Max Verstappen ‘deserves’ to win the F1 world title ahead of Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, says Fernando Alonso as he insists Red Bull racer has been ‘driving one step ahead of everyone’ this term

Fernando Alonso has revved up the rivalry with his old-time foe Lewis Hamilton by declaring that Max Verstappen deserves to be crowned this year’s F1 world champion instead of him. Mercedes I think are performing a little bit more now and they have won a couple of races since but Max is driving, in my opinion, one step ahead of all of us and we saw the lap in Jeddah until he touched the wall in the last corner. ‘That lap was coming from Max, not the Red Bull I think, but that’s my opinion. Mercedes, they deserve the constructors’ championship because I think their car is superior and Max maybe overall in the year was driving one step ahead of everyone. ‘It’s not that I support Max, I think he deserves it or he was driving, in my opinion as I said, everyone has a different opinion, I think he was driving that Red Bull to another level.
