Verstappen had meeting with Ecclestone

Bernie Ecclestone is determined to introduce changes in formula one.

The unlikely source of that information is Max Verstappen, the youngest driver in F1 history.

The Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf claims the 17-year-old sat down for his first one-on-one, face-to-face meeting with the F1 supremo in Austria, inside the 84-year-old's famous paddock motor home.

Verstappen said it was a "nice get-together".

"I had met him before, but he comes across as a nice guy," the young Dutchman said.

"Did he say anything about me? Yes, he said I'm doing well and I need to keep it up."

Verstappen also admitted he and Ecclestone spoke about the future of F1, and "According to him there are some good things coming, but what exactly it is he didn't tell me".
