Max Verstappen recalls having multiple issues during free practice.

Why it matters: The Red Bull driver struggled to beat the Mercedes cars during qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix.


  • Verstappen said having “more problems than what we wanted” during the first Free Practice this Friday.
  • Despite not being able to beat both Mercedes cars during qualifying, the Dutchman said he’s happy with his result.

What he had to say:

  • “We had some more problems in free practice than we wanted, but we recovered reasonably well during qualifying. I’m happy to be here as number three,” Verstappen said.
  • “For the race, hopefully, we can be a bit closer. We’re going to see in the second free practice if we can find some more speed for the long runs.”
