Verstappen and Leclerc have stole the show in 2019 - F1 boss
Formula 1 chairman Chase Carey has praised the impact of the “younger generation” in the 2019 F1 season, singling out Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc in particular.
While Lewis Hamilton has been winning most of the races, a lot of the more entertaining aspects of the campaign have come lower down the grid. Verstappen and Leclerc have been responsible for some of the moments of the season, such as their duel with the win in Austria which the former won with just one lap remaining, or their flurry of battles in the next race in Great Britain.
These moments have represented the ‘hard racing’ that many fans are crying out for, and Carey believes they have been the bets thing to watch in 2019.
"When we look at this season, I think it is mainly the younger generation that steals the show," The F1 and Liberty Media chief said.
