The Race Direction in the role of Cruella De Mon, ruthless in disqualifying him at the end of Qualifying for a wing more damaged than irregular judging by the verdict of the Commissioners, a clumsy Mercedes like Orazio and Gaspare in coordinating a strategy of rare banality to the point of making externalize to Valtteri Bottas that from his point of view an easy brace was wasted. In all this, a Red Bull ready to do anything to make the skin – sporting speaking – of the Dalmatian Lewis Hamilton who once again drew from the inexhaustible source that he has within himself, a concentrate of talent and determination which, supported by a fresh and therefore perky engine as never before with few races still to be sustained, ensured that the seven-time world champion conquered success number 101, one of the most important of his career. A victory with which the reigning champion is back in full swing for the conquest of the eighth world title, a result that would definitely consign him to the legend.
“Wrapped in the green-gold flag, Senna’s heir sends Brazil, the world, into ecstasy – we read in today’s edition of The Corriere della Sera – Lewis Hamilton’s 101st success can change the history of the World Championship, and even if it does not happen it will still be remembered as a legendary feat, one of the most precious gems in F1.

The duel on the track between Hamilton and Verstappen was tough, from the point of view of the stewards correct even when both went off the track at the Descida do Lago on the occasion of the English driver’s first attack, to which the Dutchman responded by extending the braking until to force both of them to finish beyond the limit of the track. Later the World Cup leader tried to wave, again on the Reta Oposta, receiving a black and white warning flag. The next round came the blow of the knockout If on the track the duelists do not spare themselves, out between Red Bull and Mercedes it is war against the sword: “Between Mercedes and Red Bull it is total war, the three final races – two on unknown tracks, Qatar and Saudi Arabia; the last in Abu Dhabi – they will be fiery arenas and not for the climate. The fight on the track is the stuff of boarders compared to the low shots that fly with the engines off“added the He would run.
