Formula 1 | Verstappen can’t wait to ride Losail in real life

The last race in Brazil was much more difficult than what had been expected at Red Bull.

Max Verstappen had to bow to a supercharged Lewis Hamilton and a lightning-fast Mercedes F1. As he tackles the next Grand Prix in Qatar, the Dutchman admits that « it was a difficult weekend ».

« In general we were a bit behind Mercedes but nevertheless we only lost a few points so it’s not too bad. Of course, I still like to win, but we had a good fight and to finish second is good. We have three races to go so it’s about pushing and doing everything we can as a team to maximize performance on the track. « 

Has he been to Qatar before and is he impatient to go?

“I think I’ve only been to Qatar once for an awards show so I can’t wait to go back to drive this time. It’s a new track and we obviously never went. , so I can’t wait to see how it goes on the track, I hope we can perform well there. The track looks cool when you see a Moto GP race there! « 

Regarding his expectations before the race weekend, « It’s hard to say at the moment but we’ll see when we get there. »

« I drove a little in Losail on the simulator to understand the turns but it will be good to see the track in real life. The practice sessions will of course be very important so that everyone gets to know the speed and understand the settings. to adopt for the car. «
