Father still involved in Verstappen's career

Jos Verstappen has admitted that while he has taken a step back, he is still closely involved in his son's meteoric F1 career.

It has been suggested that while Toro Rosso was happy for the former Benetton driver to be closely involved, Red Bull has asked Jos to take a step back now that Max has moved up to the top team.

"He (Max) already worked alone in Barcelona," Jos is quoted by Finland's MTV.

"I know he is ready for it -- he won the race so I think he is quite ready," Jos added.

"Whether my work is over? I don't think so. I still try to guide and coach him in the right direction," he said.

For his part, 18-year-old Max has admitted that a bit of luck played a role in his Barcelona breakthrough, but also true is that Red Bull legitimately beat Ferrari in Spain.

If that will still be the case in Monaco, Max was quoted by Finland's Turun Sanomat as answering: "We will find out in qualifying."
