Recently, Toto Wolff questioned why Sergio Perez was so much slower than Max Verstappen in the same car. Verstappen says Wolff’s comments are “bulls***”.

After the Dutch Grand Prix, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said it was “odd” that Sergio Perez was so much slower than Max Verstappen, when they’re both driving the same car.

“Bizarre,” Toto said.

“I mean, Checo is not an idiot. We have seen in all these years. Checo is a grand prix winner, a multiple grand prix winner. And he was [a winner] at Racing Point, so I cannot comprehend.

“I mean, we’ve seen Max has destroyed every single team-mate that was with him, whether it’s his ability to create a car around himself that is just very tricky to control, but fast if you can, and that makes those gaps.

“The 1.3s… I haven’t heard any obvious explanations, but… odd,” Wolff concluded.

When asked about these remarks, Verstappen proceeded to blast the Austrian.

“Bulls*** comments,” the Dutch driver said.

“It’s not like that. I just drive the car the fastest way possible. I’m not there to tell the guys to give me more because that’s how I like it.

“I just say ‘design me the fastest car and I’ll drive around that’, because every single year, every car drives a little bit differently.

“People ask: ‘What is your driving style?’ My driving style is not something particular. I adapt to what I need for the car to go quick.

“For me, what is very important is that you are able to adapt your driving style to what the car needs,” Verstappen concluded.
