Mercedes reserve says Verstappen can match Hamilton

Max Verstappen has the potential to take on Lewis Hamilton at the very top of Formula 1. That is the view of Nyck de Vries, a Dutchman who drives for Mercedes’ works Formula E team. “I am concentrating on my job in Formula E but I’m very happy and grateful for that,” de Vries is quoted by the Dutch website racingnews365. However, the Dutchman thinks Mercedes’ Hamilton might be seriously challenged by the potential of his countryman Verstappen in 2021 and beyond. “In our sport, but especially in Formula 1, the equipment you have is of course a big factor,” de Vries said.
