Van der Garde: ''Verstappen would very much like to achieve a good result''

Formula 1 will start again, but the driver had to sit still for a while. The question now is whether men like Max Verstappen are as sharp as in Abu Dhabi. According to Giedo van der Garde we don't have to worry about that.

Verstappen is ready to go

"Those guys will be back to their old level in a couple of laps. In 2017 I stood next to them for a year and when I started again I was already in it after about ten laps. The drivers in F1 are all very eager and they have done a lot in the past period. After five laps in Austria they already have the good feeling'', says Van der Garde opposite Nu.nl.

The big favourite in Austria is Verstappen. The Dutchman won the last two editions and is also the top favourite with Van der Garde. ''This circuit suits him and the Red Bull very well, so you start the weekend with a lot of confidence. Verstappen will very much want to get a good result here to start the season well''.

Title for Red Bull

Starting at home is a luxury position for Red Bull Racing, which in recent years has often been slow to get started. This gap was never made up during the season, which is why Mercedes took the title every year. That could be different this year.

''It would of course be great if Verstappen can achieve two good results in Austria and keep that form for a long time. However, the teams will soon come up with updates, so the picture will change again during the season'', the former Formula 1 driver concludes.
