Max Verstappen believes it is best to 'draw a line' under Red Bull's recent boycott of Formula 1 broadcaster Sky Sports.

In the Mexican Grand Prix weekend, the World Champions elected to snub all Sky-affiliated broadcasters over comments made by reporter Ted Kravitz about the nature in which Verstappen has won his two titles.

As a result, no Red Bull driver or personnel appeared on Sky's weekend coverage through the usual post-session interviews, although a pre-recorded segment with Sergio Perez did air.

Red Bull indicated that the snub was only for the Mexico weekend, with Dutchman Verstappen keen to move on.

"We drew a line under it, and so we just keep on going, I'm looking forward," he explained to media, including RacingNews365.com, ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix.
