\”Lewis Hamilton Can Easily Beat Max Verstappen In The Same Red Bull Car,\” Claims F1 Drivers

Lewis Hamilton

Take four names for the best Formula One driver ever. You will say Aryton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, and Sebastian Vettel! But when you be asked to add the fifth name in the top 5 best formula One drivers, you will definitely remember Max Verstappen as suitable. The Red Bull driver has made his name great through the achievements of the past two years. For the records that Max has made this year with 15 Grand Prix wins and a World Title with four races remaining, no one passes him without giving appreciation. \”He is currently showing what insane means,\” stated Nico Rosberg about Max Verstappen with a heap of praise.

Obviously, no one can beat Max Verstappen at what level he is right now. But only the drivers who are ahead of him in the top 5 best Formula One drivers. This includes Lewis Hamilton. According to Nico Rosberg, who has been Hamilton\’s teammate for four years, there is no one as brilliant as Max Verstappen at present in the entire motorsport. But, with the same car, Lewis Hamilton is definitely the one who can beat the two-time world champion easily.

Nico Rosberg, Max Verstappen

Senna, Schumacher, Hamilton, The List Awaits Verstappen

The 2016 Mercedes World Champion, Nico Rosberg, believes that Max Verstappen will soon be rated among the top 5 drivers of formula one. Especially after how spectacularly he claimed his second championship. \”It is unbelievable to know how much talented Max Verstappen is and how much flawless he was,\” said Rosberg. He added, \”With Senna, Schumacher, and Hamilton, Verstappen\’s name will very soon be on the list.\”

Nico Rosberg is so impressed by the two-time world champion that he feels no doubt in considering Sergio Perez as weak. Checo has been Max Verstappen\’s teammate for two years now, and still, he remains under the shadow. With 15 wins this season, Max Verstappen broke the record of 13 set by Michael Schumacher and equaled by Sebastian Vettel. Max also holds the record for scoring the highest points in the driver\’s standings. He made 454 points, while his teammate Sergio Perez could only claim 305 points, 3 points behind Ferrari\’s ace, Charles Leclerc.

Sergio Perez and Pierre Gasly

Perez, Gasly, Albon, And No One, But Only Lewis Hamilton Can Beat Max Verstappen

However, not only Sergio Perez, Nico believes that none of Max Verstappen\’s previous teammates can match his brilliance. The only team-mate who was able to beat Max Verstappen with the same Red Bull car was Daniel Ricciardo in 2016 and also in 2017. Giving examples of Pierre Gasly and Alex Albon, the German-Finnish F1 driver tried to explain the fact that Max had reached so high. While the others got demoted. \”Max Verstappen was stronger than Sergio Perez\”, says Nico. This is because he believes that drivers can only be compared if they get the same car that Checo had.

\”Gasly, Perez, Alex, and all others, could not even reach half of Verstappen\’s level. Checo has a few moments closest to Max. But, the rest of the time he was more in no comparison at all,\” he continued.

Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen

Nevertheless, the former Mercedes driver who has seen Lewis Hamilton winning championships year after year cannot go on comparing him with Verstappen. Nico indeed believes that there is no one stronger than Verstappen. However, he never takes Hamilton\’s name in that because he knows that Lewis is the GOAT. \”I would definitely say, only Lewis Hamilton would be able to act at eye level with Max Verstappen if he were in the same car.\”
