There are only six races left for the Formula 1 have a new world champion. Until now, Max Verstappen (Red Bull) is the season leader with 262.5 points, but is just six points ahead of Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) and everything can change.
This is the top ten of the Formula 1 positions.
Faced with this scenario, the ex-pilot Mark Webber expressed concern about the performance of the car from Verstappen and questioned the ability of Red bull to confront Mercedes.
“Based on the last few races, you have to wonder if (Verstappen) you will have a car that is fast enough to beat Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes “, he pointed Webber.
And he explained: “Before the race, I thought Max would pass Valtteri (Bottas) in those track conditions, but then it turned out that Verstappen I had no answer to Bottas’ speed. “
“I don’t know how he did it Mercedes, through adjustments to the engine or aerodynamic improvements, but I do not doubt that they have managed to take a step forward, “he later insisted on the technology used by the German team.
Nevertheless, Webber highlighted the work of Verstappen: “Max is giving everything possible. He drove brilliantly in Russia and I think he couldn’t have done better in Turkey. “
