Italy - 1979 world champion Jody Scheckter says he sees similarities between himself and Formula 1 sensation Max Verstappen.

Scheckter and Verstappen comparisons 

The South African, who now runs an organic farm, told Italy's La Repubblica:"Yes, he reminds me of myself in the beginning, although he is perhaps stronger than I was. 

"I'd also like to say I was like Hamilton, but I had accidents that he never had.

Thoughts on Vettel

"Vettel is very strong now and also earlier when the cars were different, but three years ago Ricciardo beat him.

"As for Alonso, he is good on the track but he behaves incorrectly, such as his year (2007) at McLaren," Scheckter concluded.
