Red Bull Team Principal, Christian Horner, believes that pressure does not scare Max Verstappen and he rarely feels it even when the situation is not easy.
Verstappen is currently fighting for the championship win against Lewis Hamilton and he does not seem to feel any pressure. Plus, he did not make many mistakes so far and Horner said he is in great shape.
“I think Max is always relaxed,” Horner said. “He’s 23 and the pressure doesn’t seem to exist that much.
“He’s in good shape and he’s been training hard, preparing for this race [the Dutch GP] and all the other races with great care and attention. He’s ready to go.
“You don’t have to say a great deal to Max. With him, the picture is usually pretty clear. He’s a very easy guy to work with.”
After Spa, the F1 circus goes back to Zandvoort after a long time. Horner said that the atmosphere will be incredible and it will almost feel like a second home Grand Prix for Red Bull.
“Everything is good, we’re looking forward to racing in Holland and I think the atmosphere is going to be fantastic,” said Horner.
“I think that the support that we’ve seen for Max, wherever we go in the world, there’s always an orange grandstand.
“For us, it’s like another home race, so I’m excited to come and see the circuit, the atmosphere and hopefully we can put a good show.”
