Two drivers at entirely different points in their careers and completely different points in their lives. However, fighting each other in the twist of fate whilst maintaining equal and mutual respect for each other. The sport hardly ever sees a relationship like the one Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso have. The oldest driver on the grid has created a bond with the legend of the next generation. These aren’t just assumptions with their comments full of respect towards each other. Their conduct towards each other, despite being equally fierce competitors on the grid, also showcases the brewing bromance. Well, as of the Monaco GP post-qualifying press conference, it is brewed and Verstappen has fulfilled the conditions!
