Netherlands - Max Verstappen has told his critics to "get used to" his on-track style.

The 18-year-old was the hot topic of conversation in the Monza paddock, a week after riling Kimi Raikkonen and many of his rivals at Spa.

Seeing a psychiatrist

Formula 1 legend Niki Lauda even urged the Dutchman to go to a "psychiatrist" to temper his aggression.

Appearing on the Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport Totaal, Verstappen said: "If I go, then we might as well go together."

As for Raikkonen's criticism, however, Verstappen added: "If I was Kimi, I would have said the same thing on the radio."

Verstappen said the criticism "doesn't change much for me - on the track, I do my own thing. Some actions may be viewed critically, but then they just have to get used to it, I guess."
