According to him, the victory will be shared between the two protagonists of the championship: Charles Leclerc et Max Verstappen. It is only a matter of weather report. According to the former pilot McLaren, the Monegasque will be particularly favored if the race takes place on a dry track. While the reigning world champion on faster if the latter stands in the rain.
Even though Ferrari will introduce some changes this weekend, given the weather forecast, it’s Max Verstappen who is indeed the favorite this weekend. Juan-Pablo Montoya also bet on him for the victory in Miami:
“I think the biggest winner of a wet track would be Max [Verstappen], he would have a big advantage. It seems to be very strong and comfortable in the wet.If it’s dry, I’d probably put my money on Ferrari. […] But if I was a bettor, I’d probably put my money on Max. Especially with the Miami weather”he told theVegasInsider.
During his interview, the Colombian particularly emphasized the Red Bull driver’s last performance at Imola. According to him, Charles Leclerc’s error will stick in his mind until the end of the championship. It’s a psychological battle who starts :
“If Imola’s Max Verstappen shows up, Ferrari and Leclerc will struggle to beat him. It will be interesting to see how Charles behaves after last week’s mistake. Will he keep committing, or will he take his performance down a notch just to be careful and not make a mistake? If you do that, then you’re putting yourself in a bad spot, because you’re taking away the performance. Unless the team tells him: ‘Keep pushing, don’t worry about it’. If she told him that, he might still win the race. »
