Max Verstappen believes that the pace he had on the opening day of the Singapore GP is “not representative”.
Verstappen was 2nd and 4th in FP1 and FP2 in Singapore respectively. However, his practice program was affected by long set-up adjustments. Nevertheless, the Dutchman was not too concerned about it.
“I think it started off quite well in FP1; I think the car was working quite well. For FP2 we wanted to try a few things, but they just took a bit longer to change. Then we wanted to try something else and, again, that took quite a long time to change again,” Verstappen said.
“We couldn’t really run a lot [so] that’s why I think it’s not really representative, what we showed in FP2. Of course, there’s still a lot of room for improvement, but it’s not the worst day.”
