Who is likely to win at Paul Ricard?

Many assume that Red Bull’s Max Verstappen will take the win as he is starting from pole position. Not only that, but the Dutchman is fully motivated to get a win as it was taken away from him at Azerbaijan, due to a tire puncture that saw him retire from the Grand Prix.

However, Britain’s Knight is also looking to bounce back, as he failed to win at Monaco or at Baku. Hence, Hamilton will attack Verstappen from the second the lights go out and steal his lead from the get-go.
