I am of course no F1 expert, but I can assure you one thing today; ”Half of the Netherlands is hanging in front of the tube”. [their flat screen, mobile phone or whatever] To see Max Verstappen cross the finish line first and take this season’s Formula 1 title. Whether he will succeed is questionable, it depends on many factors and then desperate measures may not be such a bad idea for his opponent.
Of course I can’t see inside your heads, but if you’re as desperate as shown in this comic below, then I don’t have much hope for his direct opponent either.
You can find this comic in Easyriders Magazine issue 95, from May 1981, on page 23.
