Is Verstappen one of the greatest drivers of all-time?
"I think, already now when you're having a conversation about [the] greatest of all time and you'll go back to Fangio and Moss and Clark and Stewart and Hamilton and I think you've now got to include already Max Verstappen in that discussion," Brundle told Sky Sports.
Of the five drivers Brundle mentioned in the same breath as Verstappen, only Sir Stirling Moss did not win a world title, although he did have to fight the might of Juan Manuel Fangio during his career.
Fangio won five titles to add to Hamilton's seven, while Sir Jackie Stewart clinched three and Jim Clark added two more to the group's overall tally of 17 successes.
With Verstappen's three triumphs added into the mix, the number becomes 20.
