Former Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg says Max Verstappen is the dictionary definition of a narcissist. Rosberg says the Red Bull driver's error-prone start to the previous season is evidence of his overflowing self-confidence, but says it also can act as a positive.
Verstappen hit a fellow driver or barriers in each of the opening six races of the previous season, eventually recovering to finish fourth in the drivers' standings.
And though Rosberg believes arrogance might have contributed to Verstappen's errors, he says it can also be a "powerful force" for good.
