Verstappen: 'There are stretches where I see Mercedes as the stronger one'

Looking back at his dream start and increasing lead in the championship Max Verstappen says he is extremely satisfied with the course of his season. However, he does take into account that the battle can remain exciting until the very end.

"We got off to a really good start this season, and I'm very grateful for that", Verstappen began in conversation with Speedweek. "But now we have to keep our foot on the accelerator. We don't have to think about the results that are behind us, but about the races that are coming."

Excitement until the end

Despite his dream start, Verstappen is guarding against an exciting battle until the final race. "I am assuming that it will remain a close race at the top. Well, we were stronger in Austria and we were able to win in France because we did everything right tactically. But the Le Castellet race in particular showed that it could have turned out differently", said the Dutchman.

Verstappen concludes as follows: "There are stretches on which I classify Mercedes as stronger. However, I have all the world's confidence in my team - all the ingredients are there to maintain the top. "
