Max Verstappen is not fully satisfied with the performance of his RB18 after the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The Dutch driver had to retire due to a lack of fuel pressure, an issue that also affected his teammate Sergio Perez laps later.

“Well, [I’m] not entirely happy, but I was still in second, which would have been a good amount of points,” Verstappen said.

“Unfortunately, we couldn’t finish the race. But [there were] still a lot of things we learned because we, more or less, completed the whole race, so we have a lot of information from that.

“We’ll try to implement that here [in Saudi Arabia]. Of course, the track is a bit different, but it was a good understanding of the first proper race distance on the car.

“I expected more, but we have our reasons for that. That’s why we’ll try to do better here.”
