Cool Verstappen does not think about a possible crash with Hamilton

Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen wants to be distracted as little as possible in preparation for the Grand Prix of Saudi Arabia, on Sunday on the brand new street circuit in Jeddah. The Red Bull leader does not elaborate on questions about an upcoming world title or a possible collision with his British rival Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes). “I’ve always been pretty neutral,” he assures. “I’m preparing for next weekend like I’ve done all season.”

Verstappen does indicate that he and his team are very happy with the current starting position. “We are also highly motivated,” the World Cup leader argues. He says he is not interested in talking about a possible collision with Hamilton. “I don’t think about that.”

Verstappen and Hamilton are engaged in a fierce battle for the world title. The protracted battle has already led to a crash between the rivals twice. In Silverstone Hamilton rammed Verstappen hard into the crash barriers and in Monza the Limburger drove the Englishman off the track, with Verstappen’s car even ending up on top of Hamilton’s car.

In the world championship, Verstappen is 8 points ahead of Hamilton, with two races to go. If Verstappen wins the race in Saudi Arabia on Sunday and drives the fastest lap, good for 26 points, he is world champion if Hamilton does not get further than sixth place (8 points). When the Briton finishes outside the points, second place is enough for Verstappen to take the title. However, there is a good chance that the world title fight will not be decided until the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi, on December 12.
