Eddie Jordan thinks that Hamilton is too old to go head-to-head with Max

All true F1 fans will agree on one thing: They fantasized about Verstappen and Hamilton being part of the same theme. The question is, what would it even look like? Former F1 team boss Eddie Jordan just talked about such an option in an interview for the Formula For Success podcast.

The host of the podcast, David Coulthard, asked Jordan a question; What do you think right now that Lewis is too old to go head-to-head with Max? “Yes. I think he will still win grands prix but he will need certain things to fall in place with him.

Max is at the sweet spot for age, experience, belief, knowledge, the people he’s been around with the team and I think in the same car, right at this moment as we speak with the same ages it has to be Max”. - Jordan said, as quoted by crash.net

David Coulthard and his view

David Coulthard seems to have a somewhat different opinion, he believes that the two of them would really make a real spectacle if they were part of the same team.

“I still reckon Lewis has got it. If they were in the same team there would be some contact. It would be Prost-Senna”. Coulthard further explained his statement; “Look, I’ve got to say that Max has got to have the edge.

Lewis would appear to be a busy boy off the track with all of his passions. And as we know, Max when he is off track is very much focused on his simulator, e-gaming team and he’s all totally immersed with anything to do with driving”.

We are aware that such an option is almost unrealistic to happen. Still, it would be great to see Hamilton and Max in the same team. Verstappen seems like someone who could break Hamilton's records in the future. However, we have to be patient and watch what happens.
