David Coulthard: “The Verstappen era may be over after two titles"

Max Verstappen continued his dominance and won another title. Many expect them to continue at the same pace, but David Coulthard warns that things could go in a totally different direction. Given that many high-quality drivers have 'lost' titles because of their car, Coulthard does not rule out the possibility that the same thing could happen again.

“The Verstappen era may be over after two titles, not because he’s not a brilliant driver, but he may not have a title-winning car in the coming seasons. Nobody knows that in advance. Lewis could have been a nine-time instead of a seven-time F1 champion.

At the same time, he has often been in a good car, and someone like [Fernando] Alonso has not. Alonso should have had more than two titles but his choices and the racing gods have put him in the position where he will drive for Aston Martin next year and the chances of him becoming champion are slim,” - David Coulthard said, as quoted by grandprixx247.com.

A race between him and Hamilton could happen next season. Coulthard considers both of them great drivers. He emphasized that they have enormous qualities that should not be debated. He especially respects Verstappen, because he is a person who does not look back at anything, and is only focused on himself.

Just as Lewis doesn’t need nine world titles for me to consider him one of the greatest drivers in the sport, Max is already one of the greats. You would also have to be a f***ing idiot to claim that he only achieved this because he was in a good car.

After all, none of his teammates have been able to measure up to him. Max is a beast on the track, a winning machine who doesn’t give a s*it about what we have to say or what anyone else has to say. He’s unbelievable,” Coulthard concluded.
