Max Verstappen confirmed his dominance again this year and deservedly won the title. At the beginning of the season, the Dutchman had Ferrari as an opponent. However, as the season drew to a close, it was clear that Max would win the title.
When asked by a reporter if he wished the race between Red Bull and Ferrari had lasted longer, Verstappen answered: “On the one hand, yes. But if you look at how close the cars were, it's a bit surprising to have such a big gap anyway.
There weren't many weekends in which we were really dominant. But I mean, at the end, I'm pretty happy with how everything turned out, especially after the season I had last year . It's not always good to have that kind of fight every single year.
And I do think next year, everything will be closer anyway”. - Max Verstappen said, as quoted by motorsport.com. Max Verstappen believes that next season's race will be a bit more difficult. Many teams could be competitive, but we have no doubts about Red Bull.
“I think that’s going to be hard but I do think that we can be very competitive again. I just think that other teams will catch up a bit”.
Max Verstappen on other teams
The Dutchman is not worried about whether other teams will be more prepared or not.
He is focused on himself and his progress and does not want to worry too much about the future. Max is aware of the superiority of his team, but he does not want to be too optimistic. “To be honest, I don’t really think about it too much,” Verstappen said.
“I know that if I have a quick car that I can deliver, but sometimes you don’t have that car and I know that these times will arrive but hopefully not too soon.
