LONDON, England – Max Verstappen, 21, is the driver multiple F1 champion Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel should fear through the 2019 racing season.
That is, at least, the opinion of Red Bull team boss Christian Horner according to a Reuters report.
Hollander Verstappen won twice in 2018 and ended the season fourth overall. Mercedes’ Hamilton, 34, won 11 times to take the 2018 title, Vettel, 31, was second with five wins. Pointswise, however, Verstappen was second with his points for the second half of the season.
Horner again: “If we can provide him with the tools, he’s probably the driver that they fear the most.”
Verstappen, at 17, debuted as the sport’s youngest driver and won aged 18 at the 2016 Spanish GP.
