Should Verstappen become champion, it’ll be Red Bulls’ first since 2013, and it would end Mercedes’ seven-year domination.

And Haupt thinks ‘it’s time’ for someone other than Hamilton to be top of the F1 mountain.

He told Sport1: “I think it’s time for someone other than (Lewis) Hamilton to become world champion.

“In terms of Formula 1, it would be huge for Red Bull to win the title, so I hope Verstappen manages it.

“There are still a few more circuits that suit Mercedes, but if Max scores well in the next two races, he will have the nerve to hang onto it.”

Mexico, Brazil, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi will be the battlegrounds where the title is decided.

Hamilton won the last time F1 was in Mexico City back in 2019, but Verstappen has a knack for winning on the track too.

Verstappen won in back-to-back seasons before 2019.

And the Dutchman also won in Brazil in 2020.
