During the interviews before the Grand Prix of Las Vegas there was this funny moment. Max Verstappen was being interviewed but when they asked about Charles Leclerc the Red Bull driver spotted him in the back and invited him to join the conversation. It turned into this funny situation.

Ted
Because first I’m going to ask you what you’re getting Christian for his 50th birthday. A big number. He’s an old man now.

Max
Well, hopefully another win because I know that he will like that the most. I mean, I can give him anything but winning a race probably is more important to him anyway.

Ted
So in the way of trying to do that, how are you thinking in terms of the characteristics of this car takes a while for the tires to get going sometimes, especially in qualifying. Are you thinking that guy behind you might have a better chance, a shot at qualifying, the way they could get the tires going?

Max
I don’t know, you should ask him.

Ted
I will, in a second.

Max
Charles, can you come in?

Charles
Yes, I’m here.

Max
Can you repeat the question?

Ted
The way you can get your tires nice and hot immediately, the way that the Red Bull brings the tires in the race a bit slower?

Max
It’s like we massage the tires.

Charles
You do massage your tires, but it’s cold here, so I don’t know if you’ll have to massage the tires…

Max
More aggressive massage

Charles
More aggressive. Where this is our strength.

Max
We will do a hot stone massage this time. But instead of relaxing more…

Charles
I think they still have the upper hand. For sure.

Ted
In the race or qualifying?

Charles
I think both. But maybe in quali… we never know. We think we are going to be strong here. What do you think?

Max
I don’t think too much.

Charles
Just drive. Okay, let’s see.

Ted
Okay, brilliant. That’s it for me.

Things really have changed lately including the critism on the Red Bull driver. We all know the opinion of Eddie Jordan towards the young Dutchman but even he is impressed these days. He made this very clear when he said Verstappen will become better than Senna, Schumacher and Hamilton as you can hear in this part of a podcast with David Coulthard.
