The standout F1 2022 weakness Verstappen still needs Red Bull to address

OPINION: After his French Grand Prix victory and Charles Leclerc’s catastrophic crash, Max Verstappen’s points lead now sits at 63 – the largest it’s been so far in Formula 1 2022. But there’s still one area where he isn’t satisfied, which he needs Red Bull to fix.

Elite sportspeople don’t think like the rest of us. The Olympic triple jumper favourite for gold unable to look at the silver they ultimately received. The quarterback picked in the lower rounds of the NFL draft motivated more to beat the teams that passed on them. Formula 1 drivers are of the same mould. And the best take it even further.
