Many believe that Max Verstappen will be successful in Brazil and take another victory. The legendary Mika Häkkinen emphasized in a media interview that he believes in two drivers who can stop the Dutchman. "In my opinion there are two drivers who can stop Max Verstappen from winning the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend – Lewis Hamilton or Lando Norris," Hakkinen told Unibet.
Mika Häkkinen is aware of how dominant Max Verstappen has been this season. The Dutchman looks unstoppable, and many already assume what will happen before the race. The race in Mexico showed that Mercedes really has the potential to do great things.
They made great progress, but is it enough to win this time? "Max is going for win number 17 this season but the way Lewis and Lando are driving at the moment I think it’s possible they could cause problems for Red Bull," said Hakkinen.
"I thought both of them drove brilliantly in Mexico, there is a real fire in their driving, and if they can continue that momentum into Interlagos anything can happen."
Mika Häkkinen: It’s incredible to think that Max has won 16 races
Häkkinen is thrilled with Max's accomplishments this season.
What he's achieving this year is truly extraordinary. It's essential to acknowledge the significance of his car, but Max's performance in every race truly underscores his exceptional talent.
"It’s incredible to think that Max has won 16 races – the total number of races which used to make up the entire World Championship back when I was winning my two titles!
. It does not matter whether Max is on pole or, as we saw in Mexico, a lower grid position. The car has the performance to win every time and he knows how to extract it."
