Lewis Hamilton warned of Max Verstappen 'trip up' ahead of Saudi Arabia Grand Prix

“The whole year has been quite cyclical and I think [Red Bull are] obviously hoping it’ll bounce back their way,” said the 62-year-old.

“I mean, they dominated in Mexico City, they could have won that any which way, and then obviously Mercedes went to Brazil with the fresh internal combustion engine. 

“It always looked like a Mercedes track in Qatar – and then it’s all turned around in a hurry. I think most people think that Saudi Arabia just looks like a massively fast track between two walls. You would think that plays into the hands of Mercedes.”

Heading into the final stages of the season, Hamilton is now just eight points behind Max Verstappen in the championship standings. 

Brundle admitted the pundits at Sky F1 are thoroughly enjoying the battle between the two titans, serving up a classic case of the young pretender taking on the championship veteran.
