“For me, finding that balance and being happy in life, that makes you a better driver and you just take on the experiences you had from the year before – the good and the bad things – and you try to do better the year after and that’s how I go on every year.”
Verstappen has finished third in the drivers' standings over the last two years. Last season he ended the campaign with a morale-boosting win in the final race in Abu Dhabi.
While declaring his desire "to do better" each year, Verstappen is not the type of driver who overanalyses his performances.
“Honestly, I think it [improvement] just comes naturally," added Verstappen.
"It’s not like I have a notebook, go home and I am like ‘How do I need to go faster?’ and I go through a notebook."
