F1 icon tells Verstappen: “Easier to win than in my time; I had 65 races a year"

Stewart competed in Formula 1 for nine seasons, winning three championships in the 1960s and 70s. Verstappen is on track to win his third consecutive championship this year, but Stewart believes that today’s F1 is easier to conquer due to the higher number of races.
