Although he may not have had the same success, Max Verstappen is in no way inferior to Lewis Hamilton , thinks Carlos Sainz. "Max is, was and became one of the strongest, if not the strongest, drivers in the field right now," says the Spaniard. "He is very, very, very good."

Sainz should know because he was once Verstappen's team-mate at Toro Rosso before he was pulled up to Red Bull. He didn't see a weakness in him, because the Dutchman is good in many areas. "No matter what you would ask me about, he's extremely competitive or extremely good at it."

And although Verstappen is a tough nut to crack as a team-mate, Sainz was happy to be his stable mate: "I learned a lot and it made me a better driver today," he emphasizes.

"I have only good things to say about him when it comes to driving. And he's a really cool guy," said the McLaren driver. "I'm fine with him."
