Magnussen’s Disdain for Verstappen’s Racing Style

Max Verstappen is currently dominating in Formula 1 with 17 Grand Prix victories and is comparing himself to the Chicago Bulls, but people are starting to wonder how much longer it can last.

Highlights

‣ Max Verstappen is near perfection in the 2023 Formula 1 season with seventeen Grand Prix victories
‣ The dominance of Verstappen does not have an impact on viewing figures at the moment
‣ Verstappen compares himself to the Chicago Bulls in terms of dominating the sport
‣ Time Magazine questions whether the competition in Formula 1 is currently at the level of Verstappen’s dominance


Max Verstappen’s odds of winning a Formula 1 race are very high, with seventeen Grand Prix victories under his belt and the triple world champion is nearing perfection in the 2023 season. However, despite his enormous dominance, it is not having an impact on the viewing figures at the moment. In the United States, interest in the sport is only growing.

According to Time Magazine, Kevin Magnussen, driver of Haas F1, stated, “I would get bored of it if I was watching.” In response to the criticism, Max Verstappen compared himself to the Chicago Bulls, who dominated the NBA in the 1990s. “If you are a real fan of the sport, you should be able to appreciate a team doing very well.”

Last week, Verstappen took his 52nd career F1 victory in Brazil, winning almost everywhere with his Red Bull. However, Time Magazine raises the question of whether the competition is currently at Verstappen’s level. The Chicago Bulls had wins in the 1990s that only came about at the very last minute, something that is not happening in Verstappen’s case.

Despite the criticism, Verstappen’s fans remain enthusiastic about his performances. But for how long? Time Magazine wonders.”
