Verstappen expecting a lonely race on Sunday

Max Verstappen is tevreden na zijn eerste dag op het circuit van Silverstone voor de tweede Britse Grand Prix van 2020. De Red Bull Racing-rijder stelt een 'prima' vrijdag achter de rug te hebben, maar hij verwacht wel een saaie wedstrijd op de zondag. Volgens hem is Mercedes opnieuw ongenaakbaar.

"It was a fine Friday. We were able to finish our program. I am happy with that," Verstappen told his own website. 

The fact he didn't manage to finish in the top-two today doesn't come as a surprise. "The gap to Mercedes is still big, but that was expected. You can't catch up in a couple of days."

Two-stoppers most likely

With Pirelli's softer tyres Red Bull does face a challenge. A one-stopper seems out of the question. "The degradation is much bigger, so that's going to be interesting. I think a one-stopper is almost impossible, so I expect a lot of two-stops during the race," the eight-time race winner explained.

"I think it's going to be a lonely race again," he concludes.
