Unfortunately your argument (which is rather nonsensical) falls flat because it's always been Max running away from facing the challenge of Lewis at Mercedes.
That's never been a possibility don't be nonsensical. RedBull would not allow that's to happen and Mercedes has never searched out Max.
Also Max hasn't been available....
Max isn't scared of Hamilton.
Max really would beat Perez and anyone really.
--- I'ma Max fan.... Hahaha...---.
What's nonsensical to me is arguing that Hulkenberg is the right man for the job because he's slower and docile.
When clearly RedBull has that in Albon or they would not be looking for a replacement.
Even tho I still don't think they will get some one from outside their academy.....
If they do they will not get the slower one for being slow...
Max can beat Perez
But they will probably still end up with Albon or Yuki.
I'm not arguing that RedBull Will take Perez....
I'm arguing that if they do take some one outside of their academy it wont be the Hulkenberg.
He has had ample chance to be in the Mercedes. He goes on about how the Merc is dominant, how many drivers would have won Championships in the Mercedes, how he feels he himself is the best and fastest driver but ultimately didn't sign for them then.
Winter 2016: He (Horner) confirmed Mercedes had inquired about hiring either Ricciardo or Verstappen as a replacement for Nico Rosberg after the German's retirement in December, but said that he had turned them down in a "fairly short" conversation. source - https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/form ... -prospects
April 2017: Wolff got asked (2m11s) if Verstappen would become a Mercedes driver in the future and he answered, "Yes!" source -

Fall 2017: Just before Verstappen signed an extension with Red Bull Lauda got asked (2m35s) if he could imagine Hamilton - Verstappen next to each other for 2019 and 2020, "the perfect line up," he answered, "Yes!" source -
June 2018: Wolff in an interview with a Dutch newspaper about Verstappen joining Mercedes, he describes Verstappen as "one the most talented and fearless drivers" of this moment. Wolff: "but Max decided to commit himself to Red Bull until '20 and we respect contracts. So from '21 we should talk again." source -https://www.volkskrant.nl/sport/boven-o ... ~b33cb2ab/
August 2019: Lewis Hamilton would not have a problem with Max Verstappen becoming his Mercedes teammate next year, saying he would enjoy the opportunity to prove he is the better driver. Lewis - In some ways it works well for me. I see stories saying that we have different cars, so that's the only way (I am beating him), so it gives me an opportunity to show that's not the case.

Jan 2019: MAX VERSTAPPEN says he would only join Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes or Sebastian Vettel's Ferrari if he had no other options. Verstappen - When I think of my own career, it is not convenient to sit next to Hamilton or Vettel right now. Although I would absolutely do it if I had no other choice.

To be honest I hate the kind of driver glorification many people do, recently many Max fans but all drivers have fans who do this whether it be Schumacher or Alonso or Hamilton or whoever. I don't get it. Especially on this forum. It's F1TECHNICAL not reddit or mydriveristhegoat.com. Do you honestly feel that adds anything sensible to the discussion apart from yes Max is the best and would beat anyone. (No offense intended just asking for some self reflection)
