Jos Verstappen: Max will be a ‘hero’ in Japan

Max Verstappen’s father thinks the on-form Red Bull driver has rattled reigning five time world champion and 2019 championship leader Lewis Hamilton.

“When you see what kind of races Max has been driving, I don’t think you can be surprised,” Jos Verstappen

He thinks Hamilton and Mercedes are clearly coming under pressure from Max.

“You can tell by the things Hamilton has been saying,”

“Why would he respond to rumours? He says that the Honda engine is better than Mercedes now, but I don’t think that’s the case on the straights.”

Jos thinks his son will be a “hero” in Japan.

“What happened with Senna may now happen with Max. And that’s only good,” Jos Verstappen.
