Verstappen wants to give everything to win: 'Won't be an easy race'

Max Verstappen will start from pole position today at the United States Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton will start from second place, so it will be exciting to see which of the title rivals will be first through turn one. In any case, Verstappen is looking forward to the race and is confident in his Red Bull.

"Yesterday was a lot of fun, but I know that today is the most important day. I am going to give it everything I've got to try and win the race. I just need to focus on myself and try to do everything perfect. I don't expect it to be an easy race. I’m just excited to get started", the Dutchman says during the F1 Build-Up.

Verstappen has already had some good starts this season, so how important is it to get through turn one first in Austin? "That is what you will like, but I also know that its a long race and a lot of things can happen, but we will make sure that is going to be the case."

Verstappen happy with the balance in the car

Where Red Bull are losing time compared to Mercedes is not yet entirely clear to Verstappen. "I don't know yet. We will find out throughout the race, but I’m confident we have a good balance in the car and that’s of course very important."

Verstappen also says a few words in Dutch. "Yesterday was obviously a very positive day, all weekend. Today is the most important day and hopefully we can compete for the win."
