Max Verstappen has completed a brilliant first season in Red Bull. The Dutch catch the best debut possible with his victory in the GP of Spain at the controls of the RB12 and since then has left samples of their quality with their podiums in Austria, Britain, Germany, or in the last phase of the season in Sepang or Suzuka. However, one of the turning points for the young pilot has been his memorable performance at the Interlagos, a race in which he finished third after a great showing of skill on wet asphalt.

Perhaps because of all this, Helmut Marko and, advisor of Motorsport Red Bull, believes that Max is ready to fight for everything in 2017: “When I met him he was a 15-year old boy with the maturity of a man of 26 years. Has an incredible confidence in himself. Since then three years have passed and it has been a great learning curve”. In this aspect, Marko remarked: “He doesn’t make the same mistake twice, so that I can say that Verstappen is ready for the title fight. There is No need for more additional preparation, you know the juego”.

Not quite finished the compliments of Marko to his pupil on the official website of the championship: He has no
weakness apart from that sometimes it is not enough patient
. Sometimes is
to force situations to your way when all you have to do is
wait a little bit and the success would fall in your lap, but in the process of change
this”
. And about the riding style of Max Verstappen, Marko added: It only shows
again how they should be racing
, as they were in the past. I remember when
guys like Senna or Schumacher arrived, they also had a different approach and
conflicted with what was established in his time. They were also
criticized”.
