For the last two years, Max Verstappen has been phenomenal for the Red Bull Racing. He has dominated the track with 50 victories since 2021. He has won three driver’s championships and currently leading the table for the fourth one.

The three-time defending champion is currently facing some competitions on track but is still having the charge. However, Verstappen has namedropped several players who he feels can be the next world champions. In a conversation with DAZN Verstappen said that if he would have to bet a dinner for the next driver champion he would bet on Charles Leclerc and others.

He said, “Bet a dinner that this driver will be champion. His name is… Only one, hmm… Charles, yeah. But I can pick many.” On this note Verstappen was asked by the interviewer to name one more and three-time World Champion went with McLaren driver Lando Norris. “Lando,” Verstappen declared.

“We’re struggling a lot”, says Max Verstappen

Speaking further Max Verstappen accepted that Red Bull is facing some challenges on track from various drivers but they are leading the pack. He also revealed that his team is struggling with some kerbs and bumps.

He said, “We’re struggling a lot with the kerbing and the bumps. So, we have an area we can work on and improve the car by quite a big margin if we get that under control. I think that we can solve this without influencing any other part of the car.

“We know that this is a weakness and I also know that we are flat-out working on it to try and fix it because I feel like it’s quite a big performance limitation for us at the moment.”
