    Red Bull’s Max Verstappen is one of the most talented drivers of the current era. As such, it can come as a bit of a surprise that he has never won a title in the junior open wheel categories of F1 such as F2 and F3. This is partly because he was fast-tracked into F1 at a very young age. Some have suggested that this lack of experience when it comes to being in a title fight could be a serious detriment to Max. Max has now responded while appearing in an interview for Autosport

    I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World:
    Is Max Verstappen Ready For Title Fight Despite Lack Of Experience?
    Max began by explaining how he understands the basic essence of being in the fight for a world title in racing
    “You don't have to win every fight or every race. But that's the nature of it. Just because I haven't won a title doesn't mean I don't understand”
    He then explained how he only had one shot at winning the F3 title and even though he did not succeed, the experience was good enough
    “I've only had one try to win the Formula 3 title. Yeah, it didn't work out. Once you've been in that position of having a car to win titles in, it makes things a lot easier”
    He summed up his words by looking at the pressure of being in the title picture and why it is good to have that pressure
    “Of course, there is this pressure to win a title because you fight with other drivers. But I think it's better to be in a situation like that than not because I think that then I can be even better. Because it's much nicer and you can deal with it better”

    McLaren CEO Zak Brown has pointed out how if he were “Mercedes” the combination of Max Verstappen and George Russell would be “a pretty killer line-up for the next five years”
    Meanwhile, Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff reiterated that they “don’t want to leave it until January to confirm the two drivers”
    “During the summer”, that “is when it should happen. Also, to give the driver peace of mind, or be able to concentrate on the job” added Wolff
    Alpine's new Racing Director Davide Brivio has revealed that he “was always interested in trying to understand how F1 works” which led to him leaving MotoGP and joining F1
    He added that “it’s been very interesting so far, so many things to discover and to get used to it”. He hopes soon, he’ll “be able to give” his “contribution and” his “help”
    Red Bull team principal Christian Horner feels that “everyone just wants clarity” with regards to track limits
    He added that “the worst thing for everyone is if you can use it in one instance, but not in another”
    James Allison who recently stepped down from his role as Mercedes’ technical director to become their new Chief Technical Officer firmly believes “that people have a shelf life in senior roles in this sport”
    He added that he has “chosen to step away from” his “role as Technical Director in order to pass on the baton at the right time for the organization and” himself
    He also stated that “it is a great pleasure to be succeeded by Mike [Elliott], an exceptional engineer in a tremendously strong group of senior leaders in the team”
    Mike Eliott, meanwhile, feels that these “are big shoes to fill and” he’s “delighted that” they “will be able to call on” Allison’s “expertise in his new role as CTO”
    Red Bull’s reserve driver Alex Albon feels that a full-time return to F1 will depend on “how it works with BoP [in the DTM]”
    “Of course”, his “role also in the reserve driver, simulator duties and testing, that is a much bigger role [in getting back to F1]” added Albon
    Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko has confirmed that when his driver Sergio “Perez had free air, he was just as fast as” teammate Max “Verstappen” during the Bahrain GP
    Piero Ferrari, son of Enzo Ferrari and vice-president of Ferrari hopes “to win at least one Grand Prix this season” and he doesn't think he’s “asking too much”
    He also pointed out that “in 2021 it will be seventy years since” they “first won a Grand Prix. It was 1951 and Argentine Froilan Gonzalez triumphed at Silverstone”
    He also reiterated that “every one of” them “in Ferrari is always under the microscope, it's part of” their “DNA”
    McLaren’s Lando Norris feels that they “are not far behind Mercedes and Red Bull compared to last season”
    He thinks they've “closed the gap a little bit and hopefully, at some circuits”, they “can close the gap even more”
    He added that “it's hard to say if” they “are easily the best of the rest” and feels that the “positions are going to change between” them, “Ferrari and AlphaTauri”

    Is Verstappen ready to fight for the title?

Is he ready? Yes. Does he have a car to get it? No. Max is very talented and could go for the title but winning against a team that has the best car and the best driver is not something that Red Bull can do just yet. The pieces are just not there. Mercedes has the legs to play the long game and Red Bull is too focused on the sprint.

For a long time the star Drivers of Redbull and Mercedes are a match (Verstappen and Hamilton) The areas of unequal rivalry were in the 2nd driver and engine where RedBull was deficient. 2021 Redbull has matched if not exceeded in those areas. Without a doubt 2021 is a year where Red Bull can clearly challenge in ALL areas.

@sphere 528 That's not entirely true. When they had a new update Max would get it first, but the race after that if the update performed well, Albon or Gasly would get it too. So out of the 20 or so races they only had about 4-6 races where the cars were not equal.

