Red Bull's Chief Advisor Dr Helmut Marko is convinced that Max Verstappen has already proven with his racing that he can be reasonably compared to the legendary Ayrton Senna.
Verstappen, as the sole racer, broke the Mercedes winning streak and claimed the first victory after returning to Formula One at the Austrian GP in Spielberg Honda.
The Dutchman then went on to celebrate in the German GP race, and Verstappn's form also impressed Helmut Mark.
“Max is a fantastic racer and this year the race is better than ever. When I said that the new Ayrton Senna was coming to Formula 1, I received a lot of criticism, but now nobody criticizes me anymore. Max has proven his form this season to be one of the best. “
