But no, luckily that’s not the case. », blurted out the double world champion at a press conference. He even allowed himself to give her a little advice.

“You have to be able to appreciate when a team is doing very well”

And I think you have to be able to appreciate when a team is doing very well, which we have done in the past, because it also worked as a kind of inspiration. Seeing someone so dominant was very impressive at the time. And we knew we just had to work harder, try to be better and try to get to that level. And now that we’re here, we’re very happy, of course, to be here and enjoying the moment. Honestly, that’s all I can say about it. », added Max Verstappen. The war continues between the two camps.
