Red Bull’s Dutch driver is engaged in a fierce battle with Lewis Hamilton and says: ‘I knew if I had a car capable of fighting for the title I would be up there’
As shafts of sunlight break through the roiling clouds ringing the Styrian mountains, they offer only shadow play set against Max Verstappen’s bright exuberance. Since he was a child all Verstappen has wanted to do is fight for the Formula One world championship. Right now, he is not only in that fight but on top, leading the defending champion, Lewis Hamilton. On the eve of the Austrian Grand Prix Max feels good. It’s clear he knew that he would.
On top of his game, the 23-year-old is unafraid to speak his mind; the openness makes him stand out among drivers and is fundamental to his success with his Red Bull team.
