Former Formula 1 driver and SkySports reporter Johnny Herbert thinks that Max Verstappen possesses many similarities to seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher.
"Max Verstappen came into sport and immediately did what he had to do. It was the same with Michael Schumacher. Eddie Jordan can still be hit on the head for losing Schumacher to Benetton after his debut race in 1991.
"Verstappen has just as Schumacher has a great racing brain. He takes his chances when he can. "
Herbert won't be surprised if Verstappen goes to hold several titles in Formula 1, with the remark that he has a good car.
"Max can absolutely be a multiple times champion, but he'll need a good car. His talent doesn't lie. Max just has that little bit extra, a hallmark of great champions.
"I still don't understand why other drivers didn't copy the lines of Max in Brazil. It was so obvious that there was more grip off the racing line but the only driver who made good use of it was Max Verstappen. "
