Max Verstappen continued his dominance with another victory, this time at the Dutch GP. The Dutchman looks unstoppable and it is certain that he will win the third title in a row, but this time very convincingly. Fernando Alonso was also great, finishing in second place.
At the end of the race, the Spaniard only had words of praise for Max and what he is currently doing. Fernando emphasized that many still do not see how great things Max is currently doing. “It is underestimated sometimes what Max is achieving,” Alonso said, as quoted by crash.net!
Alonso is happy about his success, but also aware that it is very difficult to be as good as Verstappen. "To win in such a dominant manner in any professional sport, it is so complicated. So, to be at the same level as him…obviously, we have a lot of self-confidence drivers in general!
So I do believe that I can do good as well. I don’t know about Lewis, but me, yes! [Smiles]. And Lewis as well. Everyone needs to enter in a mood, in a state, that you feel connected with the car. Days like today I felt that I was at my best, and I’m giving 100% of what I felt of my abilities in a racing car."
Fernando Alonso on Max Verstappen
The Spaniard has felt many times during the season that he is not at 100%.
His goal is to progress and be better from race to race. On the other hand, Verstappen is at 100% in almost every race, which is truly unprecedented. At the moment, everyone is far from him. “But maybe in Spa I was not at that level, or in Austria, or something else.
You always feel that there is room to improve and you are not 100% happy with yourself, as I am today. Max is achieving that 100% more often than us at the moment, and [more than] any other driver. That’s why he’s dominating”.
