Coulthard: Red Bull has been perfect for Verstappen's personality development

David Coulthard believes Max Verstappen is perfectly placed at Aston Martin Red Bull Racing as that team are helping his personality grow as well as his talent. The former British Formula 1 driver who used to race for the same team, is confident the 22-year-old will be able to push for the world championship next season but will need a good car.  

The Scotsman reported the following to De Telegraaf: “The question is not whether you should be patient, because he has all the talent. However, you do need a good car throughout the year."

At least Red Bull Racing has been the place where Verstappen has been able to develop convincingly in recent seasons: "The perfect place in Formula 1 for Verstappen to develop its talent and personality."

Coulthard believes that the RBR driver has ample motivation. That is necessary if you want to make a dream come true: “Many talented drivers did not make it in F1. I think that is because a number of them were too lazy. You must always be able to give 100 percent," says Coulthard.
