Max Verstappen being the title favorite alongside Lewis Hamilton has been a driver to looks out for this season. The Dutchman has clinched the recently concluded Italian Grand Prix and was just seven-tenth of a second slower than Hamilton in the season opener Bahrain Grand Prix and finished at P2 behind him.

With Lewis looking forward to grabbing his eighth individual title and beat Michael Schumacher’s record, Verstappen is the strongest challenge between him and the title. Mercedes as everyone knows is already the top team in the history of Formula One with seven titles altogether and will further look forward to beating Red Bull and extend their run to the eighth Constructor Championship. It will be interesting to see who gets the better of who at the end of the season.
