Alonso speaks from personal experience: "Verstappen can't afford to take it easy"

Fernando Alonso believes that the combination of Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing can break many records. The Aston Martin driver is of the opinion that the Dutchman has the opportunity to win many races and secure several championships until the new regulation changes in 2026. However, Alonso also warns his colleague. There are other contenders vying for the championship, so Verstappen must continue to work hard.

Red Bull and Verstappen already seem to be looking forward to the day they become world champions this season. Alonso expects that the collaboration between the Austrian team and Verstappen will continue to prove a winning combination in the future. "Until the regulations change in 2026, Red Bull will be fighting for the titles, so there is a good chance that Max will keep winning," the Spaniard is quoted by SoyMotor. "He is young, the calendar is longer than ever, and with 24 opportunities to win each year, he can break records."

Nevertheless, the current situation is not a guarantee for success. Despite the fact that nothing or no one can currently stop Verstappen, it doesn't mean that it will always be the case in the future. Alonso knows from personal experience that Verstappen cannot afford to take it easy. "There are no guarantees. When I won two championships, I thought I would win a few more and achieve many victories, so Max can't afford to take it easy because things can change quickly."

Alonso: "Hamilton will definitely compete for eighth title"

Last weekend, after bringing a major update package, Mercedes was competitive again. Alonso believes that Lewis Hamilton can still break another record. "Hamilton definitely has a chance to win his eighth world title. I don't know if it will be next year or in the future, but he will certainly have another opportunity to win. Mercedes is a very strong team, Lewis is a very strong driver, and you don't simply unlearn how to drive from one season to another," said the Aston Martin driver.
