Max Verstappen feels that his performance has been improved since he decided to work on his own car setups.
The 19-year old initially decided to use the same setup as team mate Daniel Ricciardo when he made the move to Red Bull earlier in the year, but he has now revealed he is making his own adjustments.
"I think especially in the last few races I’ve been doing my own thing of course," he said, "because you start to understand more the car, and which way you want to work. Even there you’re experiencing new stuff, and definitely you’re heading more in the direction you want."
"I mean, when I just jumped in, I took all the settings of Daniel of course, the brake pedal, throttle pedal, steering wheel, all these kinds of settings, he added. "And at one point you start to change them a bit to your liking, what you like more, and I think that’s what I’m doing at the moment."
"Where I really turned it on was I think Malaysia, I changed some things in the car more to my liking, and it seemed to work. We’ll try to continue in that way."
