Lewis Hamilton Fears Rival Max Verstappen Will Dominate The Italian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton fears Max Verstappen will cruise to victory in Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix and extend his championship lead.

Hamilton finished only fifth in Saturday’s 18-lap sprint race in Monza following a poor start, with Verstappen taking second behind Valtteri Bottas.

Red Bull’s Verstappen increased his title advantage over Hamilton from three to five points, and he will also line up on pole for Sunday’s main event, with Bottas demoted to the back of the grid for taking on his fourth engine of the campaign – one more than is permitted under the rules.

Not only did Hamilton fail to score, but he will now have his work cut out on Sunday with a grid position of fourth – promoted one spot following Bottas’ penalty – and both Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris between him and Verstappen.

“You saw the pace of the Red Bull,” said Hamilton.

“I don’t know if Max was faster than Valtteri but now he is on pole it should be an easy win for him. For me, I have just to try and get past these McLarens.”

Hamilton, 36, has tasted victory just once in his past nine appearances – his controversial win at July’s British Grand Prix – and he heads into the 14th round of a scheduled 22 on the backfoot after his sluggish start.
