Red Bull boss Christian Horner is optimistic about his team's chances of winning the last two races of the 2017 season.

Max Verstappen, who won in Mexico last month, is 10.00 to triumph in Brazil this weekend before the season comes to an end in Abu Dhabi at the end of November.

Lewis Hamilton clinched the world title by finishing ninth in Mexico and the Mercedes driver is 15.00 to triumph in Sunday's race at Interlagos, while Sebastian Vettel is available at 2.10 and Valtteri Bottas at 2.37.

"The last four races we've had the quickest car on a Sunday," said Horner.

"Hopefully Brazil can be a good track for us and why not in Abu Dhabi? It will be great to finish the season with at least one more victory."

Verstappen has won two of the last four races, having also emerged victorious in Malaysia, while he was second in Japan and fourth in the USA.

The 20-year-old Dutchman is sixth in the drivers' standings with two races of the season remaining.

Hamilton has won nine races this year, including five of the last seven, and took both pole position and the victory in Brazil 12 months ago.

"Now the pressure is kind of off, we can go and enjoy these next couple of races," he said. "I think it's important that we focus exactly as we have and continue to race as we have.

"This is not an opportunity for us to take our eye off the ball."
