Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton once again led the way at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix as Red Bull and Mercedes lead the way in the F1 standings, with Damon Hill remarking the difference between the teams is wafer thin.
While the Mercedes driver came out on top in Bahrain, it was the Dutchman who came out on top in Italy thanks to a determined drive in tricky conditions. Hamilton, who made a rare mistake, battled back to claim second meaning the two drivers are separated by just one point after the opening two races thanks to Brit collecting an additional point after finishing with the fastest lap on Sunday.
"It's so close between the Red Bull with Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes," Hill said on the Sky Sports broadcast. "There's only a wafer thin paper between them.
"It was a very bold move down the hill [on Hamilton at the start of the race. All you have to do is touch a bit of grass and it would have been a catastrophe. He [Max] forcefully held his line, and I think Lewis made a bit of a mistake holding on to his position.
"He squeezed him [Lewis] onto the rumble strips and of course he damaged the front wing end plate."
