Max Verstappen praises the British Grand Prix and hopes Formula 1 keeps it

Max Verstappen hopes that the British Grand Prix remains on the Formula 1 calendar as he thinks it is one of the most iconic Grand Prix's of the year. The Dutch driver praises the British fans and thinks that they are incredibly passionate, which is good for the sport. Silverstone is close to the Red Bull base and the team will hope to impress in front of their fans. 

“Because our factory is just down the road it is another home race for the team so I hope we can continue our progress and put on a great show for everyone on Sunday,” Verstappen said to Crash.net. “A lot of great, fast corners is what we like and I can’t imagine the calendar without the British Grand Prix.

“I also know it pretty well after racing there in F3 before F1. I love to see all the British fans camping and supporting us in the grandstands. There is always a big turnout and they are definitely some of the most passionate F1 fans in the world.”

There have been rumours that Silverstone could fall of the Formula 1 calendar but it seems to be a too popular a circuit to be made redundant. 

Verstappen will hope to follow up his race win last time out in Austria with another podium performance this weekend.
