Max Verstappen defeated a ‘fit and hungry’ Lewis Hamilton claims former Red Bull star Mark Webber, who insists drivers of the Dutchman’s calibre only ‘come along once every 10 years’

Former Red Bull driver Mark Webber believes Max Verstappen will take a huge boost from having defeated Lewis Hamilton while the Brit is still at the top of his game. Despite the messy end to the season though, Verstappen excelled throughout the year and Webber believes overcoming a psychological hurdle of taking on Hamilton played a big role in helping the Dutchman land the championship with Red Bull. Webber, who won nine grands prix with Red Bull during his career, believes Verstappen’s emergence has been a big positive for F1 who should now embrace the 24-year-old as he prepares to be the frontman for the sport in the near future.
