Three-time world champion Max Verstappen has said that his long-term Formula 1 future will rely on 'how long I want to be here', rather than how long he feels he can perform at the best of his ability.
Verstappen: 'I think I have quite a few more years left'
Having won three titles by the age of 26, it's not inconceivable to think that Verstappen could reach the heights of Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton, who both hold the record of seven world championships.
Asked by the F1 Nation podcast how much more there is to come from him, Verstappen said:
“Personally, I’m still young even though I’ve been in F1 for a while, I think I have quite a few more years left in me to be able to operate at my best but yeah we’ll see how long that is to be honest.
“I think it’s more about how long I want to be here and that’s different,” he concluded.
