Max Verstappen said that he “does not worry” about Kevin Magnussen starting the Sprint from the pole position.

Verstappen finished the Sao Paulo GP qualifying in 2nd place. The Dutchman was 0.203 seconds behind polesitter Kevin Magnussen.

When asked whether Magnussen will make the Sprint more challenging, Verstappen replied: “I don’t even worry about that, I think we should be alright.”

Verstappen also reflected on his performance in qualifying and admitted that difficult conditions forced him to make a lock-up during his Q3 lap.

“Pretty tricky conditions and you just have to stay on track to do your lap times at the right time.

“But I think at the end of the day, you know, we did that in Q1, Q2, Q3.

“We knew it was [only] going to be that first lap and when I arrived at turn 8 I locked up a bit.

“So it’s difficult out there, but still on the front row and that’s what is important.”
