Anger maybe the key for Verstappen

Verstappen's inspired anger

Max Verstappen displayed some anger at last week's Canadian Grand Prix. The best moment we saw on how angry the 20-year-old can get was at last Thursday's press conference - when he threatened to head-butt someone if asked another question based on his performance at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Sky Sports F1 pundit Martin Brundle believes Kimi Raikkonen should leave Scuderia Ferrari at the end of this current season, to move out of the way for Sauber's Charles Leclerc ahead of the 2019 campaign. Leclerc, 20, is strongly linked to making a lucrative switch to the Italian team.

Your Formula 1 writer for Sportskeeda. Favourite race? I can't look past the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix. That race had everything in the space of four hours. Favourite track? Azerbaijan's street circuit has grown on me. The last two GPs have been more than dramatic. Favourite driver? I don't have a favourite but I'm currently enjoying the young talent of Charles Leclerc. A one to watch for the future. Any F1 talents? No one could come close to me on F1 2011 (the video game) and used to be able to make F1 car noises until they changed the engines in 2014 ;-)
