The engineer was present when the Dutchman won his first ever world title following a controversial victory over Lewis Hamilton at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Verstappen told Ziggo Sport: “I have said to him I only work with him. As soon as he stops, I stop too.

“Of course, we can be pretty strict with each other sometimes, but I want that too.

“He has to tell me when I’m being a jerk and I have to tell him. I always told him that.

“He can tell me that on the radio as well, but it’s been going really well lately.

“The last few years I tried to be the engineer and he tried to be the driver.”

Verstappen has previously revealed what a calming influence Lambiase is during a race.

And that is why the pair have formed a strong relationship which has grown on and off the track.

And that bond helped the 24-year-old star win the title after he beat Hamilton on the final lap of the campaign.
