"I think it's great," he said. "I think, Formula 1, I've always felt that there weren't enough cars on the grid. There'll definitely be people that won't be happy for me to be so supportive of it, but I think it's great.
The Dutchman believes that although there are merits in adding an 11th team to the grid, he is aware that not everyone shares the same mindset.
"That is why it is very hard to comment on that because I speak from the drivers' side," Verstappen said.
"Of course I am not a team owner, but I can understand their side. But everything I have seen so far, plus I think the partners they have, and the name, they have shown that they are a professional team, so it would be I think nice because it gives more opportunities for the drivers' side.
"But I can understand it from the teams' side that they don't want it. So it is a tricky one, a tough one.
"At the end of the day the FIA, the teams and of course the FOM, they have more information about how serious everything is and how well everything is prepared. That is why it is not going to be an easy decision to make."
