Verstappen threatens: “The car is getting better and better”


The Dutch pilot Max Verstappen (Red Bull) reiterated this Sunday that his car is “getting better” after taking victory, for the first time, in the Chinese Grand Prix.

The current world champion assured that it will be a “very strong weekend”where he had an “amazing” sensation: “It’s great to drive with all the compounds, the car is on the rails and I can do whatever I want with it.”

Verstappen joined critics of the duration of the start of the two safety cars: “It is less fun (…), more techniques are seen”.

Despite his success – he was also the best in the sprint race and in the classification – the current leader of the general classification claimed to have had some problems: “I crashed on the second restart (after the safety car went out) and two laps later I ran into some debris in turn would have been easy to pierce.”

In any case, the triple world champion finished almost 14 seconds before the second place, the British Lando Norris (McLaren), the only one who opted, with the Ferraris, for a one-stop approach.

Verstappen, who only suffered a sprint shootout due to rain that did not come out today, broke two records this weekend: he won pole number 100 for Red Bull and became the first driver since Finn Mika Häkkinnen (1999 ) who qualified first in the first five days of the year.

Looking forward to the next race, in Miami, he said: “Should be a good race for us“I’m excited for an intense weekend.”

The Shanghai event is the fifth day of the world championship after Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Australia and Japan, and precedes the Miami Grand Prix, which will be held on May 5 and will be the second weekend with a ‘sprint’ format season after, of course, that of China.
