  Only one driver secured a podium finish in each of the last five races - and he wasn’t in a Mercedes or a Ferrari.

  Red Bull’s Max Verstappen has had a stunning end of the year and with Honda coming onboard next season, he’s feeling pretty good about his prospects in 2019… Third place in the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was enough to haul Verstappen above Valtteri Bottas – in the championship-winning Mercedes – into a career-best fourth in the drivers’ standings.

  In the final six races of the season, only Verstappen and Hamilton scored more than 100 points.

  Verstappen’s achievement is particularly impressive, given the power deficit from Red Bull’s Renault engine, and sets things up nicely for the next campaign.

  “First we still need to build a great car, and then the engine should be reliable as well, and be powerful, which I think it will be there but first we do winter testing and then we’ll see."
