Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen in unforgettable F1 title fight in 32C heat at first ever Saudi Arabia GP in Jeddah

, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen in unforgettable F1 title fight in 32C heat at first ever Saudi Arabia GP in Jeddah

FORMULA ONE is set for a thrilling climax to an unforgettable season as Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen battle it out for glory.

Verstappen currently leads the championship by eight points and can clinch the title – his first – should he outscore Hamilton by 18 points on Sunday at the Saudi Arabian GP.

There’s just eight points in the championship
Lewis Hamilton versus Max Verstappen is one of the best title races in years

The Middle Eastern country is hosting its inaugural race in Jeddah on a rapidly-constructed 6km circuit that promises to be one of the fastest on the calendar.

In fact, it is so new, building work is still going on as they try to get as much completed in time for Sunday’s showdown.

But not only is this track quick, despite having nearly 30 corners, it is also a street circuit – like Monaco and Singapore.

And that means it could also spell double-jeopardy for F1’s title contenders, as a high-speed dirty track bordered by concrete crash barriers all make things rather tricky.

As he’s eight points behind, Hamilton simply cannot afford to not finish this race to take his title defence to the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi next weekend.

Despite the enormity of the task, which has seen him slice into Verstappen’s 19-point lead, Hamilton has remained remarkably cool in the build up to this week’s race.
