Erik ten Hag provides 'massive' verdict on Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen goes into the 2023 F1 season with his reputation enhanced by huge praise from another Dutch sporting icon.

Erik ten Hag on Max Verstappen

The former Ajax coach is flavour of the month now with his management style winning plaudits from all quarters. He definitely knows how to spot a winner, and above all that's what he sees from his countryman Verstappen.

He gave his verdict on the 25-year-old Red Bull superstar as Max prepares to begin his 2023 world title bid at the Bahrain Grand Prix this weekend.

"I don’t have tips for him (Verstappen) because he showed such massive performances," revealed ten Hag.

Verstappen - massive performances says ten Hag

"He is such a good driver but also such a great personality and such a winner, so he knows how to win. And I’m sure this year he will do the same."

While Verstappen is still only relatively young in F1 terms, he has been winning races since 2016. Ten Hag underlined the value and importance of that experience.

"He is young, but already so much experience as well, so we are really proud of him in the Netherlands, and I wish him good luck for the season and to [hopefully] bring again the world title to the Netherlands."
