Red Bull warned: 'Verstappen’s dissatisfaction to quickly come to surface'

Max Verstappen saw the gap to Charles Leclerc shrink considerably in recent races. However, Red Bull Racing's car still does not look completely reliable. According to Scott Mitchell, the Austrian racing team needs to fix this quickly, otherwise Verstappen will have something to say about himself.

Sergio Perez was hoping to fight for a podium finish in Miami, but problems with the car prevented the Mexican from using the full power of his car. It caused Perez to have to settle for fourth position despite having fresher tires.

Verstappen keeps Red Bull on its toes

For Verstappen, the fear remains that the same will happen to him in the coming races. The Dutchman had to deal with no less than two scrapes in the first three races, which caused him to lose a lot of points compared to his competition. He hopes to maintain his current form in the coming period.

"If Red Bull doesn’t, expected Verstappen’s dissatisfaction to quickly come to the surface," Mitchell writes for The Race. "The most painful problems left him playing catch up in a big way early in this season and he knows he cannot afford further issues derailing his recovery."
