"I have no idea what he means," Verstappen told Sky Sports Germany at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
"I think this year has been so strong and every race he is 100 per cent there and that is the most important thing.
"Yesterday it was difficult in the third practice session but everything was perfect again in qualifying and that is the strength of Max but also of his racing engineer, who understands what he needs and that's just great."
Verstappen secured more than double the points of the next best in the standings, a feat no driver has ever achieved at the top of the motorsport.
