Despite winning the Miami Grand Prix, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen still hopes his team will have a flawless weekend anytime soon.

The Dutchman got off to a rocky start at the Miami GP as he faced multiple issues which limited his running on Friday, compromising, as he says, his qualifying run due to a lack of experience around the track.

Speaking after the Grand Prix (which he won), Verstappen said he hopes Red Bull will have a weekend without issues soon.

“On my side, I had a lot of issues on Friday, which compromises your weekend, and especially yesterday [on Saturday],” he explained.

“Of course, today everything went well with the start, but it also could have been the other way around. And then you of course can say like, well, fair enough, because if you missed almost a whole Friday, what can you do about it?

“We just have to nail down a really positive weekend without issues. I think, of course, Imola, we had that, but it’s still a bit of a hit and miss too much, so we just have to make sure that we are more reliable and more on top of things.

“But as you can see the car is quick. I’m very happy about that, I mean, if you would be slow and reliable, that’s probably also not a good thing.”
