Lewis Hamilton Praises Max Verstappen’s Flawless F1 Season

Introduction: Max Verstappen’s Stellar Formula One Season

Max Verstappen’s remarkable Formula One season has earned him praise from fellow driver Lewis Hamilton, who recognizes the Dutchman’s greatness.

Verstappen is on the verge of securing his third consecutive F1 title, cementing his dominance in the sport for the second consecutive year.

Verstappen’s Consistent Dominance

Max Verstappen’s consistent performance and control over the sport have left fans and pundits divided on the extent to which his success is attributed to his exceptional car.

However, Lewis Hamilton has no reservations about including the 26-year-old in the ranks of Formula One’s finest drivers.

In the Company of Legends

Hamilton himself is frequently listed among Formula One’s all-time greats, sharing the spotlight with iconic figures like Ayrton Senna, Juan Manuel Fangio, and Michael Schumacher.

Verstappen’s exceptional season has now earned him a place alongside these legendary names, according to Hamilton’s assessment.

Alonso’s Perspective on the GOAT Debate

Interestingly, when discussing Max Verstappen’s place in the “Greatest of All-Time” (GOAT) debate, former teammate Fernando Alonso omitted mentioning his seven-time world champion colleague, Lewis Hamilton.

This omission has sparked debate and raised questions about the criteria for determining the greatest in Formula One.

In conclusion, Max Verstappen’s exceptional season and his recognition by Lewis Hamilton as one of F1’s best drivers highlight the ongoing discussions and debates surrounding the sport’s greatest drivers and their legacies.

“I wouldn’t rank him because ranking people is an opinion-based thing,” he told reporters.
“But he has earned his position, and he has done an amazing job with the package he has. Him and the team have been phenomenal and faultless this year.

“They have raised the bar and as a team we have to look at that, and look at the areas where we can be better and match that and compete.
“I do hope at some stage we can fight them and have them defending, but they should enjoy the moment because they have worked for it.”

“I’ve only been wheel-to-wheel with Michael, but [comparable] with Michael? Maybe, yes,” the Spaniard stated.
“And for the next few years he will keep adding championships so we will compare him with Michael even closer in the future.”

I live in the moment and I want to achieve more.

Verstappen himself has insisted he will enjoy his success while it lasts, with his third crown guaranteed if he finishes inside the top six of Saturday’s sprint race at Losail Circuit.
“Michael’s achievements were incredible,” said Verstappen.

“But when he was achieving these kind of things it was seen as normal because it was an amazing driver with an amazing team and everything came together. Maybe people got bored of it? But it was incredible to have achieved those kind of things.

“I don’t think about reaching seven. We will see year-by-year what happens, but I am very proud. I live in the moment and I want to achieve more.

“I know when I stop racing I will be able to look back and I will be able to appreciate it more but it wasn’t something I ever thought was achievable when I was a little kid.”
