Nine points to take second place? That's not necessarily going to be easy. Sure with a win he's only got to beat Salom by two places, but it's the win that's the big ask. The further down the field he places the more places he has to beat Salom by. Even third place would mean he'd have to beat Salom by six whole places and that doesn't look all that likely.

Right now I'll bet he's regretting his childish tantrum.

So setting your sights on the actual championship and 2nd place is your motivation Maverick?!! of course you should be setting your sights on 2nd to make up for the pitiful antics in Sepang when you still had a chance. Idiot.

A great track for the Honda I reckon. More about cornering ability than top speed.

Could defo see Maverick winning and Salom coming 3rd or 4th. Hopefully a group of 6 or so battle it out untill the final corner!

Should be a great race to watch!

A third place in the championship is a great result for Salom, specially with all the problems he had with the engines. No pressure on him, it's all on Vinyales shoulders, who thought he was the virtual champion at the beginning of the season.
