Sebastian Vettel is resolute in emphasizing the significance of Max Verstappen’s remarkable accomplishments in recent years.
The four-time world champion, also a former Red Bull driver has urged that Red Bull’s supremacy should not diminish the significance of Verstappen’s achievements.
The Dutch prodigy is making remarkable strides towards securing his third consecutive Drivers’ title. Having triumphed in eight out of ten races, he has amassed an impressive 99-point lead in the driver’s championship.
Verstappen’s awe-inspiring performance this season serves as a seamless continuation of his exceptional form from the previous year.
Barely putting a foot wrong, the Red Bull driver astoundingly shattered the record for the highest number of race victories in a single season, reaching an impressive 15 wins.
Considering the sheer dominance of the RB19, there is a palpable anticipation that this record may be challenged yet again.
“You have to give him credit, he is performing fantastic. He is incredibly talented and makes no mistakes,” four-time champion Vettel told media at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
“As soon as you drive at the front because you are doing well, people are quick to say that it is boring and that you win ‘easily.’
“But there is much more at play than just lap times. I’m sure Lewis Hamilton never had it easy during his dominant years, just as, for example, Michael Schumacher, Mika Hakkinen and myself never had it easy.
“It is an incredible achievement to conceive and build a car that can beat the competition in every race weekend.
“The fact that Red Bull does well every weekend is due to perfection, consistency and the qualities of the team.”
An exciting moment awaits Max Verstappen at the Hungarian Grand Prix as he stands on the verge of history.
Should the talented Red Bull driver secure a victory from pole position, he will achieve a remarkable feat by matching Michael Schumacher’s record of six wins from six pole positions.
