In a new video from Formula 1, team owners are asked about good and bad qualities in drivers. They also have to choose a third driver, and surprisingly Zak Brown ends up with Max Verstappen.

In a new video from Formula1.com team bosses of all F1 teams are asked about their drivers. They mention good qualities of their drivers, but also qualities which drivers should not have. The team bosses also choose drivers from the past, with names like James Hunt, Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher.

The most interesting part, however, was when the current team bosses had to choose a third driver for their team. Simon Roberts of Williams chooses Lewis Hamilton with his mountain of world titles, and Toto Wolff chooses George Russell. Surprisingly, Russell is also mentioned by Alpine team boss Marcin Budkowski.

Andreas Seidl of McLaren makes a joke of it and opts for Zak Brown. ''He's still frustrated that he never had that chance.'' Brown himself, however, opts for Max Verstappen. ''Probably Max Verstappen. He is aggressive and I used to race with his father. He was also very fast.'' Gunther Steiner closes the row, shooting into laughter after pointing out Lewis Hamilton as the third driver.
