Mark Webber says the fight for the 2020 title will pin Lewis Hamilton against Max Verstappen, the former F1 driver dismissing a challenge from Ferrari.
Verstappen won three races last year and finished third in the 2019 drivers’ standings behind a dominant Hamilton and his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.
But a Red Bull Racing RB16 that should be quite competitive in Austria – where Verstappen won last season – and in Hungary could give the Dutchman an edge with which to build his title bid. And that would bode well for the 22-year-old title chances.
Webber sees no point in Alonso returning to F1
“I think it’s between him and Lewis,” Webber told Dutch program Ziggo Sport. “I don’t see anyone else at the party to be honest.
“Ferrari won’t be there this year. I don’t see anyone else that can take it to Lewis. So it has to be Max.”
