ANDhe adviser of Redbull, the austrian Helmut Marko had no doubts when pointing out that the best driver in the history of the team is the current Formula 1 champion, the Dutchman Max Verstappen, leaving aside the four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel; since he managed to end the domain of Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes, who held the crown of the highest category of motor sport since 2014.

Our best driver in team history is Max“Marko said in an interview for the French publication ‘Auto Hebdo’.It is the one that ended Mercedes’ dominance that has lasted since 2014. It’s great to see your pupil beat the seven-time world champion (Lewis Hamilton).”

Helmut recalled the tough training Verstappen has had, who has been trained by his father since he was four years old.

His father, José, began training his son when he was four years old. It was very hard for him, but it worked. Now the whole family is proud of their son. He is only 24 years old and already a champion. Everything else will be just an extra“.

Verstappen has a contract with Red Bull until the 2028 season inside Formula 1.
