Ferrari Team Principal Mattia Binotto picks Lewis Hamilton as the likely winner of the 2021 Formula 1 championship over Max Verstappen.

With the 2021 championship fought very closely, it’s natural that many F1 personalities are asked to pick their favourite to win the title.

Ferrari’s Mattia Binotto was asked who he believes will come out on top between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen.

“It is an exciting challenge,” said the Italian told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“We are talking about two extraordinary drivers, of great talent. Lewis has obviously already demonstrated this, and Max is unquestionably so, for his speed and for what he showed.

“If I had to bet, I would bet on Lewis, because I think Mercedes will win it at the end. It is a solid team and has shown that it is in all these last years.

“I think it has all the elements to win it, they are the reigning champions and as such they have to be beaten.

“If I have to make a choice, I say Lewis because he is the reigning champion. I hope they can fight until the end, that the championship remains open, giving us an exciting fight and a battle as close as possible.

“However, I also applaud Max. It would be good for the sport if the status quo is broken,” concluded Binotto.
