Verstappen talks tough
Max Verstappen has made it clear he will not change his combative driving style as he targets many more wins.
The Red Bull flyer is looking to muscle in on Mercedes' dominance this year and has moved to within seven points of second-placed Valtteri Bottas in the drivers' standings.
Bottas' team-mate Lewis Hamilton is way out in front and, barring a nightmare second part of the campaign, will waltz to a sixth F1 title later in the year.
Verstappen has been tipped as future champion and has shown all the signs that he is ready to take up that challenge, telling the Red Bull Racing website of his desire to succeed.
"It's pretty good (the season), but it could always be better," he said. "Of course we want to win more races. I'm not there to try and make a big show out of it, I'm just trying to get the best result."
The Dutchman takes no prisoners out on the track and his aggressive style has raised a few eyebrows, but the 21-year-old seems to have no intention of altering anything at present.
"I like fighting on the track and fighting hard for a victory," he added. "I take the fight to the other drivers and I think fans like that."
