Verstappen has a super talent, but was also lucky

After statements by former Formula 1 driver Marc Surer about his doubts about the talent of Mick Schumacher, Mick's uncle Ralf is forced to react. At Sport1.de he complains and discusses being a young talent in the current Formula 1.

"He shouldn't have the talent? How should one judge that? One cannot speak of a lack of talent. I find the statement absolutely superfluous", begins an irritated Schumacher. "Every time he gets into a new category, he was cautious at the beginning, learned more and at the end of the season he struck out. That's exactly what he is now doing again in Formula 2 - and so he is naturally recommended for a Formula 1 contract.", he praises his nephew.

Verstappen was lucky

However, Schumacher believes that young drivers do not have an easy time of it these days. Not least because of the financial burden young talents have to bear these days. "Money goes against talent. No matter how talented someone is, if he or she can hardly afford tests, he or she can still be talented. He will lose to the one who has more money.” Finally, the former Formula 1 driver also goes into Max Verstappen. "Max Verstappen was lucky. He has a super talent, but it has also been encouraged."
