Even if a reshuffle on the grid does take place, it may not hamper Verstappen who has still been able to fight his way to the top of the podium when starting down the pecking order at the start line. It has been a quite superb year so far for the Dutchman, who has been likened to F1 great Michael Schumacher by Domenicali.
The F1 boss commented: “He [Verstappen] resembles him [Schumacher] because he focuses on everything he does on the track. He has matured a lot, he has learned to manage his emotions. He is a cannibal, he doesn’t look anyone in the face. And in this he reminds me so much of Michael.”
