F1 Chief compare Verstappen’s Mexican victory to Schumacher Chief compare Verstappen’s Mexican victory to Schumacher

Formula 1 motorsport chief Ross Brawn admitted that he felt a sense of déjà vu as he watched Max Verstappen power to victory at the Mexican Grand Prix. Similarities to Michael Schumacher in his heyday were evident on that day at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. On the opening lap of the Mexico GP, Verstappen muscled his Red Bull to the front of the pack. Going toe-to-toe with Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton in the process. He emerged in the lead ahead of the feuding Ferrari and Mercedes. That was where he stayed all afternoon, unchallenged and in total control. It was a commanding victory, totally dominant and in the end by a huge margin.

Brawn said afterwards, “It was an incredible performance that reminded me of some races by Michael Schumacher. A remarkable achievement. He is only 20 years old, but as a driver, he is maturing incredibly fast.”

The Englishman spent a decade at Schumacher’s side. He watched him evolve through his early years at Benetton to a double F1 World Champion with the team. The pair moved to Ferrari where they rewrote the sport’s history books. They spearheaded the Italian team’s most successful era.

He also observed, “On Saturday he missed his first pole position only because Sebastian Vettel delivered a great lap. On Sunday, Max fought ferociously against his rivals and dared to go that bit further after only a couple of corners.”

“Then [in front] he controlled the situation with a perfect performance. The ease in which he set one fastest lap after another should have please him and his team alike.”
