The 23-year-old finished second in the most recent race which was the Eifel Grand Prix two weeks ago. 
The race won by Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton as he continued his dominance this season, while Daniel Ricciardo of Renault secured a third spot finish.

Verstappen feels that his car has improved through the year as he reflected on his performance at the Eifel Grand Prix. 
"The car has been improved through the year," Verstappen said.
"It was all about calming everything a bit down and connecting the rear with the front a bit more, and so far it seems to work. 
"It ended up understeering for once! We know at the start of the year a few things were not right and we tried to learn and try to make it better and improve for next year, and not make the same mistakes."
Mercedes are still placed at the top of Constructors' standings followed by second-placed Red Bull and third-placed Racing Point.
