Max Hiding Hides His Weaknesses

Lewis Hamilton does it. In his contributions to social networks, the Formula One World Champion occasionally speaks of small uncertainties and weaknesses from his personal everyday life. Max Verstappen, however, ticks quite differently, as he recently assured.

He doesn’t like anything”about spreading the emotional life in the public. He therefore refrains from philosophizing about weaknesses in public.

“Even if you have any, I would never say that. Why call yourself weak when you have one? Why would anyone explain that? So no, I would never say such a thing,”says Verstpen.

How Albon deals with criticism

His Red Bull teammate Alexander Albon tries to hide the public from his Formula One life as well as possible. His recipe was “quite simple”, as he explains. “You don’t look at anything more than your phone.” Say: Don’t read what’s written about you in the press.

He is aware, however, that his sporting performance at Red Bull is in the criticism.” There are these comments,”says Albon,”but in the end it is I who is in control.”

Of course he perceives certain statements about his person.” You see it, but it doesn’t concern me,”says Albon. Everyone has an opinion. That’s good. That’s good. But I’m here to get better, and that’s what I’m focusing on.”

The alternative career of the Red Bull drivers

What he would have done if he hadn’t become a racer, Albon is then asked. Answer: “I really don’t know.”

“I like to design. For example, I helped design my helmet. Maybe I wouldn’t be a helmet designer, but something like that. I don’t know what it could be,”says the Formula One driver and adds:”I’d be pretty bad at an office job!”

Hide throws in: “Taxi driver?” And Albon answers directly: “No!”

Which brings the ball back to grips, and admits to having actually considered an alternative: “I would have tried on two wheels if it had not worked on four wheels. I used to do that when I was a kid. But then I realized a little more talent with four wheels.”
