Lewis Hamilton tipped to level Max Verstappen points and set up 'extraordinary' finale

“But on a circuit that seems to favour cars with good straight line speed, and Mercedes planning to use the ‘Brazil engine’ in Lewis’s car, the defending champion will be looking for nothing less than a win.”

Indeed, Hamilton’s straight-line speed in Sao Paulo was something to behold, and if it does make a return in Saudi Arabia he will take some beating. 

The performance advantage allowed the Brit to race through the pack in the qualifying sprint, and eventually overtake Verstappen in the race itself after a hard-fought battle. 

The title race has not been without controversy though, and Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko has questioned where the Silver Arrows have found their extra engine performance.
