He told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “It's an exciting challenge between two great drivers. I hope they fight until the end. If I had to bet, I'd put my money on Lewis because I think Mercedes will win in the end. But I'm rooting for Max. It would be good for the sport to break the status quo.”

- Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has expressed his support for a London Grand Prix, saying that it would be “fantastic” for the city and F1.

He told the London Evening Standard: “We’re speaking to Formula 1 and they’re really receptive. The reality is that the reigning champion of the world is a Brit. Lewis Hamilton is a credit to our nation and the sport, and it would be great to have a Grand Prix in the capital city, to have Silverstone and London on the calendar.

“I think next year would be too soon but I’ve been really impressed with those at Formula 1 and I’m keen to bring it as soon as possible.”
