Max Verstappen reveals he will change the number on his car from 33 to ONE if he beats Lewis Hamilton to the F1 drivers’ title this season… as Red Bull star jokes it is a ‘smart’ move because he’ll be able to sell more merchandise!

Red Bull superstar Max Verstappen has confirmed that he will change his F1 driver number from 33 to No 1 if he beats Lewis Hamilton to the title this season. The Dutch driver, 24, is leading Hamilton by 19 points with just four races to go, but is already being asked about changes he would make should he win the championship. The last driver to make the change was Sebastian Vettel in 2014, while Hamilton has always opted to keep his No 44 after his seven winning titles. ‘I mean, I’ve had a bigger lead already in the championship and that disappeared within two race weekends, so we have to again try to do the best we can here, and again after this weekend we will try again to try and win the race. ‘My approach every single weekend is the same, so we will not change that.
