Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen on F1's generation games | F1 News

Max Verstappen says he is not the only young F1 star capable of taking on Lewis Hamilton amid the sport’s rising generation of drivers.

Fresh from his breathtaking victory at the last race in Austria, Verstappen was this week hailed as the “the best driver in the world” over the past 12 months by his Red Bull team boss Christian Horner. Horner also backed the 21-year-old to beat Hamilton, F1’s five-time champion, were they pitted against each other in the same team.

Verstappen admitted it is “always good to have your team boss saying that” when he faced the media at the British GP on Thursday, but would not be drawn on whether he felt he would beat Hamilton in identical machinery.
