This video should be an automatic response to anyone who keeps saying that Max is too young or has trouble managing his anger. I mean look at him (not just in this video): I see a balanced man who knows exactly his priorities. Races are a lot for him, but he also has other things in life and he can appreciate them. He can talk about his opponents with respect (and it sounds really honest, not fake like many others.), but without fear. He does not make ironic remarks about his opponents, he does not play mind games. For me, these are qualities of a true champion.
I love it how fair is he in his judgment. Great guy and an exceptional driver.
I’ve been saying for a while, he has definitely grown and any anger and negativity he spews on track now is all fueled and hyped up by Horner and Marko. I hope he get the title this year.
I'm a huge Lewis fan, but I don't get the max hate sometimes, that dude is awesome and has crazy amounts of talent
I hope Steve didn't jinx it for Max when he said:
"Your lead in the championship with 32 points, I don't know if you know but.. That margin, anyone who's had that in the past has never lost the championship."

first 2 races after this interview resulted in a DNF and a 10th place.
People who still label this man as aggressive and ruthless clearly has never bothered to listen to a word he says

I never imagined Max as a cat person 😹
I'm amazed how he separates his focus on track and off track. 
Well done, hope the second half of the season be better for him.
I take my hat off to Max for his drive in the race yesterday. A amazing drive in a damaged car. 👍
Wise answer from Max, not knowing how difficult the future will be for him.

Nice to see this. Channel 4 gives non-british drivers a real chance to show who they really are. I always remember the interview with Max when he was going babysitting. Great!

Lovely interview
Max comes across as more mature than Horner & Marko.
He was the first one to give Honda their props on improving the engine & RB fortunes long before Christian & Marko
Lots of potential in Max & amazing talent . A diamond 💎 in the rough

Bogar Rodriguez:
Love that he respects Lewis the proper way while still keeping his confidence and self belief. Awesome e
He really is level headed. I know people chastise him sometimes when he’s voices anger, but he has people coming at home day in and day out. Especially after the crash at Silverstone. I personally commend him for shutting down the questions about it. They relentlessly asked the same questions .

‘Anybody who’s had a 32 points lead has never lost the championship’

Unless you get taken out by your main rivals in two consecutive races.

Having seen this I have a huge respect for Max - what a great guy …..
I like the trend of not making videos appear perfect. By that I mean when they show the process the people went to before and after the cameras came on. They don’t just present the show but show us how it was presented in the process. Nice work
Max driving half the car to finish line with points in a 72 lap Hungary race is a champion level racing.

This guy is legit!. Total Champion... I'm a fan for life.
It's cool seeing max turn from a cocky kid, to someone who is confident. Two entirely different things. He's grown a lot, and carries himself as someone beyond his years.
Boy Driessen
Boy Driessen:
He's so Dutch, direct, no nonsense and dry humor. A perfect fit for Red Bull as a driver with his style and risky driving which makes watching the racing so fun.
Channel 4 thank you so much for Max Verstappen content 👏
Also I just love how calm, grounded and level headed he is about everything in F1..having that mindset at 23 is incredible (especially with the pressure being put on him now by the teams, rivals, media..)

Max has definitely become a very mature chap and it's lovely to here him talking about how the weekend is for racing then he enjoys home time. 👍

Verstappen has an amazing talent, really good F1 driver. He’ll be World Champion someday and I’m also a cat person. 😊😊

"32 point lead has always resulted in winning the championship" .. Well that escalated quicky.... :-(
He could have even more if he didn't have the blown tire and was taken out twice by a Mercedes.

meanwhile lost his big lead in championship , got taken out twice by Mercedes ..unreal , hard and fair is out ...hope Karma is going to settle this as this isnt the way this season should be decided

I really like Max, he seems like a great guy. I've been a Lewis fan, but I'm glad Max will be around for a long time to come in F1. And Lando like he said, I think Lando will be batting max in the next few years.

11:03: Little did VER know what M-AMG would do to RBR the next 2 races. But enough of that, he will overcome this...
The cats are now named: Lewis and Toto as of August 1st.
Love the dog-barf instead of a beep 13:43
Very interesting this interview with Max, allows us to see not only a F1 pilot, but also a person that is still young and very mature for his age, very interesting his view about everything in F1 and also out of it. His pets and other things. Very nice interview.
And now Max’s season has been ruined thanks to Mercedes’ mistakes. Not only taken out if contention in 2 races, broken engine (will get multiple grid penalties this season), huge amount of damage that will massively disadvantage RB in the rest of the season because of the cost cap
If only he could have predicted his outcomes after this interview he would have been better off 😢
this is great! please more F1 content. and this should be uploaded before the GBgp. it helps to get even more excited.

thank you.
Great interview from Max!
Great interview. Loved the behind the scenes elements. Well done.

