Max Verstappen has revealed that his relaxed mindset is what enables him to extract the most out of himself on track in Formula 1.

The Dutchman has become one of the most successful drivers in the championship, breaking multiple records on the way to winning his third Drivers' World Championship.

While his record of 10 victories in a row might seem effortless in the dominant RB19, Verstappen concedes that it is not easy to achieve.

"You have to be very consistent over a season and basically, you cannot really have off days off weekends. You have to be all that, all the time," he told the Red Bull Mind Set Win podcast.

"That's not always easy to achieve. Sometimes weekends they start tougher for you, but it's about how you try and get yourself out of a tough situation."

Verstappen: There is so many people out there who work differently

Drivers often speak about having a mental edge over competitors, but for Verstappen it is a case of staying calm in what can be a stressful environment.

"I'm the person who was like 'Well, we'll see what happens' And then one week, two weeks, I'm not really too worried about it," he explained.

"I just want to enjoy the current moment and I'll worry about what comes in two weeks at that time.

"Every person works differently, so it's not like one thing works for me that will work for someone else.

"That's also the beauty of the sport and life in general, right? There's so many different people out there who work very differently. But at the end of the day, they can achieve very similar things."
