    Have Your Say - Next Big F1 Star.jpg
    As several key names from the old guard look to step off into the sunset in the next couple of years, who do you think is the next 'big thing' on the Formula One horizon?


    The old adage "if you are good enough, you are old enough" has never rung truer in Formula One circles than it does today, with teenage Max Verstappen lighting up the field on a regular basis and Lance Stroll have just become the youngest podium finisher in the history of the sport, however some could argue the quality of the field when taken as a whole is not as strong as has been in years past.

    With drivers such as Raikkonen, Alonso, Massa, Hamilton, Vettel all over 30 years of age, where could the next big F1 star come from?

    Many expect the likes of Verstappen, Ricciardo, Bottas and Vandoorne to be fighting at the front for years to come, by can you see another potentially big talent on the Formula One horizon?

    Todays question is:

    Who do you see as the next big Formula One star?

    Have fun debating and leave a comment below!

    Can only be Charles Leclerc. The overtaking shows in F2 he does are just stunning... reminds me of Senna and Vettel in their best days.Hope he gets the Sauber seat next year and as a Kimi fan I have to say, I hope he will replace Kimi for 2019 :)

    Jamie Caroline. He's really good in British F4 this year and, most importantly, he has got quite big sponsor on his back. And ofc Lando Norris. Next British F1 champion.
