Max Verstappen grabbed pole position at Zandvoort in front of his home fans, stating that it feels amazing to do that.
Verstappen was extremely happy after putting his Red Bull in pole position after qualifying. However, he said that he needs to finish the work by winning the race on Sunday.
“It’s an amazing feeling to get pole position here,” Verstappen stated after qualifying. “The crowd is incredible, the car is nice to drive and this track as well – it’s cool.”
Verstappen knows that it is not easy to overtake at Zandvoort, but he knows it is not going to be an easy race to win.
“It’s the best starting position, as passing will be difficult,” Verstappen added. “I don’t expect it to be an easy race as there are a lot of laps around here.
“The tires are struggling through the high speed [corners], but today was good, so I hope we can finish it off tomorrow.”
