Jacques Villeneuve Claims Lewis Hamilton Lacks Verstappen’s Consistency
Jacques Villeneuve, the 1997 Formula 1 World Champion, has made a surprising claim, stating that Lewis Hamilton has “always” lacked the consistency of Max Verstappen, even during Hamilton’s peak years with Mercedes.
Verstappen secured his fifth consecutive victory in the Austrian Grand Prix, extending Red Bull’s winning streak in 2023 to nine races. He now holds an 80-point lead over his teammate Sergio Perez in the Drivers’ Championship.
With this latest triumph, Verstappen has won 32 out of the last 53 races, dating back to his title-winning season in 2021. In contrast, Hamilton, who dominated F1 with Mercedes from 2014 to 2020, is still without a win since the penultimate round of the 2021 season.
