Do you really think Verstappen is heir to Senna's mantle or are you just
I think it is far too early to say but I certainly wouldn’t rule it out.
Max seems to me to have much the same sort of ability that Senna had. Both
went through a period of supreme self-confidence, which was shattered when
they came up against drivers who could beat them. The result, for both of
them, was that they began to try too hard, overdrive and often crash. Senna
had the advantage that he could get that phase out of the way while he was
still in F3 whereas Verstappen, because he was promoted so rapidly, has had
to do it in the full glare of international scrutiny.
