Max about French Grand Prix: 'Hoping to challenge front runners more closely'

Max Verstappen looks ahead to the Frech Grand Prix, which will take place next week at the Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet: “France is still a very new Grand Prix for F1 which makes it naturally more of a challenge for all teams and I had not raced there before 2018.”

“Last year was good for us, we got the strategy spot on and finished second on the podium which was a good team result. It’s not an easy track with very wide open entries to corners which is different to most other tracks we race on. I think in general it’s good to have a Grand Prix in France. It’s a historic track which is well known for its safety, it also attracts lots of fans who love the sport which is great to see, especially for Pierre. It’s also not far from home, which makes life a bit easier.”

“We maximised things in Canada and we are working hard to improve all aspects. I feel comfortable in the car so I hope we will be able to challenge the frontrunners more closely in France.”
