Verstappen arrived as F1 driver: He is now complete

For Max Verstappen it was almost impossible to seriously attack Mercedes last weekend on the Red bull Ring. Still he impressed with his way of driving, because he was the only one who could even stay nearby.

Moreover, the driver of Red Bull Racing made no mistakes at all. Not even in the fight with Valtteri Bottas. It all looked very mature. That's also what former F1 driver Vitantonio Liuzzi thinks. He dares to say that the young Dutchman is entering a new phase of his career.

Albon not yet as far as Verstappen

Verstappen is no longer the young talent who occasionally takes too much risk, but according to Liuzzi he has really arrived as a Formula 1 driver. "Mad Max is now a complete driver", he comments in Autosprint.

This is in contrast to his team mate Alexander Albon, who is still a growing talent in the eyes of the Italian, even though the Thai is a year older than Verstappen. Luizzi is a bit less strict for Albon than some other analysts last weekend. He's a bit short on speed, but has proven himself as a second driver at Red Bull Racing, says Liuzzi.
