As Kravitz has now revealed that despite being team-mates with Perez, such is the cut-throat nature of F1, that Verstappen was not best pleased when the Mexican claimed victory in Saudi Arabia at the start of the season.

Kravitz: Perez annoyed Verstappen

“The relentless nature of the pursuit of perfection, and that was it,” Kravitz told the Sky Sports F1 podcast regarding Verstappen and Red Bull's season. “They never gave up, and he never wanted to give up being perfect.

“And, you know, there were some races that showed that you have to be perfect. Max had to be perfect.

“There was enough of competition left for them to be caught if they had slipped up in any way.

“And Max himself hadn’t got to grips with a car in Azerbaijan and in Saudi Arabia, which Checo won, but after that it was as if those disappointments and those annoyances, and remember how annoying it was after Saudi – do you remember the Checo celebration and Jos not wanting to say well done to Checo – so he was really annoyed.

“Max was really annoyed. And that’s what made him carry on so relentlessly for perfection.”
