Red Bull driver Max Verstappen says he will stop speaking his mind on the team radio as it makes him sound arrogant to the millions of TV viewers at home.During the U.S. Grand Prix, Verstappen was attacking Nico Rosberg for third place when he was told by his engineer to look after his tyres for the rest of his stint. He replied saying Im not here to finish fourth before his pace behind the Mercedes started to drop off ahead of his next pit stop.Asked about the radio exchange, Verstappen said: I think I am going to take my radio button off! No radio for me anymore!As a driver I always want to go forward, I want to win, so I was trying to get past. I did it with Kimi as well because that was like I arrived and got past, but with Nico it didnt really work out. At the end of the day, I did damage my left front a bit but it was not that bad.The thing is, all the time I press my radio button it is broadcast and sometimes it sounds a bit arrogant - especially the Im not here to finish fourth - and that is just what comes up in my mind. I am not there to finish fourth at the end of the day, I am there to win as a racer but on the radio it sounds I am arrogant and not listening to the team, but it is not like that.Verstappen had another mix-up over team radio later in the race when he came into the pits before his team was ready to change the tyres on his car.You always have a bit of code messages and we spoke about some things, Verstappen explained. The main thing was I think after driving an hour in the car, you get into a comfort zone, an auto-pilot, so I saw Daniel box the lap before so I thought because we were so close together I would box the next lap. I think that is where it went wrong. I was thinking a bit too much for myself.

NEW YORK -- After considering skipping the U.S. Open because of injury concerns, Novak Djokovic made it all the way to the final for the sixth time in the past seven years.He came up short of the title, though, settling for his fifth runner-up showing at Flushing Meadows because, by his own admission, he got tight at key points -- and not because of the physical distress he dealt with down the stretch, including bleeding toes that were treated by a trainer.Most glaring of all during a 6-7 (1), 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 loss to Stan Wawrinka on Sunday was this statistic: Djokovic, one of the greatest returners of his, or any, generation, converted only 3 of 17 break chances.I lost my nerves in the important moments. He kept his cool. I think thats what decided the match, said Djokovic, the No. 1 seed and defending champion. I guess sometimes it happens, even though you have the experience and know what to do. Just the heat of the moment and importance of the match, I guess, was too strong for me at certain periods of the match. Just if you lose your cool, the match can go away.Its a rather startling admission from someone who owns 12 major titles and a career Grand Slam, who has spent more than 200 weeks at No. 1 in the ATP rankings, who was the first man to exceed $100 million in career prize money in tennis.And, especially, someone who earlier this season was considered close to unbeatable. Until losing in the third round at Wimbledon against Sam Querrey, Djokovic had won 30 consecutive Grand Slam matches, becoming only the third man -- and first in nearly 50 years -- to win four consecutive major titles.But Djokovic acknowledged that he became too passive at pivotal segments of the match against No. 3 Wawrinka, who collected the third major trophy of his career and first at Flushing Meadows.He was more courageous, because he stepped in and played aggressive, Djokovic said, where I was kkind of more waiting for things to happen.ddddddddddddNever was that more apparent than when Djokovic was returning serve. Over and over again, he would get an opening to break Wawrinka, and over and over again that opportunity went by the wayside.Coming into Sunday, Djokovic had won nearly 50 percent of his return games in the tournament. Against Wawrinka, he only managed to win 3 of 22.Terrible conversion of the break points, Djokovic said. Just terrible from my side.He has appeared in 21 Grand Slam finals, second in the history of mens tennis only to Roger Federer, but now has a record of 12-9 in those all-on-the-line matchups.That includes a 2-5 mark at the U.S. Open, where Djokovic won the titles in 2011 and 2015, but lost to Federer in 2007, to Rafael Nadal in 2010 and 2013, and to Andy Murray in 2012.Late Sunday evening, Djokovic was asked to assess his season, which includes a 56-6 record, along with titles at the Australian Open, French Open and five other tournaments. He picked up a sore left wrist shortly before a first-round loss at the Rio Olympics last month, then dealt with problems with both shoulders and his right elbow over the past two weeks, before the foot issues in the final.Winning two out of four Grand Slams is a pretty good year, and playing another final -- I have no complaints. Obviously I wish that I could win another title, but this is what it is. You have to shake hands and accept the loss from a better player and move on, Djokovic said.Its not the first time, its not the last time Im going to lose a match. Big match, he continued. Hopefully I can learn from it. Hopefully I can get better, because thats the cycle of life, I guess, for us athletes.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich ' ' '
