Daniel Ricciardo believes that if it’s Max Verstappen, not Lewis Hamilton, who will win this year’s F1 World Champion, it will be a particularly good sight for F1 fans.
The 2021 season, which is a one-on-one battle between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, is nearing the end of the season, and in the F1 paddock, friends and drivers are being asked who will be the F1 World Champion.
The question was also asked by McLaren F1 Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo.
Lando Norris says Max Verstappen is a good friend, but Lewis Hamilton is also from the UK.
“As an Englishman, of course I want to support Lewis, but I’m on good terms with Max. It’s the result of everyone doing their best to become the champion in the end. They’re doing really well throughout the season and it’s great. The driver will win! “
Daniel Ricciardo, Max Verstappen’s teammate during the Red Bull era, thinks the same, but fans want to see Verstappen become an F1 champion.
“I spend a lot of time with Max on the move, but as Rand says, the best drivers will win. I’m working that way too.”
“I think the rivalry between Max and Lewis this year is really great from a fan’s point of view. From that point of view, I think so. At the moment the difference is minimal and in that respect I like it. No”
“Fans want to see a’fresh’face, and probably Max will be the first world title, so it’s a more popular option. It’s going to be new and exciting for everyone. In a way, big. There is an element of standing. “
One of the most important things for Daiel Ricardo is that the fight is decided fairly.
“I’m willing to win the championship in the end, as long as bad luck doesn’t decide the title,” said Daniel Ricciardo.
