Max Verstappen – “In Formula 1 you can go from hero to zero”
Even though Max Verstappen had a turbulent start in his Formula 1 career, he’s proved himself – earning respect from fellow Formula1 drivers, commentators and critics who had once doubted him. He knows what he wants and he’s not afraid to share his opinion.
Speaking to Ziggo sport, the Red Bull Racing driver has said that he’s “not a fan” of being compared to legendary drivers as he wants to simply make a name for himself.
Max Versteppen – “I’m not really a fan of being compared to anyone. I try to keep focusing on myself. It’s really nice to hear that people are positive but it’s not something that I think about too much – in Formula 1, you can go from hero to zero in a moment.”
“I always think that you have to think of yourself as the best, if you don’t – what’s the point of participating? The goal is to be the best and I have to prove it whenever I get the chance. This obviously depends on the car too but I hope that I’m able to prove myself more often.”
Max Verstappen is a driver that’s on the rise, with a wide following he’s now being recognised not only as a great driver that pushes the limits but also a World Champion in the making.
