Alonso is a perfectly example of a good racer who didn't know when to keep his mouth shut. He was also hampered by being given poor advice.
Verstappen has similar problems...the sooner he stops listening to his father and bans his whole entourage from races the sooner he can grow up and perhaps fulfil his potential.
In his current frame of mind he would be a poor fit for Mercedes...Ferrari are more likely to take him but I'm not sure they really need yet another driver who thinks they can run the team and drive the car at the same time.

You only have to look at how Alonso ended up to see that being a fast driver is not the whole package....(Honda now won't let Alonso race in a car with their engine after all the criticism of the Honda engine he made while at McLaren).
Verstappen needs to learn to keep his whining to himself...if he ever wants to move to teams like Ferrari and Mercedes where PR is paramount.

Max is whining and he has to keep his mouth shut ?
That's actually really funny . It remembers me Lewis when his Merc engine blew ...
Lewis went with a lawsuit against Merc as for engine sabotage !
Give me a break mate !

I think it's fair to say that Max has shown reasonable mature restraint in his fight to the top in spite of aggression shown towards him from Merc engined drivers and his 'team mate' from the karting days.

OK, all jokes aside, maybe Merc and Ferrari were very eager to sign Verstappen, why wouldn't they be?

And this is perhaps why RB gave him a lengthy contract, obviously with exit clauses on both sides. He probably also received a huge salary increase, as he rightfully deserves.

"Former Renault team boss Flavio Briatore says he is a fan of Max Verstappen but admit the Dutchman must "learn to keep his mouth shut" if he is to become one of the sports elite.

Verstappen is never too far from the headlines and, when accusations of Ferrari using illegal practices to increase output from their power unit, it was quotes from the Dutchman that began the witch hunt.

“He drives really fast, he knows how to constantly improve himself and he often steals the show," said Briatore on the official 2019 season review.

“But Verstappen must also learn to keep his mouth shut,” he added, referring in particular to the Dutch driver’s comments about Ferrari’s engine late in 2019.

“He could have left out the accusation that they cheated. First of all, it’s not up to him to make those sorts of statements. Secondly, the whole story was totally inaccurate.”

Your comment is not correct like usual ...
Lewis was butthurt in Monza and Spa , because he lost it there from Charles !
Lewis actually "made" the word => "The Ferrari Jet-Mode" That's what he said to the press . Lewis was the first to talk about the Ferrari "JET-Mode"

Lewis didn't had the balls to make it open for the FIA .
But MAX had the balls to do it mate ! Because Ferrari was cheating and it was visible for the whole world . The Ferrari pace (top-speed) was onreal on the straights !

It was actually really strange at that moment when MAX told that Ferrari was cheating .
Suddenly the Ferrari's were going slower ...and it was a fact
