“What Lewis Hamilton has been doing all year, you can now hear Max doing it for the first time.
“I loved that he said: ‘We shouldn’t look at Mercedes, we’re going to drive our own race’. This shows how he’s grown.”
Verstappen, while only 23, has been around F1 for a while.
He made his first appearance in the sport back in 2015, finishing 12th in the standings, before then managing a top-five finish the following year.
In 2017 he finished fifth, before then climbing two places in 2018.
And he’s since managed back-to-back top three finishes, though admittedly failed in his quest to dislodge Hamilton at the top of the standings.
