Max Verstappen: ‘At the moment we are better than last week’

The dutch Max Verstappen (Red Bull) which will start second this Sunday at the Styrian Grand Prix, the second in the Formula One World Championship, to be held, like the first in the Austrian Red Bull Ring, declared this Saturday at the Spielberg circuit that the position obtained “is fine”.

“It was not easy, because you had to ride on the least wet footprint on the track,” explained ‘Mad Max’, 22, who this season could still become the youngest world champion in history if he manages to dethrone the English Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), six times winner of the contest and that this Sunday will start from the ‘pole’.

“Second place is fine. The last lap could have been better, but the pace was good, so I am satisfied,” said the Dutchman, who retired last Sunday due to an electrical fault in the circuit owned by his team, in the one that had won the previous two years.

“In the rain you don’t see anything, especially if you’re going behind another car, but that’s the same for everyone in these circumstances,” he said.

“To see how the race unfolds if it is finally dry; but for sure, at the moment, we are better than last week,” said, after qualifying this Saturday at the Red Bull Ring, Max Verstappen.
