Max Verstappen has reflected on a challenging opening day of the United States Grand Prix.

Why it matters: The Dutchman was only the 8th quickest driver in FP2 as he had had issues with traffic, including an encounter with the championship rival Lewis Hamilton.


  • Verstappen admits that he does not know what has happened between him and Hamilton.
  • The Red Bull Racing driver believes that it is quite difficult to find right settings for the car.

What he had to say:

  • “I don’t know. I mean, we’re all lining up to go for a lap, so I don’t really understand what happened there.”
  • “But, overall, it’s not easy out there, the track is quite bumpy, and to find the right compromise with the car hasn’t been the easiest so far.”
  • “It didn’t particularly feel bad on the short run, it was just a mess with the traffic.”
