Who is better?
The former partner of Michael Schumacher on Ferrari stressed that both drivers are the best of today. “Today you have to say that Lewis hamilton he’s probably still the best driver, but Verstappen is definitely the fastest rider what is there at the moment and it is fantastic to see them ”, highlighted the ex-Ferrari driver.
In addition, Irvine was encouraged to compare Verstappen with his former partner, Michael Schumacher. “Verstappen has always been super fast and you can see that he is by far the most dominant team leader on the grid. He has had many different second drivers on the team and none of them have come close to him. So it’s a bit like the effect Michael Schumacher had, “he said.
Finally, Irvine noted that Hamilton has few weak points, which Max must take advantage of to win the title. “Lewis has been outmatched at times by his teammates, so it would have to be said that Verstappen is probably the best talent, although Lewis is a consummate professional and has very few weak points. I think Hamilton is getting old now and his pace is not as good as it used to be, but he is still, as I insist, a consummate professional. “
