Jenson Button believes Verstappen is the fastest to ever drive in F1

Former F1 champion Jenson Button believes that Max Verstappen is the fastest to have ever driven in the sport. The Dutchman has made a real impact this season, winning two races and currently sits joint-fourth in the drivers' standings on 212 points.

The 22-year-old is chasing a third-place finish in the drivers' standings and is currently just 9 points behind Charles Leclerc with four races remaining.

 "Before this season Max Verstappen committed more errors, it was normal since it is young, but now is doing a fantastic job. I have a very special talent, " Button told Talksport.

 "I think Verstappen is the fastest driver who has ever driven a Formula 1, I believe it. I think it's incredibly fast, "

 He recorded a DNF at the Japanese Grand Prix so will be looking for better when the racing returns in Mexico next weekend.
