Verstappen receives much praise: 'I like Max very much'

Max Verstappen will be fighting for the world title for the first time in his career this season. The Dutchman is still ahead of his rival Lewis Hamilton in the world championship and is therefore garnishing much praise from Alan Jones.

The former-World Champion in Formula 1 enjoys the way Verstappen presents himself to the outside world. The Red Bull Racing driver often receives praise in the international media for the risks he dares to take during races. What's more, he's shown in the media this season that he doesn't shy away from making a bold statement.

Jones looks at Verstappen with a lot of enthusiasm, he said in an interview with the This Is Your Journey podcast. "I like Verstappen very much. I love his style, his attitude and his 'put me in the same car as someone else and I'll beat them' personality."

Battle between Hamilton and Verstappen

Verstappen and Hamilton only have the Grands Prix of Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi to go this season. While the Dutchman appeared to be on course for his first world title for a while, Hamilton's results in recent weeks have brought the Brit closer to Verstappen. With a difference of eight points, Formula 1 is heading for a thrilling final race.
