Max Verstappen has spoken about a difficult first day of the Turkish Grand Prix at Istanbul Park.

Why it matters: The Dutchman was 2nd in FP1 and 5th in FP2.


  • Verstappen reveals that the team needs to find solutions to improve the pace.
  • Lack of data might complicate the process of finding a better set-up.

What he had to say:

  • “We tried a few things compared to FP1, but also FP1 wasn’t that great. So we are still looking around a bit at what to do.”
  • “Of course, it’s a bit different here [in Istanbul]. We don’t have a lot of data from here with these kind of cars. So it seems like we have a bit of an evening ahead to try and make it a bit better, because today wasn’t the best of days.”
