'Honeymoon with Honda is over, Verstappen wants same weapons as Hamilton'

In 2016 Max Verstappen was given a unique opportunity to join Red Bull Racing as an 18-year-old. It gave him the opportunity to win a race right away. Since then he has been on the hunt for a higher goal: winning the world title.

In that respect, the Dutchman is unlucky to enter Formula 1 in the success period of the most dominant team in the history of the sport. Mercedes breaks all records and the difference with the competition does not diminish over the years.

Hamilton and Verstappen teammates?

Although Verstappen drives for the only team that can make things difficult for Mercedes from time to time this year, Auto Bild thinks that Verstappen is slowly beginning to lose its patience. He wants to beat Hamilton by equal means. According to their sources 'he would rather drive today than tomorrow in the same team as Hamilton'.

In theory this is possible in two ways. Hamilton has not yet signed a contract with Mercedes and could move to Red Bull Racing. Of course it is more obvious that Verstappen would go to Mercedes. For the time being he is under contract with Red Bull, but they know they have to deliver together with Honda.
