Verstappen didn't expect victory: ''We turned out to be very good on these tyres

Max Verstappen was able to seize victory during the second British Grand Prix of 2020 on Sunday afternoon. The Red Bull Racing driver started the race on the hard tyre and that resulted in him beating the Mercedes. It's the first victory for Verstappen in 2020. 

"I didn't expect this, but after the first stint we turned out to be good on the tyres. Didn't have a problem with the tyres, but you never know how it goes with Mercedes. Strategy went perfectly and actually, everything went well here,'' Verstappen said.

''We haven't had a chance to fight with them so far, so I really wanted to keep that pressure on them so that we could continue the attack. In Barcelona I don't know how it's going, but let's use the soft band there too,'' he concludes.
