Max Verstappen was in top form on the weekend in poor conditions at the Brazilian GP, completing what has already been described as one of the best performances in the sport's history.

The 19-year-old eventually finished in third on the day, but a podium finish looked unlikely throughout the race, in particular during the later stages, as he entered the final 10 laps sitting back in 15th place. 

Speaking to Sky Sports, Red Bull boss Christian Horner hailed the teenager's incredible comeback, saying: "That was one of the best drives I've seen in Formula 1."

With rain making for poor visibility and tricky driving conditions, Verstappen twice had to pull in to the pits in order to change his tires, and nearly paid the price when he aquaplaned at one stage in the race. 

However, he managed to stop his car from spinning out of control and heading into the barrier with a superb piece of skill. On the audio between him and his team in this replay, you can hear Verstappen saying, as cool as a cucumber, that "the heartbeat went a bit higher there."

However, the Dutch commentary on the incident as it happened is slightly more exciting. The commentator on Ziggo Sport has some choice words to describe what he has just witnessed as Verstappen pulls back from the brink of disaster without breaking a sweat.

You don't need to speak any Dutch to understand what he's saying, but you might have to pardon his French, if you follow. In other words, the video contains explicit language.
