Max Verstappen has claimed victory of the United States Grand Prix but admitted he wasn’t sure about his strategy during the race.


  • The Red Bull driver claimed victory of the race as he finished ahead of championship rival Lewis Hamilton.
  • Verstappen admitted not being 100% confident if their aggressive strategy was going to work out in the race.

What he said:

  • “Of course we lost out in the start so we had to try and do something else. The tire wear is quite high around this track, we went aggressive and I was not sure it was going to work but the last few laps were fun.”
  • “A bit sideways through the high speed corners but super happy to hang on.”
