Three-time Formula 1 world champion Max Verstappen has suggested that the dominance of Red Bull's car cannot be measured against other cars, denying that the pace of the RB19 was the main reason for his 2023 dominance.
He has said that he's 'not interested in the opinion of others', as the Dutchman refused to get into a discussion about his talent compared with other drivers.
Alongside team-mate Sergio Perez, the pair claimed every single race victory barring one throughout the season and wrapped up the championship double for their Red Bull team for the second year in a row.
Red Bull's historic car
Team principal Christian Horner recently described the RB19 as the 'most successful car in F1 history', prompting discussions about how much of Verstappen's success was down to the car.
