“That’s both the best for the team and myself. If someone pushes me, I’ll drive faster. You have to work together to achieve the best result. But you always want to beat your team-mate, of course.”
Red Bull have won the last two races in Mexico which is the location of the event after this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix, but Verstappen has doubts they can repeat the feat for a third time due to Ferrari’s current form.
“You’d think so as we’ve won the last two,” he said when asked about Red Bull’s chances in Mexico.
“But this year will be more difficult because Ferrari is so fast on the straights. I don’t think it’ll be the same as other years.”
