“Yeah, I mean, of course it’s amazing what we’re experiencing within the team. I think we’re having an amazing year and it’s important to enjoy it as well," Verstappen said after the Italian Grand Pix.
"We’ve had a lot of different challenges of different kinds of tracks and now the car seems to work at every single kind of track and we are extremely pleased. I need a bit of luck for that as well, and I don’t think about it. 
"I just want to go to Singapore and try to win that race as well, just have a good time. We are having a great season, so we should also really appreciate it and just enjoy the moment. We want to win more as a team, so we’ll try that.”
