Max Verstappen aiming for maximum points at Singapore Grand Prix

Max Verstappen is looking forward to the Singapore Grand Prix as the circuit should suit his car more than the high-speed tracks of Spa and Monza where Red Bull just didn't have the straight-line speed to be able to compete. 

"Singapore is a great track and the city looks amazing at night. I enjoy driving under the floodlights as it gives more character to the track and I really like this kind of weekend as it’s so different to a normal race," Verstappen said.

"The track is very demanding – it’s hot, it’s physical and you sweat a lot, but it’s one of my favorites. You have a lot of corners that are a mix of high and low speed, plus some medium-speed corners that have a little run-off, so it’s a very diverse circuit.

"It’s also a race where we tend to do better than say, Monza and Spa. I finished second there last year so hopefully, we can have another good weekend.

"Overtaking is very tricky so qualifying is the key, you have to nail it! I’m looking forward to having a more normal race weekend and hopefully not starting out of position again which always makes things more difficult. We’re aiming for maximum points and I’m really looking forward to it."

Verstappen has struggled since the summer break with engine penalties and crashes. He will hope to get back on the podium and back in the battle upfront.
