Max Verstappen has spoken about the Mexico City Grand Prix qualifying, where he only managed to finish third.

Details:

  • Verstappen doubts that the rear wing issues affected his result.
  • The Dutchman thinks that he was capable of getting the pole position despite all the challenges in the end.

What he had to say:

  • “We had to repair them [rear wings] but when we went into qualifying everything was like normal. It’s not ideal but I don’t think it was the reason why it was a bit of a struggle for us in qualifying.”
  • “It seemed like through qualifying the balance went away a little bit. But actually the last lap, I was on for a good lap, but then I don’t know what happened in front of me but there were two guys going off. I thought there was going to be a yellow flag so I backed out and then the lap is, of course, destroyed.”
  • “Even with having that and not having a great balance, I think we still could’ve gone for that pole lap. Of course third is not amazing but I think it’s still better than starting second. Qualifying didn’t go our way but we’re not using these tyres anyway tomorrow so still a lot to fight for.”
