    Red Bull star Max Verstappen is totally focused on winning the Formula One title.

    Verstappen added: "The only winner is the one who finishes on top. It doesn't matter how many races you win.

    "So far I have had a great season. I've had a lot of wins, nice pole positions and exactly whatever happens at the end, it's not going to change my life, I've said it many times. I'm just enjoying what I'm doing.

    "Of course, I will try to win the championship and we are looking good. But I also said a lot of things can happen"

    Max Verstappen is loving his title fight with British superstar Lewis Hamilton because he is not too sure if it will happen again.

    Verstappen said: "Otherwise, it's pretty depressing, if you know that you can't win. Of course you know when you get to Formula One, you have to accept it.

    "This is how Formula One is. Normally there's only one or two teams that can fight for a championship.

    "But you hope that one day you get into a car where you can win, right? And as soon as you get into that car, it is very enjoyable.

    "You're happy, because how many times will you have this opportunity? You don't know, maybe from next year onwards, you never get that opportunity again.

    "So I'm just really enjoying the moment"

    Lewis Hamilton is not totally optimistic ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix.

    Hamilton said: "It doesn't play into your hands if they're quicker.

    "This is not a very good track for overtaking. Of course you've got that long straight, but I believe it's close to one of the hardest places for overtaking of the year.

    "I think you've got to have something like 1.1second advantage to have a 50 per cent chance of overtaking the car ahead"
