2016 F1 champion Nico Rosberg says the level between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen is “maybe the highest Formula 1 has known”.
Lewis Hamilton’s former team-mate and title rival Nico Rosberg gave his thoughts on the United States Grand Prix and the current state of the 2021 championship to Sky Germany.
“It’s so extremely exciting that I watched the race again last weekend,” the German said.
“It’s crazy. The cars are exactly the same, the drivers are on the same level and are in a league of their own. Nobody can keep up with them.
“It’s going to be very close in the last few races, so much is going to happen. I can’t estimate how it’s going to turn out after Austin.

“The level is so high, maybe the highest Formula 1 has known between two drivers.”
When asked to give his prediction on who will win the world title, Rosberg ultimately gave a slight edge to Hamilton.
“You can’t say that yet. Normally I would go for Hamilton because of his experience and because he always wins, he is incredibly difficult to beat.
“Somehow I think he can still do it, but Max is a giant at the moment,” Rosberg concluded.
