Max Verstappen admits that it is still unclear whether he will have a new power unit at the Russian GP.

Why it matters: The Dutchman is on the verge of getting a grid drop due to the engine change and Sochi Autodrom is a likely option.


  • Verstappen believes that the decision depends on his performance during the race weekend.
  • The Red Bull driver also thinks that tricky weather at Sochi might make an impact.

What he had to say:

  • “I think we have to wait and see a little bit throughout the weekend, see what’s happening and how competitive we are as well. Nothing has been fully decided yet.”
  • “Of course, we have to take that [weather conditions] into consideration, but also I think we just have to wait and see how competitive we are.”
