United States GP: Max Verstappen has only Hamilton to fear in American sprint race

United States GP: Max Verstappen has only Hamilton to fear in American sprint race

In contrast to the spectacular display in Qatar, the sprint race did not produce an unexpected winner. Immediately after the start, Max Verstappen (Red Bull Racing) closed the door on relentless challenger Charles Leclerc (Ferrari), who lost second place to Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton. And a good thing for tension, as the British record champion came dangerously close to the leader in the early stages.

There was no attack, so the top 3 spots in the American sprint race were fixed. Charles Leclerc moved into third, but will be mainly concerned about the pace of Red Bull, Mercedes and McLaren, who will start chasing tomorrow immediately. After all, Ferrari’s Monaco starts from pole position.

His team-mate Spaniard Carlos Sainz was the only one to gamble on the red, soft tire instead of opting for medium tyres. Initially he followed Leclerc, but backlash was inevitable. Lando Norris (McLaren) and Sergio Perez (Red Bull Racing) both passed the red car. George Russell was stuck behind the Ferrari and lost a position to Pierre Gasly (Alpine) due to a time penalty.

You don’t have to lose sleep over the Grand Prix. The match starts tomorrow at 9 PM.