"A 32 point lead has always resulted in winning the championship." Here we are 2 races after the lead with Hamilton up front again. :D

I love how they filmed the interviewer getting his hair done and also how the one cameraman filmed the other cameraman filming the interview. That's what I was hoping to see when I clicked on this video, not the actual interview.
April C Gomez
April C Gomez:
I’m not a big fan of Max but I really want him to win this year championship. He has changed a LOT for better.
Rayado Uno
Rayado Uno:
To ask who he wants as a teammate was a lil bit pushing it. Of course a driver like him will or may have a say on choices but he just got a partner this year! So allow the team to develop and build on the strategies and strengths of each as a combo. I have no doubt that this season will turn into great things for Red Bull but next year will be a ton better if they stick together!

Gotta love as Bond, a licensed killer in the car! I really liked the shots of the prep work n the angles during the interview.
N I'll bet he's cursed HAMILTON at least once this season...maybe after Monza😉

Max is so damn sympatic guy..

Solid, humble, bloke, and great driver, that’s what’s going to make him 2021 world champ and not “look at me Lewis”
In my country we are so polarized (Soccer roots) that the big majority of the fans can't appreciate the INCREDIBLE fight that we have. Or you're team max or team Lewis. As a big fan of both i couldn't be happier!!

3 weeks since this interview, and damn alot has changed
What he said about the team not having sides was awesome. other f1 teams can learn from that.
Also max speaks better english than 70% of England :D
Max comes across very well in this interview. I am not a Max fan but recognise his undoubted ability as a great driver . He is intelligent and mature as has been said . Whether he becomes an all time great only time will tell as there are a number of young great drivers now who given a top car could be strong opposition and we cant forget an all time great in Lewis. He hasn't won his first world championship yet. I think George ,Charles and for me especially Lando and his consistency will make it difficult. Next year depends on who gets the best car. It may not be a Red Bull or Mercedes. My only negative with the interview and its not with Max is Steve Jones and his style . He is not my favourite interviewer with the way he has to descend into hyperbole all the time., especially on TV. Even in this serious interview he expects whoever partners Max he will destroy them, no matter who it is. Its just a silly thing to say on so many levels.

Can’t wait to see the interview about the taxi 😂
Only seeing and observing this.... His best is even yet to come!
I love the fact that Max is a Cat lover! Our Cat's are also the middle of us! We have put a Net on the balcony, so that they can not fall! Awesome interview!
This interview was pre Silverstone. No wonder he is relaxed

"32 point gap has always led to a championsh..."

Lewis retires with 10 championships?

Matt D:
Love the behind scenes build up. Nice touch
There is a new Sheriff in town... and Hamilton knows it, very well. Lewis has had EXTREME dumb luck this season. And even twice thanks to his teammate Bottas. I never heard Hamilton address this... we all know why.

I like that he is honest

This is the kind of video that "Precedes very unfortunate event" 💔💔
Russ Serpico
Russ Serpico:
Max is like, what kind of idiotic questions are these? Max was probably thinking, in one statement you say, "it's a dream season... leading in the championship", then followed with, would you like a new teammate with Russell? Max quickly set him straight by saying, Sergio is a good teammate and Red Bull is doing good with Perez, implying why change what we have? Get with the program dude.

And now he's the world champion he deserves it so much !
Damn you really jinxed him right then and there with the 32 point lead and never lost the championship
This video has aged well, considering what has happened.

What a wonderful young man. Pure, honest, righteous, humorous, perspective, open and himself. A great sportsman with an exceptional talent. At a young age it quickly became clear that we are dealing with phenomenon here.

Good old Steve bring him back it's not the same any more max is the man the sooner he's the champ the better. 👍
A drinking game to play while listening to Max interviews...chug a beer every time he says “Of course”.
John and More HB
John and More HB:
4:00 guess Verstappen is very happy with that statement right now…..
M L:
Such a disgrace how Hamilton and Mercedes behave against him. Max is so much bigger and better as Hamilton, and he knows it. His behaviour against Max shows how much better Max is.
Little he knew.....for the next two races!!
Love Max
Parth Sethi
Parth Sethi:
Not a max fan but I can appreciate his maturity and talent. He has changed so much from a couple years ago and now clearly a deserving world champion if he wins it.
I mean, Alonso did have around 40 points advantage before the Belgium GP 2012 and Vettel won, so I don't know what the guy was talking about.
The best about Max is his Dutch approach with everything he does, basically. It is what it is. Nothing more, Nothing less. Not to mention the fact how amazing it is to see his driving skills on the weekends. It's incredible. With Lewis, there is always some kind of weird magical story when he's answering questions and he definitely can't take the heat when it comes down to it. Just like in Hungary with Alonso.
Really hope Max wins the championship. His consistent improvement over the years, definitely deserves the highest reward at this stage.
