It's been an incredible year so far for Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport as they've won four races and finished second in the constructors' championship. However, there's still plenty of room for improvement, especially with the upcoming changes to the regulations.
Max Verstappens has had a stellar season so far, winning three races and finishing third in the drivers' standings. He's also shown his ability to adapt to new cars and circuits, having won at Monaco and Silverstone in 2017. With Red Bull Racing switching back to Renault power units next season, Verstappen should continue to improve.
Verstappen is currently ranked fourth in the F1 Drivers' Championship with two wins and four podium finishes. His teammate Daniel Ricciardo is fifth with one win and five podiums.
Verstappen has been more consistent than his Australian counterpart, winning three races compared to Ricciardo's two. However, Verstappen has also had more bad luck, having suffered a broken front wing at the Belgian Grand Prix while Ricciardo was leading the race.
Both drivers have been very successful so far this season, with both drivers having won four races each. However, Verstapen has been more consistent, having finished second in five races compared to Ricciardos' three.
