Verstappen: 'I don't need goals to motivate myself'

Max Verstappen doesn't need specific goals to boost his motivation and would rather rely on his will to always try and do his best.

The Red Bull Racing driver is on the eve of his fourth season of Grand Prix racing, having started his career with Toro Rosso in 2015.

The 20-year-old's track record in F1 already includes three race wins, and while he'll be pushing to improve his tally he has not set any precise targets.

"You always try and do the best you can anyway," the Dutch prodigy said in a video preview of the 2018 season.

"I don't need particular goals to motivate myself because every race for me is a chance to win. Some of course are better for us than other tracks but that's what we have to find out with the new car."

Speaking of Red Bull's RB14 which will be unveiled on February 19, Verstappen is confident his 2018 charger will look quite the part although he reiterated his dislike of the Halo safety device.

Mort importantly however, he hopes his mount will be fast out of the box.

"The Halo, that will be very ugly, not looking forward to that," he said.

"In general, I hope the car will look great and hopefully it's fast and a good step forward, and that we've got straight away a good car from the beginning of the year, that we are not really chasing like we did last year.

"That's the most important for us."
