Two races from the end of the 2021 world championship, and with only eight points separating the top two riders at the top of the world championship standings, it becomes increasingly difficult to express a prediction on who will win the title between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. The Dutch driver of Red Bull, currently in the lead of the rankings, would win the first seal of his career in F1, while the British driver of Mercedes would set the all-time record of eight world championship wins.
In this thrilling challenge, which has known its last chapter at Interlagos, there is another former driver who, right on this track in 2008, lost at the last corner what would have been his only world success, which instead ended up in the hands of Hamiton: Felipe Massa. The Brazilian, interviewed by Sportweek, pinned his hopes on Verstappen’s statement, motivating this preference for two particular reasons:
“Max deserves it – the former Ferrari driver analyzed – and it would be great to have a new world champion. He would give everything to win, even if it meant falling into a quarry. He has always been very fast, but not mentally ready. Now, however, he is much more mature and does not make mistakes. Overall, it’s a different driver than that deserves the world championship. He is a rising champion “. In addition to these statements, Massa finally hopes for another reason why the Dutch should impose himself, this time following the reasons of the heart: “I wish Schumacher maintained the primacy of the seven world championships won“.
