Verstappen's praises Honda's hard work ahead of British GP

Max Verstappen has commended Red Bull and Honda after upgrades allowed him to compete closer to the front, leading to his victory in the last race in Austria.

The Dutchman has shown extreme consistency this season, finishing every race in the top five and he deserved the win at the Red Bull Ring in June.

Attention now turns to Silverstone and the British Grand Prix and Verstappen is looking for another positive result.

He said: “I’m looking forward to Silverstone, especially after our win in Austria last weekend.

“It was a really special moment for everyone in the team and for Honda – all the hard work is beginning to pay off.”

It seems to a common theme among F1 drivers that Silverstone is a good track to drive, and Verstappen shares this opinion.

He added: “I really enjoy Silverstone because of the high speed corners, Becketts and Maggots being my favourite, and it’s great fun to drive.

“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.

“A lot of great, fast corners is what we like and I can’t imagine the calendar without it.

“Because our factory is just down the road [in Milton Keynes], 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."
