'Winning the championship' is the aim for Red Bull says Verstappen
Max Verstappen believes he is in a good place after signing a contract extension with Red Bull.
Red Bull remain some distance from their dominance of the early 2010's, but the rapid improvement shown from power unit supplier Honda across the past two years with Toro Rosso and then Red Bull have shown that title success may not be too far beyond the horizon.
“It’s just very nice to be in the team, it is really enjoyable, a lot of fun, which I think is also important in the team,” Verstappen told Motorsport.com. “Everybody gets along very well with each other. And we all want to win, we have the winners’ mentality.
“Everybody at the track and back at the factory, they are also motivated to show everyone that we can get back to those winning days of Red Bull dominating. We just want to try and recreate that.
“We’re all working on the same target. It is winning races, winning the championship.”
In 2019, Verstappen took victories in Austria, Germany and Brazil - two of which were heavily affected by the weather and safety car periods.
