Former F1 world champion Jody Scheckter believes Red Bull star Max Verstappen could break Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher's record and secure eight F1 world championships if his dominance continues.
Verstappen recently set his own record after winning 10 consecutive Grand Prix.
Speaking to Stats Perform, Scheckter humorously shared his thoughts on Verstappen's success by saying, "I think it'd be boring," before adding, "Well, I fought hard for my wins and they came every now and again.
"But no, it's incredible. Obviously, he's been superior to his team-mates all the time.
Doesn't matter who went in there, and he's got the car to win now. I think it's all together, granted, can't put anything against it.
"If he has this dominance all the time, it could be maybe eight [world championships], I don't know."
