Verstappen dismisses Red Bull departure rumours

Max Verstappen has denied the rumours linking him with a move away from Red Bull Racing, saying he is "at home" with the team.

Rumours have recently circulated that Verstappen may have to look elsewhere team-wise, if he is to one day become a world champion.

However, the Dutchman seems very happy with his current team and he has insisted he doesn't want to end co-operation with the Milton Keynes-based squad. 

"Mercedes is now doing a fantastic job, but I feel very much at home with the team and it looks like this is the best place for me at the moment," Verstappen said. "I don't even bother with such things.

"I feel good within the team. I am also very relaxed and I think this also helps. We have spent a lot of time together in recent years and we know each other through and through. The communication is very good and I have fun.

"I think we had a better car than Mercedes and Ferrari at the end of 2018, but that's different now. We work hard to improve and we know what we have to do. We knew at the start of the year that it would be difficult, so what happens now does not come as a shock."
