Former Formula 1 driver, Christijan Albers has spoken out on Max Verstappen and said that “Lewis Hamilton would never agree to Verstappen driving next to him.”
Verstappen has grown increasingly frustrated with his current team after being plagued by mechanical issues in the last two races, however, a move for the 22-year-old is unlikely as the only step up would be joining Mercedes.
“Even if it was available [the Mercedes seat], I can already tell that Lewis Hamilton would never agree to Max Verstappen driving next to him,” Albers said on De Telegraaf podcast.
“I have to say that he has made the best choice with Red Bull because it is a team that continues to fight and fight,” he added.
“You saw last year that they were constantly coming up with those updates, they don’t give up easily, it’s really a fighting team. You can see that with the pit stops, they keep fighting, fighting, they want to be the best.
“I personally think he’s in the best place there. There is no other option, where do you want to go? Have you seen how big the gap is from Red Bull to the rest?”
