Thank God For Max Verstappen


In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and I tell you why young Max is exactly what Formula 1 needs right now and how ‘when’ is more interesting than ‘which’ when it comes to discussing his move to a top team. I strongly believe that Ferrari should’ve done the unthinkable and signed on the young prodigy to replace the ageing and error-prone Kimi Raikkonen.
We also speculate over Hamilton’s retirement, why he wants to reunite with Nicole Sherzinger, Red Bull’s ingenious engine solution and why Williams need to start planning Massa’s retirement party already. Tune in! (Season 2015, Episode 38)

    Fun to listen to you. To say Lewis is winning because of his car is silly. He was faster than Alonso as a rookie! So soon we forget. Max is exciting but reckless and may not be the best on his current team. Magnussen or maybe Button should be on Haas. Grosjean is fast but acts like all he thinks about is being somewhere else.

      Max is reckless?? May not be the best on his current team?? much ignorance in one post. Max Verstappen is the most exciting driver since Senna. He is that one guy who comes around once in a lifetime and I’m pretty sure he will become a multiple world champion within this great sport. His great talent is very obvious.
      And his teammate? Carlos is a great driver with a great future ahead in F1…the only bad luck he really had this year, is becoming the teammate of F1’s next legend

      1. Kunal Shah says:

        Hola! Yes, rightly said, Carlos’s biggest hurdle is that he’s Max’s team-mate. I am in fact quite excited to see how both their careers pan out. They will be battling tooth and nail for years to come.
        And I disagree that Max is reckless!

      Thanks JCR for your good words on my podcast. Do subscribe to us on iTunes / Google Play for frequent updates. Lewis’s talent is obvious, but so is the superiority of his car, let’s admit.
      I don’t think too highly of Magnussen yet, and as for Button, I am excited to see him in the RoC. He will get to win something, finally!

      1. JCR says:

        Senna had a dominate car with McLaren for a few years too. Lewis won 21 times without Mercedes. Good to hear from you.

      And Jenson Button outscored Hamilton in the time they were together at McLaren, So, I guess Jenson is faster/better than HAM according to your reasoning?

            22 Outscored LEWIS In 2011.
            LEWIS Outscored 22 In 2010 And 2012.
            Your Bias Is As Bad As Anyone Elses.

            Last Time I Checked, Points Surplus In One Year Do Not Overflow To The Year Next.