@sphere 528 I don't know if Checo is that much better than Gasly. I do believe he's better than Albon. Also don't be mistaken, the rear of this years car seems much more stable which in my eyes means that Gasly and Albon would have been closer to max in this car than the twitchy 2019/2020 cars. We will see how Checo fares.

These articles are just click bait, it is more then obvious to even the dumbest f1 fan that Max is a F1 title contender in the right car. He has matured so much over the last few years and has become not only an amazing racer but also a racer who can deal with shit not going his way. He is a million miles from the Max that fronted up to Ocon in 2019, as much as I love Lewis and Riccardo I can't wait to see Max winning

Verstappen has enough title fights in karting. He is more than used to battle for it from a young age. Was in a mediocre car in F3 and still won most races. Still will be the question if competing for a title in F1 against Hamilton is the same. Stakes are more high.

I'm not convinced experience in a title fight really matters. Every driver has experience in competitive situations - battling their teammate, or for the next spot in the midfield. Max has fought for positions in the standings before, even if he's never been in contention for first. Sure, the stakes are higher when you're fighting for the World Championship, but it's not like the stress or the pressure is unfamiliar. More to the point, Lewis has a mediocre record when actually battling for the win. In F1 he's only been challenged for the title three times - 2007, 2008 and 2016. In 2007 he lost to Kimi, in 2008 he beat Massa, and in 2016 he lost to Rosberg. Every other title he's ever won has been by a country mile, so we can see when Hamilton is genuinely challenged he's an uncharacteristically inconsistent performer. I don't think this actually means anything - I don't think Hamilton actually cracks under pressure, my point is that you can look at experience from any angle, I think it's just something to talk about and doesn't actually have any bearing on who will win come Abu Dhabi.

Thanks for sharing the video and thank you for asking for our opinion. Despite not having a car at the same performance level as Mercedes, Max has, at times, been able to compete with them at the front and challenge for the win. Given a Mercedes or a car of equal performance, I think Max will show that he is indeed ready for a title fight. IMO, if he had cars with the performance he would have been fighting for titles years ago, despite not having the maturity he has now. My 2 Cents Thanks and Cheers

The Difference is plain to see. Lewis is the better driver." Example" Look at turkey 2020, Max made a mistake from the front with a spin in a better car then the Merc. and ended up fifth or sixth. Lewis makes a mistake from the front in a slower car and wins the race. The only way max will win the title this year is if Redbull keeps that car faster then Merc. IF Merc. developes that car and equals that Redbull it is over for max.

Maand geleden
Wietse op de Weegh

You do realise Max's frontwing was a couple degrees off on one side in Turkey which puts a massive imbalance on the car. They only found that out after the race. Still that's the only mistake Max made throughout the season along with binning his car in the warm-up lap on a wet track, luckily the team fixed that for him. Hamilton meanwhile crashed into Albon (again) which is a heavier mistake than a single spin with a faulty frontwing. He also collected a lot of points on his super license and is I believe the driver closest to getting a suspension. If anything the driver that made the least mistakes for the past 1.5 years is Max. Hasn't missed a beat since Canada 2019.

He will need to adopt or keep? a "just win the next race attitude" If he doesn't look at the championship he might get farther into the season before that kind of pressure cooker comes into play. He is very strong at applying pressure but I have seen him ruin starts that I think may have been mini chokes granted he also thinks he can catch anybody so a missed jump isn't that menacing in his view. I have heard more than one champion say over the years while in mid-fight that "We got here by taking it one race at a time and were going to keep doing that" If you can simplify it down to just pounding out fast laps then you might not have to know how to win championships.

@Wietse op de Weegh I completely agree with what you have written. I get very annoyed when I see people say that Max would beat Lewis in the same car when there is absolutely to no proof to back up such a statement. I find it disrespectful that a seven times world champion should be compared to a driver who has won nothing. At the same time those who claim that Max is still the same immature reckless driver that entered the sport are totally wrong. It is clear that he has matured as a driver and a person over the last 2 years and he has great resect for Lewis. I also agree with that Lewis and Max are cut above the rest, apart from Fernando Alonso, who is on their level but not have a competitive car. You're right, that if the Red Bull improvement is real we are in for one hell of a season that will tell us a lot.

Maand geleden
Wietse op de Weegh

@Oliver Apex No I don't, but I also don't have any evidence that Lewis is faster than Max. As far as I can tell the only evidence that we have, is that Max and Lewis are a cut above the rest at this point and very closely matched. I just don't like the Dutch fans that shout Max would easily beat Lewis in the same car, and I hate the Lewis fans that portray Max as an immature child that can't possibly be close to Lewis. Two great drivers and this season might tell us a lot.

