Welcome to the preview of the crucial race that will take place on the Jeddah High Speed ​​​​Street Circuit! There are only two dates left for the tournament to close. Max Verstappen He arrives as the lead for this event (starts at 6.30pm and will have 50 laps) eight points behind Lewis Hamilton(351.5 for the Dutch versus 343.5 for the British).

It should be kept in mind that the Red Bull man has the ‘match ball’ to be the champion in the Grand Prix of Saudi Arabia. Red Bull needs to increase its lead 18 more points. In this way, he will have 26 differences with Hamilton and only one race (Abu Dhabi) will be left.

Invoices It’s easy to do. Here’s what Max needs today for the coronation:

Win, do the fastest lap and Hamilton is sixth or worse.

Wayne and Hamilton are seventh or worse.

– Be second, perform the fastest lap and Hamilton is 10th or worse.

Be second and don’t score Hamilton

But it won’t be easy at all. First of all, comes third. He hit the stick, but went toward the wall in the last corner when he finished. Mercedes signed a double that puts the 33 on the ropes.

The good news for Red Bull is that The RB16B gearbox is fine. This means that he will not have to be penalized and, therefore, will fall behind Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.

But on the energy drink team they’re not 100% sure. Helmut Marko They dropped they were prepared just in case. “We’ve already seen it with Leclerc in Monte Carlo. It had a similar effect, they decided not to change it (the gearbox) and then, on the warm-up lap, the consequences came and he couldn’t even start the element.” He added, “We’re so fast that we don’t want to take any chances. If the gearbox is damaged or there are signs something is wrong, we’ll change it. It’s hard to overtake here, but still, will.”

Secondly, Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz They will have to be aggressive if they want to get into the point area. Asturian starts from 13th and Madrid from 15th.

Without further ado, let’s get started!
