Max Verstappen’s Malaysian Grand Prix win testament to his determination | Giles Richards
The driver controlled his pace out front, matched Lewis Hamilton in every department and showed why he is a prodigious talent with a competitive car
It has been a torrid year for Max Verstappen, who, following pre-season hopes that he would be in a championship fight, were swiftly dashed after seven DNFs. Taking the much-deserved win in Malaysia was a testament to how, despite his sometimes obvious frustration, he has kept his mind on the game. He had said at the Hungarian Grand Prix that he was focusing on making the best of every weekend regardless of the setbacks and when he finally had an opportunity to do so he made it count.
