UNITED KINGDOM: In a surprising turn of events, Formula 1 superstar Max Verstappen has expressed openness to a future move to Ferrari, but with one condition: they must provide him with the “fastest car” on the grid.

Max Verstappen, a two-time World Champion, has been the centre of speculation regarding his career path beyond his current Red Bull contract, which expires at the end of the 2028 season.

Red Bull’s recent success has fulfilled Verstappen’s desire to be in the fastest car, and he admits that he is content with his current team.

However, the allure of Ferrari’s illustrious history in Formula 1 has caught his attention. During an interview, Max Verstappen said Ferrari is an amazing team, but he has always told himself that he wants to be in the fastest car.

While Max Verstappen remains committed to his current team, the possibility of a move to Ferrari is not entirely off the table.

Richard Bradley, a former Le Mans LMP2 winner, believes Ferrari could entice Verstappen to join them in the future to solidify his place among the sport’s all-time greats.

Bradley suggests that if Verstappen continues to win titles and faces questions about his status as the greatest of all time, he might follow in the footsteps of legends like Michael Schumacher and take Ferrari from a non-winning position to World Champions.

Bradley highlights that Verstappen’s current achievements lack the defining characteristics of true greats in the sport. Drivers like Schumacher, Ayrton Senna, and Lewis Hamilton have all won championships in substandard cars and elevated their respective manufacturers to new heights.

Max Verstappen, with his undeniable talent and ambitious nature, may seek to prove himself by bringing Ferrari back to the glory they experienced with Schumacher.

As Verstappen continues his meteoric rise in Formula 1, he remains focused on his immediate goals with Red Bull.

However, the desire to leave a lasting legacy and cement his status as one of the all-time greats could eventually lead him to explore new challenges and a different team.

While Verstappen’s potential move to Ferrari is speculative, it adds new excitement and anticipation to the Formula 1 community.

Fans will eagerly follow Verstappen’s journey, waiting to see if Ferrari can meet his demands for the “fastest car” and witness if he can replicate the achievements of past legends.
