Max: 'Looking forward to the Austrian Grand Prix'

Max Verstappen previews the next race, this weekend at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg: “I’m looking forward to the Austrian Grand Prix, especially going back there after we won last year. Winning at the Red Bull Ring in a Red Bull car was a very special moment and it was incredible with so many Austrian and Dutch fans in the crowd. Wherever you are sitting around the circuit, you can get a good view of the whole track, which I think is good because it creates more of an atmosphere when the fans can follow the race so closely.”

Max continues: “It’s a short lap but the track is challenging as there are so many different types of corners, so in terms of car balance there is a lot to consider and it’s not that easy to set the car up. We will of course do our best and it’s always good for the team to be in Austria as it’s a home Grand Prix and there’s a really good energy. Tomorrow we have a show run event in Graz which I’m looking forward to, especially with all the Austrian fans attending. I think there will be a lot of adrenaline flowing this week!”
