When will Max win his first championship?

Max is always touted to be the next best thing in F1 and is often compared to the present and future, WDC, Lewis Hamilton. Well, the facts are that VER has 2 pole positions, 9 wins and 9 fastest laps after 116 races over a 5.5+year career in Formula One.

So here is my question: What year will Max win his first WDC?

And please feel free to add any commentary?
Cheers-mk

Missing an option for “Never” otherwise I would have voted for that.

He won’t win while Hamilton is still around, then when Hamilton retires there will be someone else that will enter the sport in the next couple years that will outperform Max.

I think next winner is Leclerc or Norris actually. Mentally strong, both of them... of course when Hammer retires.

MK,
“Not happening” is a category that is viable but I voted “Not happening until Hamilton retires” as the next best option.

I like Leclerc..he seems to be able to get the very most out of the Ferrari. He would be my tip for the next (post Hamilton) DWC all else being equal.

Agreed. They are quietly working on their craft while Max is worrying about Lewis.

Me too. And I believe RIC or NOR will be up there in the battle, as well.

Wow, I can't believe he has been in F1 for 5.5 years. It feels like just yesterday he was a rookie (and weaving all over the road to block people from passing him). After his Crashtappen phase, he's started to show some maturity, and has been pretty consistent this year. No doubt a real talent, but Champion will require a tighter field at the front -- impossible to evaluate until we see what changes fall out of the new 2022 regs.

It depends on when mercedes leaves F1 or when Max signs with mercedes.
We all know that it's mercedes that has such a huge advantage

Can't see it happening in '21, possibly for '22, but I'll plump for '23 as well. He may contain himself by then.
