Villeneuve: Verstappen wants Hamilton as next Red Bull F1 team-mate

Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton have had a highly publicized rivalry in Formula 1, especially in 2021 as they fought for the drivers’ championship. They had notable clashes at Silverstone, Interlagos, Monza, and Jeddah, and the season finale in Abu Dhabi was controversial due to the mishandling of a late safety car procedure by the FIA. Despite their heated past, former F1 champion Jacques Villeneuve believes Verstappen wants Hamilton as his Red Bull teammate to prove that he can beat the seven-time champion. However, it’s uncertain whether Red Bull would want that. Verstappen’s dominance in recent races has led to some complaints, but Villeneuve argues that people should be happy and proud of his talent, as he is currently the best driver in the sport. Villeneuve also points out that Formula 1 is incredibly tight and competitive, with small gaps between the top competitors, making it the best it has ever been. Hamilton is expected to continue with Mercedes in the future, given his loyalty to the team.
