Verstappen: I think drivers have to stand up and say what they think

Max Verstappen has admitted that he is very direct in his own communication in Formula 1 towards his team. The Red Bull Racing driver has inherited this from father Jos Verstappen and believes that it forms the basis for a good cooperation.

"I am very straightforward, I think. Sometimes you maybe say to yourself: maybe it's better to be a little bit quiet," said Verstappen who is aware of his own communication. However, the Dutchman is of the opinion that this honesty also contributes to better results in the end. "I'm there to win, you know. If you wouldn't have that desire to be there and just say 'its fine'. Then it's better to stop, because then the fire is not there. I want to win, I" because the best."

Maximum effort can be expected from both sides, said the nine-time Grand Prix winner. "They expect me to do my best and I expect them to do their best and of course When one of the two are not performing well, I mean They can tell me when I of course make a mistake How many followers I have done in the past and it should be like that. At the end of the day you should be critical to each other. It pushes you forward. If you are not able to talk to each other, what's the point of working together?"

Jos supports Max

Max learned that from father Jos Verstappen. "Some drivers say every weekend the same. I think Max says what he thinks in a prospective way. I think that's good, you know. It's also the emotions from drivers and teams. That's were Formula One is about, isn't it? So I think drivers have to stand up and say what they think. I think it's good for the sports and for everybody," said Verstappen senior.
