“Max is an incredible pilot. I think it’s easy to say that he’s going to be one of the greatest of all time. It even already is, if you stick to what the statistics indicate. He is a double world champion with many victories. He carries even more than Fernando Alonso (32). He is already one of the best in history and he is only beginning”, Rosberg argued in statements to ‘Sky Sports’. “His level of driving is phenomenal and it is great to witness it”, he added.

For the former Mercedes player, not everything was sewing and singing for the Dutchman in the season that has just ended at the Yas Marina circuit. “You have to remember that his car was not much faster than the rest. The Ferrari was the fastest car at the beginning of the season and, still, he achieved an incredible 15 victories. He really destroyed his rivals. If you look at the points he has achieved (454) it doesn’t even seem real. It is, without a doubt, one of the best seasons at the level of driving that we have seen”, he has sentenced.
