Max Verstappen-“I’m Glad my Dad Wasn’t There”
“No. I’m just annoyed about not winning,” the Red Bull driver told in his interview. He spoke about how Ocon had no decency to even apologize and that he greeted him with a cheeky smile which flared his temper even more. “I wanted to know what was happening with him and he just did a big grin and said ‘I was faster than you’. He didn’t say he apologized and in fact reacted the opposite way,” said Max Verstappen.
Verstappen was asked if his long standing rivalry with Ocon, from the times when they were younger, caused more of an impact in what transpired after the Brazilian GP. Max Verstappen said, “He is not a competitor of mine in formula one. I focus on myself and the people I have to beat.”
He was also asked about what he thought about people asking him to consult a psychologist. “If they come to me with a psychologist, I’ll kick them out right away”, said Max Verstappen.“You have to stand firmly in your own shoes. I don’t need anyone. My father is a bit like a psychologist anyway,” he grinned.
