After being challenged by McLaren, Ferrari and Mercedes four race weekends in a row, Red Bull Racing hopes the Grand Prix weekend in Spain will be easier. Max Verstappen would love to add a fourth victory to his name at the circuit where he won his first Formula One race. The Dutchman is also hoping for a dry weekend without too many unpredictable factors.

Verstappen aims to bring order to Spain

The F1 race near Barcelona is the first of a tripleheader and will be followed by the Austrian and British Grands Prix. "We are back to the European races for a while now and I have been with the Team at the factory this week preparing for the Spanish Grand Prix, being the first race of a busy triple header," Verstappen looks ahead to the upcoming race weekend.

"Barcelona will be the first race where I will be debuting my new orange helmet. As a tribute to my fans and all of their support, they are actually featured on helmet and I think the final design looks really cool and detailed. I have great memories from the circuit, especially winning my first Formula One race there," the championship leader said of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

"It has a good mix of high and low-speed corners and we have historically driven well there so hopefully we can maximise the performance of the car this weekend. We are aiming to keep the momentum going from Canada, so we are looking forward to racing this weekend and hopefully have some good weather," Verstappen concluded.
