Nico Rosberg has compared the talents of Max Verstappen to Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher, and Ayrton Senna.
“At the moment Max Verstappen is the best F1 driver out there,” the former world champion said in his popular YouTube channel.
“Even slightly better than Lewis Hamilton, just recently overtaking him. He’s been doing an unbelievable job.”
“The first point: natural talent. Unbelievable natural talent. On a line with Senna, Hamilton, one of the absolute one-in-10-years natural talents.”
“Schumacher had it, Senna had it. They all had that steely self-confidence which I unfortunately didn’t have to that extent. I think he’s got that in bucket loads.”
