F1: 2023 has been a great season if not for Max – Maffei

Liberty Media boss Greg Maffei claimed that apart from Max Verstappen’s dominance in 2023, the season has delivered on all fronts in terms of racing and competition between other teams and drivers.

The Red Bull driver has been in a league of his own since the beginning of the season as he has won 15 out of 18 races plus 3 Sprint Races.

At an event hosted by investment company Goldman Sachs, Maffei claimed that the sport is very attractive right now apart from Max Verstappen’s dominance, which he joked could only be broken in a manner similar to American figure skater Tonya Harding breaking a leg. He said:

“The reality is, we have a very attractive competitive product, other than the fact that Max is that fast. Short of breaking his legs like Tonya Harding, I’m not sure what we can do about that.”

“But he’s a phenom. He’s driving what seems to be the fastest car and he’s driving it very well. If you look at the lines he’s taking, how aggressive those lines are, but how well he’s able to navigate them, it is truly stunning. And you can see statistically why he is faster than anybody else.,” says Maffei.
