Verstappen describes ‘reset’ after key F1 moment

Max Verstappen has described the one key moment when he hit the “reset” button in his Formula 1 career.

The Dutchman is currently dominating F1 with his run of unbeaten wins in the last eight races, while his tally of 10 wins looks set to continue in the second half of the season.

It was not always plain sailing for the two-time World Champion, particularly in the 2018 season when he suffered six spins or crashes in the the first six races of the season.

His run of misadventures on track culminated at the Monaco Grand Prix that year, when a costly crash during third practice an hour before qualifying put him out of contention for the win.

Verstappen: Grind everything and start over

Verstappen describes the crash as being a turning point for his season when speaking to Dutch publication De Telegraaf: “I never asked myself the question: am I as good as I think? There are some unfortunate moments, that was the case at the beginning of 2018.

“I remember well that after the Monaco Grand Prix I just pressed the reset button. Then I thought: grind everything and just start over. Since the race after, in Canada, things have also gone well.

“Those stupid questions about my driving style and shape at the time made me completely crazy. Then you get a stupid answer back.”
