Giedo van der Garde: ‘I expect Max Verstappen to finish it in Abu Dhabi’ | formula 1

Max Verstappen can become Formula 1 world champion next Sunday. In the run-up to the race in Saudi Arabia, we ask an expert the same four questions every day. Today: good friend of Max and driver Giedo van der Garde.




Will it be decided next weekend?

,,I do not think so. It’s a new track for everyone, so nobody knows what’s going to happen. There are quite a few long straights and Lewis can go really fast there with his new bike. So it’s going to be a nice fight between those two, but Max isn’t going to win with that lead. It really comes down to the last race.”

Will Verstappen or Hamilton become champion?

Max Verstappen. It will not be easy, but let us as the Netherlands fully support it. Look, we have to remember that what Max has already accomplished this year is amazing. Red Bull has made a super comeback and built a good car.”

,,And Max is really on fire. He did nothing wrong and took everything out of it. But yes, you are dealing with a competitor who has already become world champion seven times and knows how to win such a championship. But I still say that Max Verstappen will be champion.”

What will make the difference?

,,We will see that in the last race. It is then important who is at the front. It’s a track where Max won last year, so it suits him well. Red Bull is always strong with those medium and slow speed tracks because they have a strong mechanical grip. I expect him to finish it in Abu Dhabi.”

Where are you going to watch Sunday?

,,I will be with Ziggo for the last race, but next Sunday I’ll just watch at home on the couch. And if he succeeds, yes .. then a bottle of champagne will open. I know Max, Jos and the Verstappen family well. It would be a world achievement if it succeeds.”
