Max Verstappen admits that he does not want to deal with much drama in the upcoming Formula 1 season.

Verstappen and Hamilton had an intense battle for the world title in the past Formula 1 season. There were numerous controversial moments throughout the year, especially in the final races as the battle only heated up.

The Red Bull Racing driver came out on top, though the title-deciding race in Abu Dhabi caused even more disputes.

Verstappen has revealed that he does not want to have such a difficult campaign again.

“You can’t have that drama every single year, for sure,” the 2021 world champion told The Guardian.

“It’s not good for me, it’s not healthy for anyone in the team – both teams.”

The Dutchman has also stated that he will not feel much pressure in a championship battle as he has already won a title.

“That little pressure in the back of your mind, of having to win a World Championship or trying to win it, has gone.

“It’s already happened. I’ve done it. So when it’s tough or you’re having bad luck you probably will deal with it easier than normal.”
