Max Verstappen’s Unyielding Desire to Win: His Greatest Strength and Weakness

Max Verstappen’s unwavering determination to win is a defining aspect of his personality. It’s a quality that has propelled him to three World Championships and marked him as one of Formula 1’s most formidable talents. However, according to Sky pundit Naomi Schiff, this unquenchable thirst for victory could also be his “Achilles’ heel.”

Verstappen has demonstrated his willingness to defy team orders when he believes it serves his best interests. One notable instance was in Sao Paulo last year when he refused to yield a position to his teammate Sergio Perez, despite Perez needing the points more than the already crowned world champion Verstappen.
