Max is the man

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

I en­joyed your Christ­mas edi­tion of

Motorsport News, and par­tic­u­larly your 50 Defin­ing Mo­ments of 2016 ( MN, De­cem­ber 14/21).

I was pleased that you put Max Ver­stap­pen’s ar­rival in the big league in the top three, but I would ar­gue that he should have been at the very top of the list.

Of course, Nico Ros­berg’s de­ci­sion to walk away from the sport is dra­matic, but the big story of the next decade of F1 will surely be all about the Fly­ing Dutch­man.

I am also pleased that Red Bull has him un­der lock and key and that means that he will be nowhere near the va­cant Mercedes drive.

I think putting to two top tal­ents in the sport (Lewis Hamil­ton and Max) in the same team would be bad for the future of the sport.

At least with them in dif­fer­ent teams then there will be a bet­ter chance of a proper on-track ri­valry. Roll on 2017! Jason Lowe Via email
