Peter Windsor has analysed the free practice sessions in Belgium and quickly comes to the conclusion that everyone is shocked by Max Verstappen's speed. Not just Verstappen, but all of Red Bull Racing looks strong in his opinion.

Verstappen and title rival Charles Leclerc have been relegated to the back of the grid on Sunday due to multiple penalties. Qualifying will decide which of the drivers will have to start furthest back.

Verstappen with very fast pace

"I guess starting P19 might be better than starting P20 though at the moment Max Verstappen's pace has got everyone completely psyched out," Windsor said in his YouTube video. Verstappen needed just one lap on the soft tyres to set a lightning-fast time.

Leclerc also seemed shocked by that time. "Wow, that's quick," the Monegasque sounded over the on-board radio after hearing the Dutchman's time. "Of course because he had done the quickest lap he could've done at that point," stated Windsor, who added that Red Bull are looking strong in Belgium.
