What Verstappen is looking forward to most about the 2021 season

Prior to this year’s title fight with Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen admitted that races were often “a bit boring.”

After several seasons of feeling “a bit bored” behind the dominant Mercedes team, Max Verstappen says he has enjoyed simply being involved in a battle at the front of the Formula One field in 2021.

Verstappen, who had sporadic victories and podium finishes in previous years, is now vying for his first F1 title, with Red Bull and Honda stepping up to challenge Mercedes.

The Dutchman is enjoying the situation as the race continues, with Verstappen leading Lewis Hamilton by eight points.

“It’s been really good,” Verstappen told media as he reflected on the season so far.

“You know, there are sometimes some races, especially for me last year, where I would be driving in third and I would be on my own. I knew that there was not much to gain or to lose. Naturally, of course, the race then becomes a bit boring.

“Now in most of the races, you’re really pushing like the whole race, flat out. That is something which doesn’t happen all the time.”

Verstappen wants more teams involved

Verstappen is hopeful that more teams will be able to compete in the future, with F1 planning a rule change in 2022.

He continued: “You’re constantly like under pressure, or you are the one attacking, and I think that’s just great, because it’s nice to have at least two teams fighting for a win.

“I hope in the future it’s going to be more teams, because then it will make it even more exciting.”

While Verstappen leads the Drivers’ Championship, Red Bull trails Mercedes in the Constructors’ standings by five points.
