“Hopefully not a second slower”
Max Verstappen goes into the UK GP with mixed feelings. But the Dutchman is by no means frustrated.
Max Verstappen is not frustrated
The big gap to Mercedes is worrying. Not much can be done to the cars in 2021. Isn’t that frustrating? Verstappen says no: “I come to the race weekends and try to get the best out of it. Of course I would like to go for victories every weekend. But that’s not the case at the moment. We have to learn from it and get better. But Mercedes also works hard. If we find something next year that takes us forward, that would be great. But I’m not sitting here and I’m frustrated. But yes: I want to win races. “
For teammate Alex Albon it is even more difficult: he is clearly slower than Verstappen. But he does not want to leave the criticism: “In the first weekend I fought for victory, in the second and third I finished fourth and fifth. So I don’t think that’s very bad. Of course there are still a few problems in qualifying and in race pace and there is still a bit more time in it. But overall I’m happy, ”said Albon.
