Hamilton feels for the fan as Verstappen set to seize a double in Singapore

As Red Bull’s flying Dutchman Max Verstappen could seize a F1 double as soon as by Singapore GP with six races to spare, seven-times F1 champion Lewis Hamilton unfurled in a recent interview that he felt for fans ahead of Singapore GP that could witness a second successive title for the 24-year-old Dutchman.

Verstappen won 11 out of 16 races this season and has had a lead over Leclerc in driver’s championship title race by 116 points, while Sunday’s Singapore GP would be his first chance to seize an F1 double.

In the matter of the fact, latest remark from Hamilton came forth as the F1 legend has still been bearing the brunt of the trauma incurred during last year’s title decider, when a mistake from the then-race referee Masi had costed him a record eighth championship title.

While being asked how he has been feeling about Red Bull’s Verstappen having been set to take a double at home with six races to spare in Singapore GP, the Mercedes’ driver said to the reporters, “Definitely I feel for the fans.

For us last year going right down to the wire, that was intense for everybody and so it's never great when a season finishes early, even when I've experienced having it finish early in places like Mexico. For you as the one individual, it's great.

But for the actual sport it's not spectacular... so I'm really grateful to have had 2008, right down to the last 17 seconds, and obviously last year pretty much the same. Let's hope for the future that it's a bit better”
