Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton will be looking to continue his great form when he takes part in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on December 5.
The British superstar looks unstoppable at the moment having won the last races as he looks to successfully defend his Formula One world title. 
A dominant victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix on November 14 was followed by another impressive win at the Qatar Grand Prix on November 21.

Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing-Honda and Alpine-Renault driver Fernando Alonso finished second and third respectively in Qatar.
Verstappen is placed at the top of the Drivers' Championship standings as he looks to go all the way and win his maiden Formula One world championship. 
Hamilton is still placed second on the standings - eight points behind Verstappen and he is keen to become the first driver to win eight world titles.
The accomplished driver will move above Verstappen on the standings if he wins this weekend's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix with one race left.

"It’s been a hell of a year so to be at this point of the season and have back-to-back wins is a great feeling," Hamilton said following the Qatar Grand Prix. 
"It was a pretty straight forward race for me, a little bit lonely but of course, we needed those points, so a really solid job by the team. A big thank you to everyone trackside and back at the factories for all their hard work.
"I’m really grateful for these points and it’s amazing to be able to close the gap so much in the last two weeks. We’ve still got our work cut out, but we’re loving such a close battle and the challenge that it brings," he continued. 
"It was a real shame for Valtteri today, having to retire, but the pace was good this weekend and that puts us in good stead for the next two races. We’ll be bringing our triple a-game for those."
Mercedes are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they are followed by Red Bull Racing-Honda and Ferrari respectively.
