Dutch Max verstappen (Red Bull) and the British Lewis hamilton (Mercedes) - tied on points (369.5), but with an advantage for the first, who will start from pole and is the leader, with one more win (9) - will be played this Sunday, from the front row of the grill, the World Cup Formula One most exciting and controversial of recent years, to be resolved in the last of the 22 races of the year: the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, in Yas Marina, the circuit of the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
Verstappen, 24, who aspires to capture his first title and becoming the first pilot from the Netherlands to do so, he dominated qualifying by covering the 5,281 meters of the circuit in one minute, 22 seconds and 109 thousandths, 371 less than Hamilton; twelve years older than him and aiming for an unprecedented eighth title, which would undo in his favor the tie that unites him with the German Michael Schumacher and would make him, statistically, the best driver of all time.
The young Dutch star, who could also win the first title for the Honda motorcyclist since he achieved it for the last time in 1991, aboard a McLaren, the mythical Ayrton Senna - three times winner of the World Championship for Brazil -; completed a sensational performance. Redeemable for your thirteenth pole'in F1 and a good dose of optimism to face a race in which both contenders will start with different strategies: the Dutchman will do it with the soft tire, unlike his great rival, who will do it with the medium: the that they used in the second qualifying round (Q2).