Maand geleden

@Wietse op de Weegh We can agree to disagree on who would of won that race had the track limit rule been enforced from the start. But the fundamental question is do you or anyone else have any evidence that Max is faster than Lewis? Because I am certain there is none!

Maand geleden
Wietse op de Weegh
Wietse op de Weegh

@Oliver Apex Max doesn't even have 7 seasons in F1 so he can't have 7 titles. Also this is not prove that Lewis is faster, it's prove the Mercedes was faster and Lewis beat his teammate. If you watch objectively you know there is some controversy over the track extending rules. Either they should have left it alone or be harsher on the penalties, but what they did now is change the rules in the middle of the race. Hamilton gained about 6 second track extending in turn 4 over the course of 29 laps. When Rb told Max to do so too, the FIA intervened and warned both Lewis and Max to not track extend in turn 4. Lewis came on the radio and said: "I've been doing that all race, why change it now?". The overtake Max made was obviously illegal, but Tsunoda made the exact same pass on Ocon and no one bats an eye. If the FIA enforced track limits from the start or didn't change the rules I think Max would have won the race.

The irony here is if Checo has a good year, Max's chances of winning the title improve greatly.

Every point that Mercedes doesn't get will be just as crucial as the points RB can score.

@Kobert Rubica bottas is a mediocre driver who makes a lot of mistakes, if perez can qualify p3 or p4 then he can easily smoke bottas. Bottas does well only when he starts race on p1 or p2. Anything before p6 he makes a lot of mistakes. So if red bull can bring good updates to the car checo can definitely beat bottas and finish p3 on the championship. But I believe Hamilton will win his 8th this year, merc will bring solid updates all year long.

@Kobert Rubica or put pressure on Hamilton. Bottas is often used to put pressure on people who have gotten to second or are battling Hamilton. That was actually the strategy of Mercedes in Bahrain until Mercedes had issues in the pits with Bottas, leaving Max to fight solely against Hamilton instead of having to defend as well.

Maand geleden
Kobert Rubica
Kobert Rubica

I think Perez will be expected to get stuck in very soon. The expectation will not be just to finish p4 like it was for Albon and Gasly. I think Perez will be expected to compete strongly with Bottas, that obviously depends on how strong the Red Bull car is throughout the year.

@alex knight dont forget ,that Max had massive advantage already and safety car came out so he lost advantage once ,second thing is that if you leading race you don't need to push on maximum not even near ,and I believe that radbull didn't tell Max about fastest lap for safety reasons . And 3rd thing is that he brought Lewis 22 seconds ,he could have a coffee and a cigarette while Lewis still didn't cross finish line ....so like that

@Tomas Birkenfeld Max drove better. Took off Lewis wing and yet only 1.4 behind at the pits. Lewis had a bad day but got fastest lap and still leads the championship. Nothing there to change my mind

I don't know, I saw Hamilton lock up and end up next to the track while also track extending from P2 without the leader knowing about it. Not sure how this means Verstappen is under pressure lol. :))

Who came up with a 3 week gap following the first race in the season anyways? Was it the teams' request to make neccessary fine tuning or what? From a viewer's perspective it is mad even so after the race we had.

I think Max has improved a lot compared to his first few seasons. Remember Max's first year, Max was crashing left right and center. He still overdrive sometimes but he is very skilled. This year, he has the car( what we know from the first race). We will see how he deal with the pressure.

He needs to start looking at the season as a whole rather than each race individually, when to fight and when not too. Lewis has known how to do this for years, as early as Malaysia 2017 when he didn't fight Verstappen for the lead and settling for 2nd instead of taking the unnecessary risk

Exactly. That is where Red Bull comes of short. Its Red Bull that needs to bring the fight to Mercedes, not the other way around. To be honest Red Bull needs to evolve and I think Helmut Marko and Christian Horner are holding that back. Zac Brown sees it and that is why McLaren is looking awfully damn good right now. If Red Bull doesn't make some changes in the leadership they are gonna find themselves being the next victim just like Ferrari.

@KosmicHaynerRacingTeam exactly my thoughts! he showed here that he looks beyond a single win and focuses on continuous performance. The calm he shows here indicates that he knows that the car is good enough this year to compete for the championship. The man has 1 goal in his mind and acts accordingly, his maturity hereby really gives me hope that this year there will be a real championship fight .... loving it!

@KosmicHaynerRacingTeam - Couldn't agree more - the manner in which he gave the position back after being instructed to, spoke volumes; once upon a time, he would have spit his dummy out & sulked about it - not now - he's matured beyond all recognition.

