Max Verstappen could move to McLaren in 2021, claims former F1 driver Robert Doornbos.

Doornbos reckons Verstappen may jump ship and team up with either Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes or Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.

Nothing will happen in 2020,” Doornbos told Ziggo Sport. “Max can’t go anywhere yet. After that, it will be a difficult choice, because you simply cannot see into the future.

“Max actually has the choice of two other teams, or three if you include McLaren. They’ve done extremely well and can become a serious team when they go to Mercedes engines.

“One thing is for sure and that is that Mercedes will not continue to dominate Formula 1 for another four years.”
