Max Verstappen is ready to fight for victory in Barcelona this coming weekend. In a Red Bull Racing press release, the driver says he is looking forward to getting started in Spain and is confident of a good result.

After a rough start to the season, Verstappen is now on a roll with the Austrian racing team. After the win in Imola he also managed to finish the race in Miami victorious, which means he has now crept closer to Charles Leclerc in the world championship.

"We had an incredible week in Miami," stated Verstappen. "I’ve had some time to rest with my family since and now I’m looking forward to driving in Barcelona again. I have a lot of good memories at the track from my first win in Formula One back in 2016 when I was 18."

The Dutchman is referring to his first race in action for Red Bull. Partly due to a clash between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, who were competing together to win the world title, Verstappen managed to get an immediate victory.

Verstappen wants a good result in Barcelona

He hopes to achieve the same result this weekend. "Unlike Miami, we have a substantial amount of data to use ahead of the race. Hopefully, we can keep the momentum going from the last few races with a clean start from Friday onwards."