Umm, I kinda think he is already doing this. Look at the last race, he didn’t make any unnecessary pass attempts on Hamilton or try to force anything that might crash him out. At that point, I think he decided that even tho he had the better car, he realized that finishing 2nd is much better than DNF trying to do something stupid. So to say he “needs to start...”, he already is doing this and has matured a lot over the last few years.

Honestly thats what i fear for drivers like him and Tsunoda,Winning F2 is a huge experience and F3,they are fast but at times when they will first have the chance to fight,it wont be easy,like this season,and a driver like George or Leclerc would find themselves more at home in a title fight

@E I don't really see how battling for a title in F2 is better 'experience' then driving for a top team for 4 seasons in F1. I mean if it is, then why isn't Verstappen's F3 championship fight equally good experience? Out of Russel, Leclerc and Verstappen, I think it's clear Verstappen is your safest bet to bring the title home. Charles has had a bit of dip in his form in the later half of 2020 and George had two chance to get a point for Williams and he crashed out once in the race, and once under safety car. He blew both of his only oppertunities. Parallel that with Max how found himself in a golden oppertunity to win his first race for RB 4 years earlier and grabbed it with both hands.

@E leclerc didn't have that experience either as he went from sauber to Ferrari after one season and performed well. George has the added benefit of driving a car utterly inferior to everything around him other than his teamate meaning he has had to work harder to both defend and take any positions he gains. His accidents in Williams are generally a good thing as he is more likely to learn without mass criticism that top teams bring. Unless we want to forget "i am stupid" and 'crashstappen' that both Charles and max had to unfairly endure in their first and even second seasons with top teams. Neither max nor leclerc had the experience running up front when they started their Ferrari/redbull engines for the first time but they smashed it. I believe Russell will as well.

You make it sound like it will all come down to one crucial moment in one crucial race against one crucial opponent. Verstappen looks at it from a driver's persepective and knows that he first has to get the car to that moment, then survive that moment and finish better than his opponent, and when he's done, he needs to do that 22 more times. For now, Hammilton has beaten him 1 time so he will be looking to even the score or limit the points gap but he knows that he needs to keep that gap as small as possible, or even take the lead, of he is to beat Hammilton for the world championship. This will not be won nor lost in a single race. And even then, if he get's everything right and makes no mistakes, there are lots of factors, like track conditions, weather, technical difficulties, traffic on track, unpredictable drivers making mistakes and so on that make you lose a race or make your opponent have a serious disadvantage. Mercedes has done it 7 times in a row and it will be a big task to wrestle number 8 from them. Does Verstappen strike you like he's nervous for that task? I cannot say he does. If anything, he looks eager and willing! He has the talent for it and maybe this year, he has the car for it and if he would be able to wrestle it from hamilton on track in a nailbiting head to head competition over 23 races, it would be good for him as a confidence boost and for the outside world to see that, should he win it, he has done it on merrit, skill and determination. I want the midfield to come closer to the big two and I want the big two to be as close in performance as they can be and see the drivers duke it out on ability instead of car performance. If we get a season like that, I must confess that I hardly care for who comes in first, but however it may be, the guy coming in second deserves as much respect as the champion because the will have given us a killer season!!

it's funny how everyone is like look "Hamilton is better then max he beat him in a lesser car" haha are ppl that dumb ? that Mercedes is still a superior car with its sweet sweet German engineering..If anything max looked a better driver and more matured he gave the spot back without hassle or input from GP,max wants a fair fight...I'd love to see Lewis trying to fight for podiums last year like Ricciardo in that shitbox Renault he'd fair not very well and we would all see what a poser he is.

@Josh Gee "Mercedes formula 1 gets its intellectual property from German engineers in Germany.. Mercedes high performance power trains might be located in Brackley and British man might be the "face" of it but I can assure that sweet sweet technology the German's are known for that the English or Japanese can't really replicate,comes from Germany.." It's amazing how some people are not only embarrassingly stupid, they actually seem *proud of it* . Listen, there are two possibilities here. 1. You're a TROLL posting nonsense to rile people off. For your sake I hope this because it's just an act you can drop. 2. You're a GENUINE CRETIN, in which case I pity the poor souls who have to put up with your infantile antics in private. One more misstep from you and I'll have you flagged and reported. Clown.

"Mercedes is still a superior car with its sweet sweet German engineering." Aside from the fact that the car is designed and built in Brackley and the power unit is designed and built in Brixworth, both in England and the team employs no Germans in any role you have a point - pardon my sarcasm. You're as ignorant as you are stupid. "sweet sweet German engineering". The Red Bull is built in Milton Keynes, England. BOTH cars are built in Britain you clown.
