Verstappen: 'It doesn't often work like that in Formula One'

Max Verstappen had an excellent race in France on Sunday afternoon. The Dutchman had to work hard at the end of the race to overtake Lewis Hamilton, but eventually succeeded. As a result, he is further ahead in the world championship.

The Dutchman told Red Bull Racing's press release that he was very proud of the team. "Winning this race was an amazing Team effort and to have a double podium at a track like this really shows the hard work everyone is putting in here and in Milton Keynes at our factory and Honda’s. Of course, I would have liked to pull off into the distance and cruise ahead on my own but it doesn’t often work like that in Formula One."

"We really had to work for it today. You can see how close the two teams are and to win like this on strategy with two laps to go is very rewarding."

Red Bull in constructors' championship

Verstappen's victory not only means the Dutch driver increases his lead over Hamilton, Red Bull also does good business in the constructors' championship. While the Austrians are currently on 215 points, Mercedes have scored 178.
