Four days after Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen will be involved in a series of blows that will forever be sculpted in the books of the Formula 1 World Championship, the two candidates for the title are preparing for the last of the 22 races of the closest dispute in the last two times.

Two delegates intend to try to prevent the most hectic season of the last decade from being decided with a maneuver that can be considered tortuous, which has occurred in this course, both on the side of Hamilton —at Silverstone, when he sent Red Bull against the barriers — Like Verstappen — in Saudi Arabia, he blocked Mercedes several times and eased or squeezed between the two cars.

Equally resounding was the defeat of the 1997 World Cup, in Jerez, in which Michael Schumacher threw his Ferrari against Jacques Villeneuve (Williams), who, unlike the German, continued on the track and ended up celebrating the title —or Kaiser would be deprived of vice- championship days after, for being considered or directly responsible for an intentional accident.
