Lewis Hamilton was the man to beat in Formula 1 turbo hybrid era, but of late youth has shown itself in the form of Red Bull driver Max Verstappen.

The pair were at each other’s throats for most of the 2021 F1 season as Max Verstappen just snatched Lewis Hamilton’s record-breaking 8th title from him in the final race of the season.

These two are the main contributors to the growth that Formula 1 is seeing around the world and now that Verstappen has completed 150 major races we’ll take a look at how the two stack up against each other.

After 150 races, it’s clear that Hamilton has the edge in every area, be it wins, poles or podiums.

After 150 races, Hamilton has clinched 34 victories, Verstappen 26 and the Briton is even ahead of the Dutchman when it comes to a podium finish.

The 2021 Formula One season has been an exciting affair between Verstappen and Hamilton and there have been instances when things have reached the boiling point between the two drivers.

Last season was a rollercoaster ride as fans got the chance to witness one of the fiercest rivalries in Formula 1 history as Max and Lewis put on a show to last a lifetime.

The Dutchman is just 24 years old while Hamilton is currently 37 years old at the end of his F1 career. The Briton has competed in far more races compared to Max but given Verstappen’s age he is also destined to compete in a decent number of races in his F1 career.

Hamilton currently has 297 starts to his name and will soon reach the 300 mark, as Hamilton has an advantage over Verstappen after 150 it will be fascinating to see how the two would stack up should Verstappen also win by 300.
