Max Verstappen admitted that a second world championship title will be “less emotional” for him than the first if he achieves the feat again.

Verstappen won his first title last year in a dramatic battle with Lewis Hamilton. The Dutchman has a high chance of winning another championship as he is 80 points ahead of Charles Leclerc in the standings.

Verstappen believes that a second championship win will not be as emotional as the first one.

“I think it will be less emotional if it would happen,” he told Channel 4.

“It’s the same as the first race; when I entered my first [F1] race it was the most emotional ‘win’ from of all of them, aside from the world championship win.

“All the other ones, they’ve never been as emotional as that one because that’s the first time you get to taste something like that which is such a difficult thing to achieve in Formula 1.

“I think it will be different but I also prefer not to really think about that yet. We’re on a good run but we have to keep it going.”
