Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg Set to Resume Title Battle
The summer Formula 1 break is over and the competition between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg is set to continue in the battle for the title.There are eight races left in the season starting with Spa in Belgium. Hamilton will be hoping to end his run of bad qualifying races; he has had major mishaps in the last six of them. Meanwhile Rosberg will be hoping that he can extend his championship lead.
The race at Spa is always a real battle, as double world champion Fernando Alonso said, “One lap of Spa is like 20 at any other track, in terms of the excitement and adrenalin it generates.”
The 7.004km track is the longest, and one of the fastest, in the season.
In addition to the battle between Hamilton and Rosberg for the drivers’ title, team title holders Red Bull will also be hoping to win another race. The reigning world champions will have been working to achieve a jump in performance over the break, just as they did last season after which Sebastian Vettel won nine consecutive races.
Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo’s won in Hungary before the break and now the team will be fully focused on defending its title.
