Max Verstappen has reflected on a challenging first day of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.


  • Verstappen finished 2nd in the FP1 and 4th in the FP2.
  • The Dutchman reveals that he had issues with tire temperatures as well as had ineffective set-up adjustments.

What he had to say:

  • “We struggled to get heat into the tires in FP2, which we will of course look into. Then we made a few changes from FP1 to FP2 which didn’t quite work but, hopefully, we can find the right balance come qualifying tomorrow.”
  • “There are a lot of things to work on and improve so we’ll see what we can do to get more pace out of the car overnight.”
  • “Looking ahead to qualifying, I think it might be quite difficult with the traffic but, in general, it’s hard to tell how Saturday is going to go, as anything can happen, but we’ll push hard and give it everything.”
