While Horner may have a point it isn’t a comparison that rings true as Mercedes have two drivers who have proven class in Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.
His comments come off the back of two years with Pierre Gasly and Alex Albon as Verstappen’s team-mates at Red Bull.
Gasly and Albon were two inexperienced drivers who were arguably put in the same position as some of Michael Schumacher’s team-mates at Ferrari.
The German was always favoured by the Italian team, similar to how Verstappen is viewed by many at Red Bull.
Only this year will we see a true reflection of just how quick the Dutchman is when he goes up against Sergio Perez who is in the prime of his career.
