Lewis Hamilton has stated that he has to win the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend in order to keep up with Max Verstappen in the Formula One world title battle. The Mercedes driver, however, warned that the effort would be extremely difficult, since he expected Verstappen’s Red Bull to win at Interlagos once more.
With 107 points available from the final four races, the world champion is 19 points behind Verstappen. Hamilton confessed he couldn’t afford to lose any more points after Verstappen dominated the last two races, the US and Mexican Grands Prix.
“Every race is a must-win race,” he said. “It’s been a must-win race since forever, particularly since we came back form the break but we have not really been able to do so.
“The task is as steep as it can be. Their pace was phenomenal in the last race. They have a strong car, they have the strongest car you can tell. Last time here they were incredibly strong, so we anticipate they will be hard to beat this weekend.”
