F1 World Champion Max Verstappen hit out at critics of his
dominance over the field and believes any purple patch for any
driver must be ‘appreciated’. The Red Bull driver wrapped up a
third title early this season at the Qatar Grand Prix and has since
gone on to break his own record for most race victories in a single
campaign. With two races left, Verstappen has confirmed he will
also break Alberto Ascari’s 71-year-old record for percentage of
wins in a season, underlining the form he and his team have
displayed across the year. Speaking to Dutch media including
RacingNews365 , Verstappen explained: “You do everything you can to
win and once you get that, you try to hold onto that for as long as
possible. On what he finds difficult with his domination,
Verstappen added: “Depends, if you are that person, then nothing!
If you’re not that person, then of course it’s not so nice. But if
you are that person, it’s nice. “If you’re a fan [of ours], of
course, it’s great too and if you are not a fan of a particular
person or team, you don’t like it as much. “In the end, it’s about
looking at performance, not the boring dominance. “You always have
different opinions, some people can’t see that. Some do. Or don’t
want to see it, that’s also a difference.” ‘You can appreciate the
performance’ Verstappen’s streak of three World Championships is
something only Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher and Sebastian
Vettel have achieved this century. The control over the field has
led to concerns over the lack of excitement at the front of the
field but the Dutchman has insisted any patch of dominance should
be appreciated: “Michael Schumacher I have a hard time remembering,
but the early Red Bull years with Sebastian Vettel, I wasn’t
necessarily of the opinion that Seb should win or anyone else, but
you can appreciate the performance of the person. “Of course, as a
general fan you want a little more excitement or other teams
winning, but you should also be able to appreciate when one team
dominates because they are obviously doing better than someone
