Verstappen: With Mercedes, most F1 racers would win the title thumbnail

Max Verstappen is convinced that with the dominant Mercedes car, most F1 racers would be able to win the Formula One World Championship.

Verstappen once again reiterated his belief that Lewis Hamilton had not yet felt the right pressure within his team, as in his opinion the current world champion did not yet have a serious team rival.

The Red Bull racer is convinced that the British advantage in recent years is solely due to the excellent Mercedes car and lack of competition within the team.

“Other Formula One racers are just as good as Hamilton. The fact is that I would not have achieved all these successes without a great car and unconditional support from the team. I think a Mercedes title would win at least 60% of all Formula 1 racers. It's a very good racer for sure, but I don't think it's invincible. He has never had a serious team-mate, which he has used very well in his career. “
