Max Verstappen told the Dutch media that he might be the world champion once again in the Mercedes.
Lewis Hamilton has had a tough time in the first half, especially in the face of Ferrari, who had a better vehicle this year. However, the Italian team evaluated the mistakes and the events of Sebastian Vettel, and he won his fifth title and Mercedes became the team champion. Mercedes generally focused on Hamilton during the season, while his teammate Valtteri Bottas did not win a single race.
Verstappen, who said recently that most pilots may be champions with Lewis Hamilton's car, loaded on Bottas with a new statement to the Dutch press and said he would be the champion if he were Hamilton.
Verstappen said, "Yes, I could have been a champion in that car.
"Especially when you have a team-mate, not so fast with you ın it gets easier." Hamilton had to fight with Ferrari, so he had to be strong all the time.
When asked to be the champion in 2019, Verstappen said, "The goal of the entire team is the championship. Honda is the same, Red Bull is in 2019 or I don't know if it will be in 2020. I hope this year we will have a chance." he answered.
