Hamilton chasing Verstappen in F1 battle

By Chris Dinsdale

December 5, 2021 - The Saudi Arabia Formula One World Championship Grand Prix takes place over 50 laps of the brand-new 6.174km Jeddah Corniche Circuit. Only eight points separate rivals Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton with just two races remaining to decide who wins the title.

Verstappen’s recent race wins in the United States and Mexico maintained his advantage over his rival, but Hamilton’s superb win in Sao Paulo and convincing Qatar victory cut the gap between the pair.

Hamilton will surpass the record of Michael Schumacher if he secures his eighth Formula 1 championship title, while Verstappen is targeting a first crown.

Remaining races:
R21 Dec 5: Saudi Arabia, Street circuit, Jeddah
R22 Dec 12: Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi
