How will Red Bull cope with the pressure? 'They have the slightly faster car'

The title battle between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton is still in full swing. Hamilton took back the lead in the championship after the Russian Grand Prix, but the gap is only two points.

There is a lot of pressure on both teams with only seven races to go this season. "I believe Red Bull has the slightly faster car at the moment. The question is how they handle the pressure, how they are going to make the calls and how everything is going to work out. Right now you have to recognize that Lewis [Hamilton] and Max [Verstappen] are on a different level compared to the rest", Juan Pablo Montoya is quoted by the Dutch branch of Motorsport.com.

"I think Sergio [Perez] and Valtteri [Bottas] are having a bit of a hard time with the cars and as a team sport that makes it tricky in terms of strategy and so on. It's going to come down to these two, and a race where someone like Lando is snatching points."

Montoya expects more good races

As well as regaining the lead in the championship, Hamilton also picked up his 100th win this weekend. "It's unbelievable. He's had a great career and he's done a great job. It's been incredible and I think there are more wins to come. And I think there's going to be a lot more good races this year, because as someone said I don't think they're done crashing yet!", said Montoya.
