The problems with Verstappen don't appear that different than what often occurs in pro sports. You get a young, very talented person come up who sometimes does as many stupid things as brilliant things. Generally, the organization that hired him will have a certain amount of patience hoping that the scale tips quickly and strongly in favor of the good things out numbering the bad. The one critical difference here is that mistakes in this sport don't just cost points, but can and have cost lives. If he continues to demonstrate poor decision making at high speeds I think he'll be replaced. The consequences are too serious and you can only push the odds so much.
