Hamilton, Verstappen only stars in F1 – Briatore


- Former Formula 1 team boss Flavio Briatore believes Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are the sport’s only standout stars, but he tips Charles Leclerc to join them as he develops at Ferrari. The former Benetton and Renault team boss has given his assessment on the current picture of F1, having last worked in the sport in 2009 after the fallout from the Renault crash scandal at the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix, and feels only Hamilton and Verstappen can be considered global sporting stars compared to the previous greats.
