Nico Rosberg compares Max Verstappen to Senna, Schumacher and Hamilton!

2016 F1 world champion Nico Rosberg has compared Red Bull star Max Verstappen to legends of F1, including Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton.

Verstappen has gone from strength to strength this season, finishing in the top five at every event, winning twice recently, in Austria and Germany, along with taking his first pole position in Hungary.

The Dutch youngster has taken on Hamilton in recent weeks and has been subject to much praise from fans and journalists alike.

Rosberg said in one of his YouTube vlogs: "Max is a natural talent, an incredible natural talent. On a par with Senna, Hamilton and definitely the greatest talent in years."

Rosberg adds that Verstappen has the confidence required to be dominant in the sport, adding: "All major drivers had that. Schumacher had it, Senna had it. They all had a confidence that I unfortunately did not have to that extent. I think Max is overflowing with confidence."
