Last weekend was the fourth outing in Jeddah for Formula 1, and Verstappen became the first driver to achieve multiple wins at the circuit.

Red Bull drivers give young hopefuls advice

“I think a lot comes down to education and guidance," Verstappen said post-race.

“The more help and support that there will be from people with a lot of experience, the more that you can grow it here and the passion. So that takes time.”

Sergio Perez, one of only two Mexican drivers to ever win in F1, also offered different advice to young drivers.

“You have to go to Europe at a very young age,” Perez said “That would be my best advice. Try to grow up as soon as possible on the racing side."
