Is Verstappen difficult as a teammate? You'd better ask Red Bull''

Red Bull Racing is also often called the team of Max Verstappen. The Dutchman himself is not very happy with this, although several drivers say that Verstappen is an excellent driver and difficult to beat.

Verstappen bale of 'own team

"It's not my team, because otherwise it would be called Max Verstappen Racing. I'm easy to deal with and I don't hold anything back. I also want us to do well as a team and together I try to get the maximum out of it. So it's better to ask the team if it's difficult to put a driver next to me," says Verstappen to Motorsport.com.

Alexander Albon, of course, gets the same question, but he mainly looks at himself. "I only focus on my own performance and not on other things. I can, of course, compare myself with Max, but apart from that he is only a teammate and I have to make sure I perform myself," the Thai says.

Sainz is a fan of Verstappen

In his first year in Formula 1, Verstappen drove alongside Carlos Sainz in the Toro Rosso. When the Spaniard is asked about his collaboration with Verstappen, he is praised. There were always rumours that the two couldn't get along, but that doesn't seem to be the case at all.

"Max is very strong on all fronts and maybe the strongest driver on the grid at the moment. He's very competitive and I've learned a lot from that, but I really enjoyed it. Because of him, I have become a better driver, but he is also just a cool guy. I get along very well with him," the Spaniard concludes.
