Video transcript

MAX VERSTAPPEN: Hi, guys, Max Verstappen here. And hopefully, you enjoy watching.


I mean, I don't really look at it like that. For me, I'm just enjoying what I'm doing. And of course, you want to win. You want to try and be the best. But I think as long as you enjoy what you're actually, like, doing right now and what you're achieving together with the team as well and enjoy what you're doing also privately, then for me, there is no real stress factor to it.

Everyone is very different in their approach. I think for me the way I approach it is to be just very relaxed and actually not really think about Formula 1 too much when I'm at home, for example. Yeah, for me, it works like that. But other people need to be maybe different. So every individual is very different in how they approach their job or, you know, work, sport.


It depends. I mean, mainly in between the races, I think what is important is just to spend time with family and friends as much as you can, enjoy your hobbies a little bit. But again, you can't really do a lot in between anyway when you're traveling so much. But yeah, just quality time with good people.

Phone call? I barely call. No, I don't like to call.

- OK.

MAX VERSTAPPEN: You know, of course, over the years a bit more about yourself as well, your body what you need to be fit for Formula 1. But of course, I also have my own physio, my own trainer to be on top of that. So we have very dedicated schedules throughout the year, you know, where we are working out or not or rest. So basically since I started Formula 1, it has been like that.

I don't know. I mean, for me, the mental side, probably not so much. Physical side is important because you need to be fit you need to be able to steer the car and without any consequences. So for sure, the physical side is very important.


You know, to be honest, I know what it takes, of course, to be in Formula 1. And of course, as an outsider, you don't understand fully, but that's fine. I mean, everyone has their own opinion. For me, this is not something that I really worry about, you know, in my time.


Probably just every single race weekend answering about the upcoming race, weekend stuff like that. It's always very repetitive, you know?
