Dec.8 - Valentino Rossi says F1 is "crazy" to try to reign in Max Verstappen.

The flamboyant MotoGP rider admits he is a fan of the 20-year-old Red Bull driver.

"Verstappen is the new star of formula one," he told Italian radio station Radio Deejay.

"He is doing really well but they are trying to slow him down, which is crazy," Rossi insisted.

"If I had a say in how formula one is run, I would want 12 Verstappens on the grid," he declared.

"Max is an extraordinary driver. He's young, he makes fun of the system and he overtakes, which are qualities that the public loves.

"Verstappen is like (Johann) Zarco," Rossi said, comparing the Red Bull driver to an exciting MotoGP newcomer.

"Neither of them ever slows down, so you have to make room otherwise there's a danger you will both fall."

  • Jazzi: "... so far in 2018"? What a laugh ?. Its pitiful to see a former world champion, superb driver and thoroughly pleasant chap get treated so shoddily. Respect to the Iceman for maintaining his class and dignity amidst Ferrari's disgraceful practices. They self-destructed last season, poetic justice some may say. If so, the implosion may be even worse this year because Kimi is genuinely competive. He out-qualified Seb in Melbourne, and in the last 2 qualifying sessions, he was only edged off pole by Seb in the final flying rounds of Q3. Yet, he still gets screwed by the Ferrari strategist in the races. Pathetic! View Post
