F1 boss makes DECISIVE pick in Hamilton vs Verstappen debate

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has picked his side in the Max Verstappen vs Lewis Hamilton debate in a recent TV appearance.

The two world champions enjoyed an immense title battle in 2021 with Verstappen eventually winning out on the final lap in Abu Dhabi to take his first world title.

The Dutchman has since claimed a second successive title and looks set up to take his third in 2023 thanks to the dominance of Red Bull’s RB19 car.

Hamilton, meanwhile, is tied with Michael Schumacher on seven world titles and is still hoping to move clear at the top of the record books before retiring from the sport.

“Max.”

Steiner was then pressed as to why he’d selected Verstappen, to which he responded: “He’s just on a roll in the moment.

“He cannot do anything wrong, in my opinion. Everything what he does sticks, you know, so you want to go with the guy that has got the luck attached to him.”
