I am a big fan of his. He sounds like Kimi, with the Finnish monotone...but he actually listens to the interviewer questions and answers them sincerely and completely. I hope he does not get jaded.

...however I do look at Max Verstappen and think that, so long as his success doesn't go to his head that is.

He looked very good in this first season, but so did his teammate Sainz. Did Toro Rosso really suddenly end up in the same season with the two greatest drivers since Hamilton and Vettel arrived? I will reserve judgment until we have more data. Added to that, his dad has a checkered history with anger, spousal abuse, etc. Has the apple fallen far from the tree? That resounding "no" he gave to team orders makes me wonder.
