F1: Verstappen not bothered by youngest F1 pole record

Max Verstappen insists becoming the youngest F1 driver in history to claim a pole position is “not a big deal” to him.
After missing out on pole position to Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo by just 0.026s in Mexico, Verstappen lost what was regarded as his best chance to make F1 history by becoming the sport’s youngest polesitter.
“For me I was not really after the youngest pole record,” Max Verstappen said.
Verstappen’s failure to secure pole led to an angry response from the Dutchman, though he claimed his frustrations were instigated by engine problems in qualifying, coupled with Ricciardo’s subsequent celebration.
