Formula 1 is experiencing an exciting top season in which Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen compete for the world title. Mario Andretti hopes that the Dutchman will win and praises the Red Bull driver.
Andretti became world champion in Formula 1 in 1978 and the 81-year-old American still enjoys following Formula 1, especially this season. “I still like to watch, especially this season. It is finally unpredictable. There is more than one main character this year. A lot is happening and it is very exciting in the front. Let’s be honest: Verstappen puts the fire to Hamilton until the end,” he tells in the F1 Nation podcast.
Praise for Verstappen
For Andretti it is clear who should become world champion. “I would like to see Verstappen become a champion because he has not yet become a champion. From a fan’s point of view it is always nice to see a new champion being crowned,” he says. “Max has shown very special things in Formula 1 from the start. He is an important force to be reckoned with wherever you go. That is the quality of a champion, however you look at it.” the American. “It really is a feast. Max is the founder of this exciting season, thanks to him everyone is on the edge of their seat.”
