Verstappen a soft guy with a good heart? I think my heart is good

Max Verstappen is a beloved person in the world of Formula 1, despite the fact that he can sometimes be quite straightforward. The man from Limburg has been confronted with this himself and agrees that he gets on well with many of his colleagues.

Asked by Sky Italia if we can say that Verstappen is a soft guy with a good heart, the 23-year-old Dutchman himself replied, "I think my heart is good. I mean, I think so," he laughed.

It's notable that all of Verstappen's former teammates still get on well with him. Carlos Sainz, Daniel Ricciardo, Pierre Gasly and Alexander Albon all praise how the twelve-time Grand Prix winner handles himself. "I always get on well with them," said Verstappen. "They are very nice guys and I think we are all so driven, like on track of course we always want to beat each other. But off track we can actually have a good time as well and have fun."

One of his best friends in the paddock is Ricciardo. From 2016 to 2019 they drove together at Red Bull and the two men got along very well. They still do. "Now still with Daniel, for example because we live here in Monaco, you get of course to see each other a bit more, but also traveling wise to tracks and stuff and you know we share the plan or whatever. We don't always talk about Formula 1, you know. We can talk about all other kind of stuff in life and because at the end of the day F1 is one part of your life. But it's not all of it. Unfortunately it's a lot, but not all of it," he jokes in conclusion for the Italian camera.
