Max Verstappen admits that second place would have been the maximum result he could have achieved at the Russian GP should he had started up front.
- Verstappen managed to score a second-place finish at the Russian GP after starting last due to a PU change penalty.
- The Dutch driver admits second place would have been the maximum result he could have achieved even starting from the front row.
What he said:
- “We made the right decision with that change to the intermediates. That’s why we ended up second, which of course I’m extremely happy with.”
- “To be honest, I think if I had just started at the front this would have been the maximum result as well. So in the end we didn’t lose anything at all.”
