Jenson Button shuns Lewis Hamilton and claims the seven-time world champion’s Red Bull rival Max Verstappen is the most talented driver in F1 HISTORY ‘for raw talent’

Jenson Button believes Max Verstappen trumps rival Lewis Hamilton as the best driver based on ‘raw talent’ in Formula One history. However, Button – who won the 2009 world championship with Brawn – believes his former McLaren team-mate does not match up to Red Bull’s Verstappen for raw talent, but conceded Hamilton is a more complete driver. Speaking ahead of last weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix, Button, 41, said: ‘He’s (Verstappen) immensely talented. For raw talent, he’s probably the most talented [in history]. Hamilton and Button meanwhile were team-mates for a few seasons between 2010 and 2012 before the former’s move to Mercedes.
