After the summer break with 11 out of 23 (?) races completed, F1 returns to Belgium with Hamilton being 8 points ahead of championship contender Verstappen. Max had a fair share of bad luck in the last few races where Lewis managed to pick up huge points and close the gap that existed. The next three back-to-back races in Belgium, Netherlands and Italy will be crucial for both drivers and teams as they will be heading towards the last part of the season. This year’s is perhaps the most unpredictable world title fight of the last eight years, especially because two drivers from different teams are fighting for it.
The model predicts Hamilton to win the race starting from the pole position with Max seeing the chequered flag second. Personally, I think that the margins for error will be tiny with Perez possibly capitalizing on any opportunities that arise. I will also keep an eye on the Ferraris that seem to have gained back some of their strength.
