Max Verstappen finished second behind Valtteri Bottas during Sunday’s Turkish Grand Prix, stating that it was a difficult race.
- Verstappen finished ahead of his teammate Sergio Perez, who was in third.
- He said that tire management was critical and challenging.
What he had to say:
- “It wasn’t easy today, there was little grip on the asphalt. We had to manage the tires well and so we couldn’t really push. Valtteri just had a bit more speed and maybe he was a bit better on the tires today. However, I’m happy to be second here. In these conditions, a mistake is easily made and then you lose a lot of ground.”
- Most difficult task: “Staying awake [jokingly]. It was all about tire management. You could only push in the last laps before the pit stop, but I’m happy with the podium.”
