Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel’s epic battle makes Monza unmissable | Giles Richards
Formula One’s title rivals are expecting a fight to the finish, which may take its toll on the drivers but is exactly what fans and everyone else wants
Lewis Hamilton is a driver who wears his heart on his race suit but after victory at Spa his usual exhilaration was tempered by a somewhat cold detachment. In the Ardennes there was a steely acknowledgement that he had won only a minor battle in what promises to be a long fight.
Hamilton knows how tough this season’s title fight is going to be. He does so due to the competitiveness Ferrari showed in Belgium on what was expected to be a Mercedes track and because of how title rival Sebastian Vettel extracted everything from his car. For Hamilton it was a cause for caution but for the rest of us it was exactly the start the second half of the season needed and makes this weekend’s meeting at Monza unmissable.
