F1 team boss Eddie Jordan had an interesting interview with the Formula For Success podcast. Throughout the conversation, it was clear that the focus was mainly on Max Verstappen, the Dutchman who is performing spectacularly this season.
The question that many people wonder is how far Max can go, and whether he will be able to become a record holder in the future? Eddie Jordan obviously has a great deal of faith in Max Verstappen. As far as he is concerned, Max has the potential to become the greatest of all time.
"Max Verstappen will emerge over time to be the greatest driver of all time. He’s that good. I don’t like the last couple of races, I have to tell you. I’m bored to death with him. He’s just that good. He’s making it boring, more so than the Schumacher era.
”- he said, as quoted by crash.net
Christian Horner, Team Principal of the Red Bull Formula One team, on the other hand, does not want to create too much euphoria this early. Although it is almost certain that Red Bull will win the title again, Horner calls for caution and emphasizes that there is still a lot of time before that.
The Red Bull team wants to be careful. The fact that they are favorites at the moment is not of any benefit to them at this time. “We just take things one race at a time, and I don’t think you let your mind drift too far into the future – so many things can go wrong,” Horner said.
“Can we? Yes. Will we? Who knows? Because there’s so many variables in this game and we’re just taking things one race at a time. The team are doing an incredible job, Max is driving out of his skin as well at the moment, so just collectively the group are doing a tremendous job."
