“I am pretty relaxed, to be honest. I know it’s a tight battle but at the end of the day I can’t do more than my best, so I try to prepare the best way possible and enjoy it,” Verstappen continued. “The amount of times you are in a championship battle, I don’t know how many times that will be.
“Of course we are in the lead of the championship, six races to go, it is going to be difficult, it is going to be hard, but I always try to do the best I can.”
The battle between Hamilton and Verstappen continues on Sunday with the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.
