Verstappen derides “stupid” suggestion he might lose motivation | RaceFans Round-up

In the round-up: Max Verstappen dismissed suggestions the difficulty of beating Mercedes might sap his motivation.

What they say

Verstappen was asked how he remains motivated knowing how hard it is to beat Mercedes:

I don’t understand what people think you wouldn’t be motivated. You have one of the best jobs in the world. You’re driving super fast cars. And I’m driving third or second. And I had one win. So I find it incredible that people think you wouldn’t be motivated. It’s really stupid.

I love what I’m doing. Every weekend I come here and I love driving the car and I want to, of course, try to challenge them. But if it’s not possible, I settle for the best result possible in the car I have and then I’m still enjoying it.
