Max Verstappen had to start from last after crashing his RB14 in FP3 but the Dutchman still finished within the points, but he realises that mistakes like the one in FP3 will be a good lesson for the future.

Two points is not much compared to his teammate Daniel Ricciardo who got all 25, but it's at least something to hold on to for Verstappen.

"I let everything go in front of me," he analyzed when talking to Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport.

"There was a lot flying around there.

"Although I did get past the Haas cars nicely at the start.

"Things got congested after that, but after my stop, I could carry on - my tyres were done before that.

"On the hypersofts it went well and it was a question of opportunity."

Looking back on his crash in FP3 which effectively cost Verstappen a potential pole and/or a very good result, he was short in his answer.

"You need those moments to get better.

"It happens, a year in which things don't go well.

"That's better than a situation where you're not quick enough.

"Now it's on to the next race."
