Verstappen produced a brilliant comeback in Austria after a first-lap collapse saw him drop several places on the grid. Since the race at the Red Bull Ring, Verstappen has achieved a podium finish in Hungary and could've easily done the same in Britain, whilst also winning at a wet Germany.
"In France, we were not very happy with the car, but we were also not very quick on the straight," Verstappen said to Autosport. "I think we got out of that and said we should push a bit harder, and not be so conservative about finishing the race having no issues on the engine.
"It's not much, but every few hundredths you can get out of it, when it's starting to get that close, it's really important. It all came together in Austria, when we started to push the car in a better direction, and the engine was marginal but every little bit helps."
