Verstappen refuses to clarify: ''That is nobody's business''

Max Verstappen is not expecting miracles during the Russian Grand Prix. Verstappen has admitted third is probably the best he can expect but anticipates McLaren and Racing Point to be on his tail.

Verstappen wants to go to the stage

Verstappen does not leave with good memories of his visit to Italy. The races at Monza and Mugello ended for the Red Bull Racing driver sooner than he would have hoped. No podium, no points, but simply two DNFs behind his name.

''I don't expect a miracle in Russia. Normally third place is the highest possible, but I expect McLaren, Renault and Racing Point to be very close," Verstappen told NOS and others. Honda said earlier that Verstappen's problems have been solved and the Dutchman now confirms that.

Conversations with Honda

"The problem of Monza had already been solved, that in Mugello was a bit different. I am not going to say exactly what was wrong, because that is nobody's business. It had to do with the software and they solved it. We sat down well together and discussed this at length. Of course, I do not have to tell Honda that dropping out three times in nine races is not great. They know that themselves," said Verstappen, who states that the relationship with Honda is still good.

''You have to be honest with each other and explain things. The noses are in the same direction, because we want to fight for podiums and victories. I hope they continue."
