Max Verstappen no longer has the element of surprise, and all eyes will be on the Dutch driver when the Formula One season gets underway at the Australian Grand Prix on Sunday.The Red Bull driver has already made Formula One history as the youngest to win a race and the youngest to qualify on the front row of the grid. He also completed a record 78 overtaking moves during the 21-race season.Verstappen antagonized senior drivers like Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen with his brazen attitude last season.Instead, Verstappen chastised Vettel over the radio after an incident during one race and mocked Vettel's frustration because of his difficult season with Ferrari.With three-time champion Lewis Hamilton into his 30s and Vettel turning 30 in July, F1 will be counting heavily on Verstappen in the years to come.Mercedes never imposed team orders on Hamilton and Rosberg until the season-ending Abu Dhabi GP, which Hamilton ignored anyway as he tried -- and failed -- to stop Rosberg clinching the title.
