Max Verstappen's dominance causes different reactions. Although there are many who think that the Dutchman is probably one of the best in the history of this sport, there is another side that believes that Max is far from F1 legends.

Gerhard Berger, a former F1 driver, commented on Max's dominance in an interview with Kronen Zeitung. Berger believes that Max Verstappen is a much better driver than Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton. Gerhard did not forget the legendary Ayrton Senna, about whom he obviously has a great opinion.

“Verstappen and Senna are unique in the business – they are the two best I have seen in the last 50 years,” he told Kronen Zeitung, as quoted by! Schumacher and Hamilton are also exceptional drivers.

Of course, you should always look at the statistics, they are both fantastic. But Senna died early – and Verstappen is still young”.

Christian Horner: Max Verstappen is simply untouchable

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has encouraged many times what a talent Max Verstappen is.

The best confirmation of that came this season, even though Max won the championship in the previous two seasons as well. This season we are watching a completely different story; His dominance is truly something we haven't seen in a long time.

It is incredible with how much passion and motivation this great Dutchman drives. “Max is in a period of his career where he is just simply untouchable. I don’t think there is any driver on the grid that would be able to achieve what he is doing in that car.

What we are witnessing is a driver that is generational”. The thought of anyone being able to stop him at this point is almost impossible to imagine. Red Bull can be happy to have such a driver in its team. Also, fans of this sport can be happy enjoying the era of this great Dutchman. He has already achieved many records!
