With both the Drivers and Constructors titles both wrapped up, Max Verstappen seeks to create even more history with his dominant Red Bull team. He is in contention to achieve the highest percentage wins in a single season beating Michael Schumacher’s incredible scoring of 85% of the total points available to a driver. Unsurprisingly he starts on pole for the race and is expected to lead throughout as he has shown all season long.Embed from Getty Images
More history was written yesterday in the Sprint Race as Mclaren driver Oscar Piastri came home first to win his first ever race in the highest calibre of motorsport. He pipped his teammate Lando Norris to a maiden victory and setting the future in stone for Mclaren who look to achieve great things in the future. Piastri starts sixth and Norris is in tenth.
Mercedes duo George Russell and Lewis Hamilton will line up second and third respectively and look good for an attempt of a double podium as they have the advantage of working together in scoring as many points possible to edge them closer to second in the Constructors World Championship battle against Ferrari. Qualifying for them was not the best with Carlos Sainz leaving team mate Charles Leclerc out to dry. Sainz was eliminated in Q2 finishing in P12 and Leclerc on the other side of the garage in fifth.
