Martin Brundle expects an “even-stevens” fight between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton

After finishing three places ahead of Lewis Hamilton at the recently concluded Turkish Grand Prix, Max Verstappen has regained his lead in the drivers’ championship. Heading into the US Grand Prix weekend, the Dutchman leads the championship by just six points.

And with just six rounds remaining this season, former British driver Martin Brundle expects an “even-stevens” title fight between the title protagonists for the rest of the season.

“The next two circuits in Mexico and Brazil, at higher altitudes, we see that the layout of the Honda power unit really seems to work well at the higher altitudes. It seems to generate more power,” said Martin Brundle.

“So I’d say Mexico and Brazil should favour Red Bull. Maybe Abu Dhabi [too], Max dominated in Abu Dhabi last year for Red Bull.”

“We don’t know about Qatar. For example, that’s a completely new grand prix, so is Saudi Arabia, so they’re great unknowns. It’s even-stevens I’d say, for the last six races,” concluded the former British driver.
