Jenson Button Knows why Red Bull Will not Let Go Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen will drive for Red Bull in 2021.

Jenson Button, the former Formula One driver is of the opinion that Red Bull team will not let Max Verstappen go out of Milton Keynes. Verstappen being an exciting prospect for the Bulls, Button thinks the team will do anything to keep him at Red Bull.

Max, who is a title contender this season alongside seven times world champion Lewis Hamilton has shone quite bright and has given Red Bull a much needed impetus in their fight to win the Constructor’s Championship.

 

Jenson, in an interview with Sky F1 during the Spanish Grand Prix talked about the duel between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. The 2009 Formula One Champion conveyed, “The most complete driver out there in terms of experience and the way they go about their racing is Lewis Hamilton. But for raw talent, I think it has to be Max. So Red Bull are not going to want to let him go.”

Verstappen being only 23 years old surprised many as he took on Lewis Hamilton years after years. As Red Bull upgraded their car, this is the first time Max is actually considered to be a title favourite apart from Hamilton.

“He is immensely talented. For raw talent, he’s probably the most talented… I know a lot of people won’t agree with me on that.”

The driver who joined the Milton Keynes based team after replacing Daniil Kvyat back in 2016 is at P2 with 80 points after the conclusion of four races. Max, trails leader Hamilton by 14 points and will look forward to topple the reigning champions by the fews races up next to impress his team even more.
