This year Max Verstappen has his last chance to become the youngest world champion in Formula 1 history. Given the current situation in the championship, Max’s chances of success are slim, but this does not prevent Red Bull Racing chief Christian Horner from comparing Verstappen to Michael Schumacher, the most titled driver. in history.

Christian Horner: “I compare Max with Michael of the mid-90s, when he played for Benetton. Few of Schumacher’s teammates could pilot the car in the same manner as Michael. I believe Max has the same ability to find an approach to technique.

Our car has certain nuances, weak points, but they do not prevent Max from going fast. In the case of Pierre Gasly, sometimes with Daniel Riccardo and often with Alex Albon, these nuances affect piloting. It is to eliminate such moments that our team is working to reduce the sensitivity of the machine. “

However, Horner admits that by focusing on Max’s preferences, the team is putting his team-mate at a disadvantage: “In the end, we have to solve a dilemma, since it is only natural to focus on a driver who shows faster times. It happens that at a briefing with the engineers, the riders express different opinions, but we instinctively listen more to the rider who is faster at the moment.

Max has great natural speed, talent and ability. However, he is very confident in himself. He originally had an incredible sense of the machine, and now all this has been added to the experience. Putting all the pieces together, you have an incredibly competitive 22-year-old driver. “
