Max Verstappen On Another Level Of Redoubtable Consistency

Max Verstappen had scored, if you recollect, 454 points in the 2022 world championship season. The next year, i.e., 2023, he would raise his craft amass a whopping tally of 575 points, that’s something that both Leclerc and Sainz collectively failed to reach.

This year already, Max Verstappen has won both the season opening rounds, one each at Bahrain and the other, at Saudi Arabia.

To this day, his world record of claiming ten back to back wins in Formula 1 is being touted as one of the greatest achievements ever and rightly so.

As a matter of fact, his very recent win saw the famous Dutchman outperform the second-best driver on the grid, i.e., his own teammate by a margin north of 13.6 seconds. That the feat was achieved at a taxing street track and not a normal old school racing venue was in itself, an evidence of Verstappen’s sharpness and vividness in the highest echelons of racing.

Jeddah is fast and twisty and did little to affect the infallible concentration powers of the sport’s most dominant force.

Truth be told, none of that is as surprising and stunning as perhaps the frank admission of those who may have already given up on the current season.

As far as memes and saleable content surrounding the sport is concerned, many are already of the view that give the world title to Max Verstappen and let’s get done with the current World championship season.

One wonders, if they can be blamed for saying that. Even as the two Ferraris seem quick with both Sainz (first at Sakhir) and Leclerc (at Jeddah) garnering a podium apiece, it doesn’t seem highly likely that the SF 24 could be in a position to race the wheels of the machine and beat Red Bull. Expect, of course, some miracle was to happen!

Having said that, it is quite evident that Max Verstappen’s success is both a combination of a menacingly fast Red Bull car but also a result of his pursuit of sheer relentlessness on the track.

Add to that his doubtless desire to succeed and you see a heck of a driver outperforming the other nineteen on the grid. Make no mistake, for these are just early days of yet another brand new world championship season.

But Max Verstappen’s fury is out there for all to see and it can’t be doubted. Having said that, credit to where it’s due: we are seeing some very high quality driving from the man from the Netherlands at a time where the general atmosphere within the team and the level of morale is far from ideal.

It’s one thing to succeed, but something quite other to rule the roost when the man who’s been consistently backing you to deliver the goods, Horner in this case, is being chided from all possible corners.

That Max Verstappen hasn’t let any of those controversies evident in the team impact his level of concentration tells us a thing or two about his caliber.

F1, at the end of the day, isn’t just a rampantly fast sport driven by manically fast drivers; it’s also about a driver’s mental make up. And it’s the latter where Verstappen has excellent and doubtlessly so.
