Daniel Ricciardo has shared thoughts about Max Verstappen’s progress throughout his Formula 1 career.


  • Ricciardo was Verstappen’s teammate at Red Bull Racing from 2016 to 2018, when the Dutchman’s aggressive driving style occasionally led to incidents.
  • The McLaren driver believes that though Verstappen’s approach to racing stays the same, he has pacified his aggresiveness and therefore makes less mistakes.

What he had to say:

  • “I think in general, being his teammate, I don’t know if I have any more knowledge than everyone watching from the outside, because I think teammate or not, we know Max, you know, the caliber of driving, how he races.”
  • “I think he always came in with an aggressive approach, but I think he’s certainly matured over time and certainly finds himself in less incidents or accidents as I feel he was in the first year or so in F1.”
  • “So I think he’s definitely polished up that aggression but still has it.”
