But Hamilton’s chances of wrapping up his seventh championship with three races to spare were still boosted on Saturday due to the fact he qualified three places ahead of ninth-placed Bottas, his sole title challenger, in the sister Mercedes. 28:41 Sky F1’s Ted Kravitz casts his eye across Saturday’s action in Istanbul. “They have a much quicker race car [Red Bull and Mercedes], that’s just the reality, but that doesn’t mean we can’t score a bunch of points. We are fighting for that third place in the Constructors’ and it’s a great opportunity with both cars starting at the front to pick up some big points.”Red Bull’s Max Verstappen certainly represents their biggest threat with the Dutchman starting between the two Racing Points in second place. Verstappen has only won once this year, at August’s 70th Anniversary GP at Silverstone, and was disappointed to miss out on pole having set the pace in every session up to Q3.“I think Lewis and Valtteri are a bit further down but I’m also starting now on the inside [of the grid] so that’s not very lovely,” said Verstappen. “But we’ll find out tomorrow.” – Advertisement – Lewis Hamilton starts from an unfamiliar grid position but remains on course to make F1 history by clinching a record-equalling seventh world title in Sunday morning’s Turkish GP.Live only on Sky Sports F1 and Main Event at the early time of 10.10am, with build-up from 8.30am, Hamilton starts from sixth place but will be champion for 2020 as long as team-mate Valtteri Bottas does not outscore him by eight or more points.- Advertisement – Buy a Sky Sports Day Pass for NOW TV to watch Sunday’s race coverage live.
