Verstappen remains positive after P8 in FP2: It was a good day for us.

In the second free practice Mercedes again dominated the lap times. According to Max Verstappen those times don't mean that much and they have confidence at Red Bull Racing.

During the first free practice session on Friday Max Verstappen managed third position, but in the second free practice session he didn't get any further than P8. Are there any problems at Red Bull Racing? According to the Dutchman it's not that bad. "I think it was a good day. The lap times don't say much because I broke my front wing in the fast lap. But we have confidence in ourselves," says Verstappen at Sky Sports F1.

There is always room for improvement

The Dutchman seems convinced that the 'black arrows' of Mercedes are not out of Red Bull Racing's reach during the first weekend in Austria. "There are always things we can do better. In general it was a good day and I'm looking forward to going back on the track tomorrow", Verstappen concludes.

Tomorrow he'll be back to work in the third free practice session, only to get back on track a little later for the first qualifying session of the season. Can he take pole position straight away in Spielberg?
