F1 talented youngster Max Verstappen has told his critics to “get used to” his on-track style.
The 18-year-old was the hot topic of conversation in the Monza paddock, a week after riling Kimi Raikkonen and many of his rivals at Spa.
F1 legend Niki Lauda even urged the Dutchman to go to a “psychiatrist” to temper his aggression.
“If I go, then we might as well go together,” Verstappen laughed, as he appeared on the Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport Totaal.
As for Finn Raikkonen’s criticism, however, Max added: “If I was Kimi, I would have said the same thing on the radio.”
But Verstappen said the criticism “doesn’t change much for me — on the track, I do my own thing. Some actions may be viewed critically, but then they just have to get used to it, I guess.”
