Max Verstappen thinks he is now one of the “more complete” drivers on the entire Formula 1 grid despite his young age.
Always fast and feisty, many pundits and insiders are now saying the almost 22-year-old Dutchman has notably matured over the past 12 months or so.
But the Red Bull-Honda driver says he hasn’t changed his methods during that time and told Formule1, “I do the same as what I have done in recent years.”
“I think that if I would suddenly start doing different things, it means what I did before that was wrong. And that’s not true,” he added.
However, Verstappen does agree that he has become “more complete” recently, as he approaches the 100-grand prix mark with both youth and a lot of experience.
“I started out quite young, so I think that’s pretty normal. Most other drivers in Formula 1 started out at 21 or 22. If you look at the grid now, I don’t think that many are more complete than me even if they are 29 or 30,” explained the Dutchman.
Big Question: Is Max as good as he thinks he is?
