Max Verstappen was recently crowned F1 champion in 2021, after he claimed his 10th win of the season at GP Abu Dhabi. The 24-year-old has achieved his life goal of winning the championship, and as he said, any more F1 title will be nothing but an added bonus.

Max Verstappen has dominated the F1 season, scoring 10 pole positions, 10 race wins and 18 podium finishes, which is a record in itself. However, the Dutchman has had to receive some controversy, as both, Max and Lewis Hamilton have pushed each other to the absolute limit.

In an interview with former F1 driver David Coulthard, Max Verstappen revealed the method that has helped him stay neutral and steer clear of any negativity around on the track.

Max Verstappen tries to ‘keep neutral’ to avoid any kind of negativity

David Coulthard questioned Max Verstappen about how he kept himself focused on the track, despite the media controversy throughout the season. Max Verstappen revealed that he tries to stay neutral, so as not to be affected when someone has a negative opinion about him.

I always try to stay neutral, so when people are positive and nice to be heard, I don’t take it lightly. The same applies when everyone is negative, so when you’re always on a very equal footing, nothing can bother you. I think that’s very important throughout the year because in general there are two sides to everything. So when you stay neutral, nothing can affect you much,” said Max Verstappen.

Despite winning the championship in a controversial way, one cannot deny the fact how brilliantly Max Verstappen drove all season. It’s easy for someone as inexperienced as Max to succumb to pressure, but he managed to hold his ground and trail Lewis Hamilton even when the Mercedes was clearly the faster car.
