Former world champion, Nico Rosberg believes that the driving style of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen is paying dividends at Dutch Grand Prix. The Dutchman was over a second fastest in the third practice session and was clearly able to deliver better than any other driver at Zandvoort. However, Rosberg pointed out just why Verstappen can be unbeatable. 

The former Mercedes driver pointed out Verstappen’s technique on turn 3 that banked the Dutchman much required time to supersede among the others. Due to the short length of Zandvoort, at just 4.259km, traffic could be an issue on the high-speed circuit. Rosberg says qualifying could get “really messy” so it will be important stay calm.

He [Verstappen] is flying out there, so if everything goes normal it’s going be difficult to beat him in qualifying today,” Nico Rosberg told Sky Sports. “Max Verstappen is just so much more aggressive [at Turn 3] and goes so much deeper into the corner, carrying more speed into the corner, and [he] still finds that grip mid-corner to then turn and get a similar exit [to his rivals]. 

“I wish we could see a little bit of a speed trace but I’m pretty sure it was just carrying the speed in, braking later… it’s just confidence. 

“If you make a small mistake there, you’re in the tyre barrier. That’s an area where Lewis Hamilton because he lost time yesterday, still has to build up towards. This track is just so difficult everywhere,” said Nico Rosberg. “It’s so many different corners that are impossibly difficult and really you can make a big difference as a driver. That’s exactly what Max is doing at the moment. He is driving the socks off that car in an incredible way.”
