QOTD: Will Anyone Unseat Max Verstappen?

by Tim Healey

So, Max Verstappen is returning to Red Bull.

That question is settled.

The next question, then, is can any other driver end his dominance?

The Dutch driver has three world championships, 61 race wins, 106 podiums, and 39 poles in 195 starts. And he's only 26 years old.

Can any other driver stop Verstappen? The emerging Lando Norris? Maybe Lewis Hamilton will get on a late-career run? What about, say, oh, I don't know, Carlos Sainz?

I don't watch F1 a ton, mostly due to time differences and an inability to remember to set the DVR to record. So I am going to turn this one over to you, the Formula 1 fans in the B and B.

You know what to do. Sound off below.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    The next dominant driver/team combo will come just as it has before. I'd say Max has another season, but the rules changes for '26 and whatever driver/team combos that happen to come along with that could start a streak for Lando, Charles or George.

    My sources tell my Hyundai is quietly developing an entry.
  • Bd2 Absolutely not - do not want to support a fascist, totalitarian regime.
  • SCE to AUX The original Capri was beautiful. The abomination from the 90s was no Capri, and neither is this.It looks good, but too similar to a Polestar. And what's with the whacked price?
  • Rover Sig Absolutely not. Ever.
  • EBFlex No. I buy as little Chinese products as possible.
  • John "...often in a state of complete disarray on the roads" What does that mean? Many examples in poor repair? Talk about awful writing.
