Max Verstappen became the first driver to win 14 races in a single season with his win in Mexico last time out, and the Red Bull driver is given hearty orders to extend the record further at this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix .
The Dutch double world champion is the first to point out that his achievement was helped by the large number of events on this year’s calendar, but the fact that he has won eight of the last nine Grands Prix illustrates his level of dominance This year.
The 21st and penultimate race of the season takes place in Sao Paulo and for the third time this season the grid for Sunday’s main event will be decided by a 100km sprint on Saturday.
On paper, that adds a degree of uncertainty, but with Verstappen winning the sprints in Italy and Austria this season, the bookies’ faith in him is understandable.
Something that could affect the result is the weather, with showers of varying severity forecast for the whole weekend.
Verstappen is not averse to racing in the rain, but the driver with the best wet track record this season is his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez.
The Mexican veteran has two wins and two second places in the four races where rain tires have been used this season.
Perez arrives in fine form after finishing third in front of his beloved home crowd last time out and is one of the few drivers with something to fight for as he is just five points clear of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc at the second place in the championship.
Red Bull said its aim for the rest of the season was to secure second place for its second driver. It’s unrealistic to expect Verstappen to wave to his team-mate, but the pair have recorded five 1-2 finishes this season and Perez is worth a bet either way in the market outright.
Lewis Hamilton overcame two penalties to claim a sensational victory in Brazil last year and is the second favorite for what would be his first win of the season.
The seven-time world champion has finished second to Verstappen in the last two races, having used a different strategy to the Dutchman.
However, his chances seem to be a bit overstated given that there is no suggestion he would have done better using more conventional tire tactics, despite being helped in Mexico by Ferrari who got his setup completely wrong.
Mercedes have shown more in training than most and the Silver Arrows appear to be leading the opening session.
It won’t be a regular first practice session, with qualifying taking place on the same day, but Hamilton and George Russell have both been the best in a Friday session over the past four race weekends.
