China a turning point for Verstappen says Haug
China could have been a turning point for Max Verstappen, according to former Mercedes boss Norbert Haug.
Undoubtedly a young sensation, the Dutchman came under intense scrutiny after the race in Shanghai a fortnight ago following his clash with Sebastian Vettel.
F1 legend Niki Lauda even questioned Verstappen's "intelligence".
Former Mercedes chief Haug told Sport Bild: "I would not be surprised if that was not a key experience that will now help him to act with calculated aggression rather than crashing into rivals and wearing his tyres out."
