Max Verstappen’s resistance is finally ended as Lewis Hamilton takes the lead in Sao Paulo!

Lewis Hamilton delivered one of the comeback drives of his career at the Sao Paulo GP, charging from 10th to first to overtake Max Verstappen in a fierce battle and cut his rival’s title advantage.

It was a dramatic turnaround on a rollercoaster weekend for Hamilton, after suffering a qualifying disqualification and an engine penalty, and he capped his display by defeating Verstappen in another epic wheel-to-wheel duel.

Hamilton, having soared through the field in the early stages, and Verstappen, after passing Valtteri Bottas for the lead at the start, were head to head for much of the race and the Dutchman angered Hamilton and Mercedes with a questionable defense into Turn 4 on Lap 48.

The stewards decided no investigation was necessary but 11 laps later Hamilton, in a much faster Mercedes, finally executed that move and passed Verstappen for a much-needed victory.

He is now 15 points behind Verstappen with three races remaining in the 2021 season.

“This will go down as one of the great Formula 1 victories of all time,” said Sky F1’s David Croft.
