Former world champion Nico Rosberg has knocked down suggestions Max Verstappen is a better driver than Lewis Hamilton.
Rosberg claimed Hamilton will finish as Formula One’s greatest of all time.
He said: “Max is the one guy in F1 who is on a similar level to Lewis. He has that very rare exceptional talent that Lewis has – a once-in-a-generation talent – and if he has the right car, there is no question he will be a contender for the championship this season.
“But you cannot say that Max is a better driver than Lewis. Lewis is going on to become the best of all time so you cannot say that at all. Lewis is the absolute favourite to win the championship – but I have really high hopes that we can be in for a thrilling season.
“I am confident and optimistic that Red Bull and Ferrari can up their game and be on a level playing field with Mercedes.”
