According to Red Bull Motorsport boss Helmut Marko, Verstappen’s victory in Monaco proves that the young Dutchman has reached a different level of maturity.

Last weekend, Max Verstappen inherited pole from Charles Leclerc for the Monaco GP and turned it into a clear afternoon in the Principality. The Dutchman managed to write one of the most prestigious F1 races to his name and that visibly pleased him and his team.

It is not easy to win a compliment from Red Bull motorsport boss Helmut Marko, but a victory in one of the most legendary places in motorsport even throws compliments. He praises Verstappen mainly for the maturity he displays.

“He has definitely reached another level of maturity,” Marko told ‘Sky’. “We kept him on his toes with fuel modes and the like, he had a lot of work to do.”

“When he started asking who had the fastest lap and what time, we immediately blocked him and said, ‘Forget all that!’”

During the final phase of the race, Lewis Hamilton came in for fresh rubber and managed to set the fastest lap of the race. That earned him an extra point for the world championship, but that was not enough to prevent Max Verstappen from taking the lead in the standings for the World Cup.

“We haven’t had a podium here with Max yet, although we did have a car that could win twice, Ricciardo has proven that after all,” said Marko.

“I think this is an extra relief for him. It should make its performance even more confident and controlled. ”

“That is also very, very important for the future,” Marko concludes
