When the field ran this race in 2016, Lewis Hamilton took the checkered flag to beat out his teammate, Nico Rosberg. Now, the defending champion will have to battle another German driver. No matter which driver wins, they will have their work cut out for them. Four of the top competitors to look for in this race are Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, Sebastian Vettel, and Valtteri Bottas. There are others, but there is a good chance one of them will win.
