Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are expected to be separated by ‘two points,’ according to F1 statistics specialists.

In the final two races of the season, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen will face off in a bumper-to-bumper battle for the Formula One championship. Analysts believe Verstappen will win by a hair. According to a group of sports data analysts, the Formula One title fight will go down to the wire.

All season, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen have been at odds in what is shaping up to be one of the most tight and entertaining championship battles in recent memory.

Verstappen will be named victor by just two points, according to experts at Sporting Index.

The Red Bull driver currently leads Hamilton by eight points as he tries to win his first Formula One championship, but the Mercedes driver is reducing the gap after back-to-back Grand Prix victories.

With only two races remaining, Sporting Index believes Verstappen will finish the season with 386 points, while Hamilton will finish with 384.

To predict the season’s climax, analysts looked at race statistics and closely examined each driver’s form.

“Formula One is having one of its most exciting title battles in years, and we’re anticipating things to heat up even more as the season draws to a close,” said Sporting Index Head of Trading Neville Burdock.

“We still predict Red Bull’s Max Verstappen to win, with the Belgian-Dutch racer favored to score 386 points, just two points ahead of Lewis Hamilton’s 384.”

Verstappen and Hamilton have been involved in a number of contentious track battles in recent weeks, with both drivers earning penalties at Silverstone, Monza, and most recently in Sao Paulo.

Only Max has a mathematical chance of winning the title at the penultimate round in Saudi Arabia, but given the high-speed track layout and Mercedes’ recent performances, that is unlikely.

After tying the famous Michael Schumacher for the most wins in Formula One last year, the British driver is aiming for a record-eighth championship.
