Hamilton champion

The Turkish GP promises to be an interesting race, not least because of the championship. This is what Lewis Hamilton has to do to become champion.

Today the GP of Turkey planned. First a small reminder: the race starts at 11:00! Legend has it that our F1 editor @jaapiyo this afternoon is going to visit his grandmother and with Uncle Chase and Uncle Recep has been able to arrange for the circus to start a little earlier. This way our Jaap is on time at the Bosche Bollen can.

Exciting race

The race is going to be an exciting one anyway. Because there are a few things different than usual. For example, Lance Stroll is on pole position. Yes, the Racing Points did very well in the rain, Perez was third. Max Verstappen is in between. In any case, it will be very exciting at the start.

But so many things are happening. Alexander Albon is still under pressure. The distance to teammate Verstappen was not too bad this weekend. Many eyes will be on the Thai-British driver, because he is actually racing in borrowed time. But most importantly, Lewis Hamilton can take his seventh world title and thus level up with Michael Schumacher.

This is what Hamilton has to do to become champion

Lewis Hamilton has a hand at making a mess of it at the first opportunity to become world champion. It seems like that again today, because the record driver starts from only P6, while he normally has a subscription to the front row.

But the chances of Lewis Hamilton becoming world champion are in Turkey, depends mainly on his teammate Valtteri Bottas. Because the chances are that it will be a chaotic race, we will go through all possible scenarios with you!

Scenarios for Hamilton to become champion:

    It’s not that difficult, he just needs to finish in front of bottas and the team will take care of that too. Ham will be champion today, as long as he doesn’t crash. The race itself becomes more exciting than whether ham becomes champion.
