With 3 victories in 3 Grand Prix that he was able to finish, Max Verstappen is for the moment untouchable when his car does not fail him, as in Bahrain or Australia.
There are always things we can do better, and I think right now the main thing for us is reliability, so we’ll just try to get the upper hand first.
And there is no doubt that these problems are quickly resolved:
I think we just have a team that’s working really well on track, but also back at the factory, it’s very efficient, and I think, of course, the cost cap is very important. But I think we’re definitely one of the best on the grid with that. It’s a long season and I know it’s all going to be about car development anyway. So, step by step, each race.
The Spanish Grand Prix already promises to be spectacular, the majority of the teams will bring improvements to their cars. The Ferrari of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr should be greatly improved, which does not disturb Max Verstappen:
I expect us to do well here, but of course you have to wait and see what the other teams bring. We’ll see, I’m quite relaxed.
