Verstappen: ''I hope to take advantage of the mistakes at Mercedes''

Max Verstappen returns to the Barcelona circuit in 2020 as race winner, where the Dutchman took his first victory. How does the Dutchman look back on last week and what can be achieved during the GP of Spain?

''Actually during the race I was waiting for Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton to make a gap, but they didn't do it. They just couldn't keep up their pace last week and then of course I was able to get into my rhythm and finally control the race'', says the driver of Red Bull Racing according to the NOS.

Verstappen hopes for blisters

In Spain high temperatures are expected again, but of course we are on another circuit and again with the hardest tyre. ''Every team suffers from the high temperatures, because normally you drive here in May and then of course it's much cooler. I hope Mercedes will suffer from blisters again'', says Verstappen.

''Barcelona is very different from Silverstone, so you always have to wait and see what the proportions are like. We're also driving again with the hardest compound tyres, which we also had during the first weekend at Silverstone. So I'm assuming Mercedes will start in the front row. I want to be as close to it as possible and hopefully I can take advantage of their mistakes'', concludes Verstappen.
