F1 legend Alain Prost thinks young star Max Verstappen will be “hard to beat” once he gets a good car.

Verstappen signed a new deal with Red Bull, which will keep him with them until 2023.

Speaking at a conference hosted by Le Parisien, Prost spoke on what he thinks still lacks in Verstappen’s skillset.

“The most complete driver right now is Hamilton, because he has the experience and he is on a dedicated team,” the 64-year-old, who was most successful later-on in his own F1 career, analysed. 

“After, there are the likes of Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc. They’ll be the two biggest threats for Hamilton.

“Verstappen needs to reel himself in a bit. It lacks a bit of serenity, a bit of calmness, to ensure certain overtaking. But when he does and has a good car, he will be hard to beat.”
