Saudi Arabia GP forecast: can Mercedes continue its unique Formula 1 victory after Hamilton's victory in Qatar?

Mercedes has dominated the Formula 1 field since the start of the turbo-hybrid era in 2014. Interestingly, they have won at all of the new venues added to the F1 calendar since that time.

When Sochi joined in 2014, it was Lewis Hamilton who took the victory in Russia. Later in 2016, when the Formula 1 paddock drove to Baku for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, it was German Nico Rosberg who saw the checkered flag.

When Mugello and Portimao were added to last season’s calendar, it was the seven-time world champion who won those races. And in 2021, when Qatar was hosting a Grand Prix, it was the British Knight who took the checkered flag.

After a week’s break, the Formula 1 circus is now heading to a new route in Saudi Arabia. Knowing the dominance they have shown on new routes since 2014, the Silver Arrows hope to do the same in the twenty-first run of this season.

The title race is still intense with two races remaining

Hamilton won the Losail International Circuit in Qatar that weekend, beating title contender Verstappen. The Red Bull driver maintained his lead in the championship race, but the lead has shrunk to just eight points.

Hamilton celebrates two victories, the Brazilian Grand Prix and the Qatar Grand Prix. With a break after the intense triple header, Hamilton hopes to start next weekend with a win at the Saudi Arabain Grand Prix. While Max tries to put an end to his winning streak.
