So Max was drafted right from Euro F3, here is the place to talk and fanboy about similarly successful young drivers who would make good F1 material (Max has his own topics though, so keep the discussion down about him right now).

For the interests of the topic, no drivers who have spent more than 6 years in junior categories.


First choice for me: Anton De Pasquale.

Aussie leading the FR1.6 series with two rounds to go. He won the Australian FFord title last year.

Marvin Kirchhöfer:

 

German KF1 champion in 2011

In his first year of car racing he won the ADAC Formel Masters with 7 poles, 9 wins, 8 fastest laps and 16 podiums from 23 races,

Last year he became German F3 champion, he won 13 out of 26 races and missed the podium only once with a 4th place.

 

I tought this year he will be a title contender in GP3, but he's too hot-headed, at least he won his home race at Hockenheim.

Esteban Ocon

 

He benefits from the strong Prema Power team, but he is dominating F3 European series.

But who cares. Wins are wins. Hamilton destroyed all in '05 in Euro F3 with the ASM team (now ART).

Well, apart from Verstappen who I had followed in karts, I was very impressed with Esteban Ocon. 

 

I just heard Mercedes are going to snatch him up from Lotus. Should be very good for him and I'll keep following him in the next ladder series.
