The Saudi Arabian GP has already started, a grand prize that can decide the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship, yes, he can only do it in favor of Max Verstappen. The Dutch driver arrives at the unknown circuit in Jeddah with eight points ahead of Lewis Hamilton in the general classification, an income that can help him win the title this Sunday, although for this they have to add a series of rather complicated circumstances.

At the Saudi Arabian GP, ​​the only one who can be proclaimed world champion is Max, although he needs an unlikely carom: He should come out with 26 points of advantage over Lewis (because the tie is worth him by adding more victories) and that means increasing his income by 18 points. It would have to be second and for Hamilton not to add (11th or worse), second plus fastest lap and for English to be 10th or worse, or Max first and Lewis seventh or worse (without taking into account fast laps for one or the other, which add more possibilities).
