Faster than Racing Point
“We tried something different. Fortunately, we got through Q2 with those [hard] tyres. In the end, a fourth place is not quite as we wanted. You can clearly see that Racing Point has taken a step and it is of course nice that Nico starts in third place. It would be great if such a result could result in a seat for next year for him," says Verstappen at Ziggo Sport.
“Normally we are faster in the race. It didn't help that I have been riding on all kinds of different tyres soft, medium, hard, hard, medium," the Red Bull Racing driver laughs. “But in general not really had a top balance in the car with the wind. That is the same for everyone, but our car seems very sensitive to it. ”
Another strategy for Verstappen
Verstappen was asked if he would like to continue driving for as long as possible on the hard tyre he will start on tomorrow. "It's a different strategy, I don't think anyone is going for a one-stopper."
