Franz Tost emphasizes Max Verstappen’s will to be victorious in races.


  • The AlphaTauri team principal believes that the Dutchman is ready to take risks as much as Ayrton Senna did.
  • Tost admits that Verstappen’s ability to control the car is at a high level.

What he had to say:

  • “That is always difficult, but he is most similar to Ayrton Senna in his willingness to take risks and his absolute will to win,” Tost told Sport1.
  • “I’ve known him since his days in karting. He has absolute control of the car and never has a problem with speed.”
  • “He feels the car and the tires extremely well. In addition, his father Jos gave him a good base to start from. After that, nothing could surprise him.”
