Team Radio

It seems that there is a fan of Max Verstappen working for Mercedes. After qualifying for the Turkish Grand Prix, the Dutchman was referred to as "Super Max" on Valtteri Bottas' onboard radio.

Incognito Verstappen fan at Mercedes?

His engineer confirms that Bottas has qualified in second place and then lists the top ten: "Lewis, then you, Super Max, Leclerc, Gasly, Alonso, Perez, Norris, Stroll and Tsunoda." The Finn either hasn't heard it, or he hears it so often that he has become used to it, as there is no reaction to the use of the nickname for Verstappen.

The moment can be heard from about seventeen seconds into the video.
