Opinion | Max Verstappen Is Too Good

Formula One driver Max Verstappen is having one of the most dominant seasons ever by any athlete in any sport. And it’s boring.

The Dutch driver has won 17 of the 20 races run so far this season, has clinched the championship, and will soon move into third place on F1’s all-time-wins leader board. Though he earns headlines for his victories, race highlights hardly feature him. He usually finishes near the top in qualifying contests, which establish the race order. Once the starting lights flash, Mr. Verstappen, 26, quickly takes the lead and zooms steadily ahead, seldom facing a serious challenge for the rest of the race. He must be getting tired of the champagne spritz by now.
