The two main protagonists of the 2021 World Cup will start side by side at Le Castellet. Max: “My Red Bull is really good, nice pole”. Lewis: “I hope to have some chances already in turn 1. And if it rains, better”
The battle continues. In the French GP of Formula 1 it will again be Max Verstappen against Lewis Hamilton: and on the grid the two contenders for the 2021 World Championship will start side by side. The post-qualification words are mutual flattery but at the green light it will be a total battle. With Lewis hoping for “rain”.
Max Verstappen was really satisfied after pole: “It’s a really good weekend so far, on a track where we usually had some difficulties. I took pole where Mercedes dominated in the past, and today the team did a really good job ”. Then there is the race, and it is always a roulette wheel: “Yes, Saturday does not give points for the World Cup, unfortunately. But I’m sure we will have a good race, I want to take back the 25 points lost in Baku. Also because my Red Bull is really fine ”.
the words of hamilton
The seven-time world champion chased all weekend, but at the right moment he placed a paw that is not worth the pole but allows him to immediately play for great chances from the first corner of the GP: “We have a good Mercedes, in the meantime, even if on the straight compared to the Red Bulls I lose. But we have a good race ahead of us and I hope to have some opportunities immediately in turn 1 and then with the strategy. Who knows, it might even rain. Indeed, I would gladly do the rain dance ”Hamilton closed.
