THE PREDICTION

Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen both endured a difficult time at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix with the absence of either driver from the top two notable. That is the first time that has occurred this season and they will be eager to put their respective troubles behind them in France. Verstappen looked well set to extend his lead at the top of the standings before a tyre blowout ended his race with just a few laps left and he will fancy his chances of responding here by being first past the chequered flag to record his third win of the year.
