th place to 5th in sprint race and from 10th place to victory in the race was historic. 

With just two races remaining Max Verstappen is looking for his first title with 8 points advantage on 7-times World Champion Hamilton.

If Max Verstappen wins one of these remaining races he has a great chance of winning a title but speed of Mercedes and racecraft of Lewis Hamilton looks unstopable and looks more superior for championship.

Personally I think that Lewis Hamilton has %65 chance of winning the title, Max Verstappen has %35 chance even he has 8 points advantage.

Here are the results of Qatar GP:

1- Lewis Hamilton   25 points

2- Max Verstappen  19 points (fastest lap)

3- Fernando Alonso  15 points

4- Sergio Perez   12 points

5- Esteban Ocon   10 points

6- Lance Stroll   8 points

7- Carlos Sainz  6 points

8- Charles Leclerc  4 points

9- Lando Norris  2 points

10- Sebastian Vettel  1 point

14- Kimi Raikkonen

15- Antonio Giovinazzi

16- Mick Schumacher
