F1 legend Lewis Hamilton shares an honest take on trailing Max Verstappen in the driver’s standings with just four races to go this season.

After qualifying for a front-row position at the Mexican Grand Prix, Mercedes and Hamilton had goals of winning the race—all for catching up to Verstappen.

With the upcoming Brazilian Grand Prix, Hamilton stresses his intention for each of the last few races.

“Must-win,” the Briton replied referring to the Brazilian GP.

“Every race is a must-win race.”

Despite leading the constructor’s championship, even Mercedes’ star admits that Red Bull has been giving them the business all year.

“They’ve had a strong car all year, they’ve had the strongest car,” Hamilton said. “I think we’ve done as good as we could.

“Last time here [in Brazil] they were incredibly strong so we’re anticipating again they’ll be very hard to beat this weekend. But where there’s a will there’s a way, hopefully.”

Hamilton is gunning for his eighth F1 world championship, but it seems that a young and talented superstar named Max Verstappen stands his way— with a slim 19-point lead. As of now, Hamilton may need an incredible comeback going his way for him to overtake Red Bull’s Dutch superstar.
