Verstappen knows there is no such thing as an own style: 'Then you won't be quick'

According to Max Verstappen there is no such thing as a 'Verstappen-style' of driving. The Dutchman says you have to adapt yourself per car and per weekend. When a driver doesn't do that, he or she will never be fast.

Own style does not exist

"As a driver, it doesn’t matter if you have an understeering car, oversteery car, slippery surface, grippy surface, you constantly adjust your driving style to that", Verstappen says in conversation with The Race.

Verstappen continued by saying that a driver would not be fast if he said that a certain way of driving would be his style. "Then you will not be quick. I think you learn in your whole racing career from go-karting to F3 to whatever, every weekend the car behaves a bit differently. So. you always have to adjust to it", continues the Red Bull Racing driver.

Perfection does not exist in motorsport

According to Verstappen, a car will never be perfectly tuned. "And of course you try to set the car to your liking but it will never be fully to your liking. You always have to fine-tune. Or at least you try it."
