Eddie Jordan predicts Max Verstappen could well surpass the seven world titles won by Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher. The former Formula One team boss sees Verstappen taking as many as 10 world titles to his name if he continues like this.

"If everything stays well with Max, and I’m hoping that it will, mentally and physically and everything to do with the car, Max is gonna hit 10 world championships," Jordan stated in the Formula for Success podcast, which he co-presents with David Coulthard.

"Because he’s that young and that good. How fast is he? He’s just ridiculous," he continues. The founder and former Jordan Grand Prix team boss therefore thinks Lewis Hamilton needs to hurry up if he wants to get that coveted eighth world title to his name yet. "I think Lewis needs to get on his bike and hurry up and get number eight because it’s soon to be passed up by Max," Jordan concludes.

Lewis Hamilton is currently fifth in the championship, with an equal number of points to Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz. For the time being, 2023 also does not appear to be the year in which the Mercedes driver can fully take the record for most world titles, which he currently shares with Michael Schumacher. However, team boss Toto Wolff recently stated that a change in direction is coming, which he hopes will make the W14 more competitive.
