Verstappen feels the pain: It is of course terrible

For Max Verstappen the qualifying on the Jeddah Corniche Circuit ended in tears. The Dutchman was doing a mega lap and was well below Lewis Hamilton's time, but in the last sector, he hit the wall.

"It’s of course terrible," was Verstappen's first reaction after qualifying. "We had a good qualifying, it was a bit hard to switch on the tyres around the street circuit but I knew the pace was there and it showed in the last lap."

He continued: "I don’t really understand what happened but I locked up and of course I tried to keep the car on the track and finish the lap, but I clipped the rear and I had to stop."

"P3 is a bit disappointing today of course, knowing what lap I was on, but nevertheless it shows that the car is quick, and let’s see what we can do in the race.
I don’t know. I stopped immediately, so let’s see," Verstappen concluded.
