I have to say that I was surprised”, commenting in jest that “I know him since a long time ago, I have seen many races from him, but as of today I think it is amazing. It has been a pleasure today,”. At that time, Niki Lauda arrived at the place, and taking off his hat to Jos Verstappen, making clear his admiration for what Max had achieved.
