It will be fair to assume that Max Verstappen partied a lot since Abu Dhabi. The Red Bull won his first world championship last week in the most dramatic of fashion. So it was expected that he would reward himself by participating in a party or two.

When he was asked,” You don‘t recognize yourself?” Max replied, “Yeah, exactly.”

Interestingly, he and Helmut Marko were also shown videos of Toto Wolff partying. But both Red Bull men failed to give a comment on Wolff’s party videos.

Gerhard Berger gives his views on Max Verstappen as a driver

As reported by ExpressUK, the Austrian legend mentioned that if Verstappen can up his level one more notch, then we can compare him with Michael Schumacher. Berger stated Verstappen is an extraordinary driver who gets everything out of his car.

“He has to step on the gas a bit more to work his way up into that league. But in terms of talent, of course, he is carved out of that exact stone. He’s an extraordinary racing driver,” said Berger on Max’s talent.

Berger mentioned he has seen the Dutch driver’s talent since Formula 3 days, and he predicts even bigger things for him.

“You’ve already seen that in Formula Three. I’ve already watched him in karting, the guy’s got it and he will be even bigger than he already is. He’s a likable guy, he’s down to earth, he’s cool. I think he’s doing very well, he’s a worthy world champion.” said Gerhard.

Well, it is interesting to compare Verstappen to Schumacher so early in his career. But it would not be a stretch to see Verstappen challenging some of Schumacher’s records in the near future.
