Remark of the day

With yet one more pole place for Max Verstappen, @david-br believes the world champion is in a unique league to anybody else on the grid in the intervening time…

Verstappen is changing into Ferrari/Schumacher-level untouchable, so manner forward, automobile and driver, that it’s really tough to gauge something. A separate method nearly. In the meantime everybody else appear more and more bunched up. However till Mercedes can introduce a brand new chassis subsequent yr (and replica that actually fairly stunningly stunning Purple Bull flooring), I can’t think about them bothering Verstappen on the time sheets.
