- Max Verstappen
I like him.
I don’t have much time for his father Jos, he’s been done for assault and has allegations of domestic abuse hanging over him. Certainly his presence in Max’s team garage hasn’t necessarily been helpful or benign.
Max himself seems to be commendably self-aware and although a ruthless wheel to wheel racer (like a young Hamilton) he’s analytical in a way that Leclerc isn’t. He’ll win WDCs. Whether or not Red Bull will give him a car capable of a World Championship is a different matter, I wouldn’t bet against Max sitting in a Merc for 2021.Posted 1 month agoPJM1974Member
At least he was honest re the Mexican incident, rather than inviting a stewards’ investigation into whether or not he was aware of the yellow flag. The salient fact is that he’d still have been on pole if he’d lifted, in pressing on for glory he incurred a penalty.
I’m not sure that every F1 driver would’ve been as up front in the press conference.Posted 1 month agohols2Member
As above, very talented driver, but arrogant and massive sense of entitlement. He has matured a lot over the last two years, but I think Hamilton has always been a much more disciplined driver on the track so he doesn’t throw points away by taking silly risks in overtaking or defending position – that’s been the key to his success. Hamilton can also be a bit of a dick, but nowhere near as much as MV. MV might be the fastest guy out there, but I still rate Hamilton as a better driver overall.Posted 1 month agoboomerlivesSubscriber
I don’t think he’s quite as good as all the hype; Leclerc has shaded him this year.
He has calmed and matured and he’s had a better season for it. I prefer him smashing out in a blaze of carbon fibre personally.
He may yet be the trigger of Hamilton to Ferrari. If Merc sign MV, Lewis will be off.Posted 1 month agoDaffySubscriber
Max is, out and out probably the fastest driver in F1 right now, but I recon if you put Lewis and leclerk in similar machinery, max might win more races, but still come 3rd in a championship. When he gets pressured, he becomes volatile and can make mistakes. Lewis thinks of the long game. Leclerc still has a lot to learn.Posted 1 month ago
