Verstappen praises 'calm' race engineer: Having an argument isn't good

Many F1 drivers have been heard losing their cool over team radio, and Max Verstappen is no different. This is why the Dutchman values the calm approach taken by his engineer, Gianpiero Lambiase.

Max Verstappen has praised his race engineer, Gianpiero Lambiase, for remaining level-headed in moments where Verstappen might not be feeling so calm himself.

Lambiase – known as GP – is often heard to reply "understood, Max" to his driver over team radio, a response that avoids any possibility of a heated discussion.

This is a quality that Verstappen greatly values, given that he is aware of how engaging in an argument could have a negative effect.

"I have a lot of respect of sometimes how calm he stays," Verstappen told GP Racing. "When you are in the car your heart rate goes up, you're under pressure.

"Sometimes you have your moments where you speak up or raise your voice, but then if you also have from the other side someone raising their voice, you can end up in a massive argument on the radio while driving, which I don't think is good.

"We always talk about things. Also, when we have disagreements or whatever, we very easily get over it again, because at the end of the day, we have the same goal – we both want to win every single weekend, we want to try and have the best possible result.

"Yeah, sometimes, of course, that can get a bit emotional, but I think that is a part of racing."

Verstappen has been working with GP since joining Red Bull in 2016, and believes that their honest relationship bears similarities to those he shares with other members of the team, including Christian Horner and Helmut Marko.

This approach is something that the Dutchman thinks is of huge benefit to the squad.

"GP and I now have been working together for a few years," Verstappen explained.

"We have a very good and honest relationship, I think. He really understands what I need from the car, and also how I can feed back things to him.

"Of course, we have moments where we don't agree. But I think that's also wanted, because at the end of the day, you want to make each other better, and you want to make the car faster.

"It's good to be able to have discussions and come [up] with the best solution for it. We [are] also very honest to each other, like I am to Helmut and Christian. And I think that makes it so good."

It's time for the latest episode of the RacingNews365 podcast, with F1 journalists Dieter Rencken, Thomas Maher and Mike Seymour discussing the tense strategy battle between Mercedes and Red Bull and much, much more from the United States Grand Prix.
