MAX VERSTAPPEN has snubbed Lewis Hamilton when naming two drivers he would pick for his ideal Formula One team.

The Dutchman was asked about creating a hypothetical dream setup ahead of the 2023 season getting underway.

Max Verstappen shockingly did not choose Lewis Hamilton when creating a fictional dream team

Speaking to Mobil 1 The Grid, he unsurprisingly selected his own team principal Christian Horner to take charge.

And when it came to drivers, seven-time world champion Hamilton as well as Verstappen’s team-mate Sergio Perez were both not chosen by him.

The duo were overlooked while he attempted to mix youth and experience.

Verstappen said when choosing who should get behind the wheel: “I find that really hard, the drivers, because I think there are a lot of good drivers.

“I would go probably for an experienced one, so I would go for Fernando [Alonso].

“And then I would take a young guy and I would put Lando [Norris] in the car. Yeah, Fernando and Lando.”

Alonso has raced in F1 across 19 seasons and is a two-time world champion.

The 41-year-old will feature in the approaching campaign for Aston Martin.

Meanwhile, Norris is about to enter his fifth season on the F1 track and at McLaren.

The 23-year-old Brit is tipped for big things having podiumed six times in his career, finishing sixth and seventh in the last two years’ standings.

It is unlikely that Verstappen’s dream team ever becomes more than a hypothetical idea as he has already made it clear he has no desire to lead a team once retiring.

The winner of the last two campaigns previously said: “F1 has taken up a big part of my life for a long time. We have to travel a lot and there will be more races in the future.

“That’s when the question comes up whether the pursuit of even more successes is worth spending so much time away from your own family and friends.”
