George Russell, the driver for Williams Racing has talked about the potential rivalry between Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc. The match-up seems somewhat odd, however, the young Briton feels these two will be the next big thing in Formula One in the upcoming years.
Max Verstappen is the current season’s Championship title contender alongside Lewis Hamilton, whereas, Charles Leclerc is also expected to finish in the top 5 in the driver’s standings. On one side Verstappen is spearing his side, Red Bull, in a fight against Mercedes for the Constructor’s Championship, and on the other side, Leclerc is pushing the Italian giants against McLaren for a place in top 3.

Talking about a “fierce rivalry” between the two, George Russell conveyed to the Media, “They’re the two I suspect will be at the top in the future. So I look forward to that challenge whether that’s fighting against them in different cars or whether that’s fighting against each other as team mates.”
Max Verstappen is on another level, Russell thinks
The 23-year-old Englishman further asserted on the Red Bull prodigy, “Max in this past year and a half, two years, has really come into another level, to be honest. I think that has been a factor of firstly being an incredible driver, but being in the same team, just that consistency is something that just naturally comes along.”
Stating facts about Charles, George continued, “Charles is only in his third season now with Ferrari, I still think it takes a bit of time for all of these small updates to be directed in a way that will suit you personally as a driver. But they’re both absolutely incredible drivers and they’re going to be able top of this for the coming 10 years.”

Adding on, Max clinched the recently concluded Italian Grand Prix title and currently stands at P2 with 43 in driver’s standings just 1 point behind Lewis Hamilton. However, Charles is at P4 with 20 points. It’ll be interesting to see how this duo turns up the heat in the upcoming races this season.
