Max Verstappen had a tough weekend in Britain, where problems with his car meant he had to work hard to get it across the finish line. The next test awaits him this weekend.

In Austria, the Dutchman will be given the opportunity to quickly straighten his back and go for the win. The reigning world champion told in Red Bull Racing's press release that he is confident of a good result.

"It’s a really interesting track with not many corners," Verstappen said. "It’s a lot of fun to drive. The atmosphere is always great, I love seeing the fans in the grandstands and I think people in general just really enjoy the weekend there."

Verstappen exudes confidence

Verstappen is happy to have the weekend in England behind him. While he managed to drive up front in the early stages of the race, he had to settle for P7 due to damage to his car. It took a lot of strength for him to get six more points for his team.

"Silverstone was a tough race but we look ahead and hopefully we can have a good weekend and really maximise the points available over a Sprint weekend at our home circuit. I expect it to be a good weekend for us as a Team."
