Fans deliver verdict on Verstappen vs Hamilton as teammates

RacingNews365 asked who would come out on top - and you gave a resounding answer...

Lewis Hamilton believes that if he was in the Red Bull RB19 alongside Max Verstappen, the World Champion would be having a harder time than he currently is.

Verstappen has won 10 from 12 races in 2023, including eight straight between Miami and Belgium to all but secure a third world title.

His teammate and closest challenger Sergio Perez has been unable to live with the Dutchman, and is 125 points behind in the standings.

While a Hamilton vs Verstappen line-up in the class-leading RB19 would be a tantalising prospect, it is sadly never going to happen.

Not only would Red Bull never put another 'alpha male' alongside Verstappen, but the sheer financials of having two of the highest-paid athletes in the world would also be eye-watering.

But, RacingNews365 decided to ask you, the fans, who you thought would come out on top if Hamilton did join Verstappen as teammate at Red Bull.

There was also a third-option for those who could not make a choice, but one World Champion came out the convincing winner.
