Formula 1: Max Verstappen says Red Bull speed suits him

Sixteen year-old Max Verstappen says the speed of F1 suits him after taking a test drive in a Red Bull car in Austria as he prepares to become the youngest driver in the sport's history.

The son of former F1 driver Jos Verstappen will race for Toro Rosso next season in place of Jean-Eric Vergne and his father is "very pleased" that he is heading in "the right direction".

Although he will be racing against the likes of Lewis Hamilton next season, Verstappen Jnr will still not be able to drive on the roads in his native Netherlands unsupervised until he is 18.
