Racer Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen, who took fifth place in the first Grand Prix of the season, shared with the press service of the team his thoughts about the race.
Sebastian Vettel brought Ferrari their first victory of 2015!
“I had a good start, but unfortunately, due to the flow of dirty air I had allowed Kimi to re-take the lead, – said Verstappen. – Then my pace was good: I was even able to keep up with Kimi, which was surprising.
I’m glad we’re not so far off from Ferrari and Mercedes. In the morning we had suffered greatly because of this, but after the race was able to exhale after seeing the result.
From a physical point of view, I feel good. Cars, though difficult to manage, but last year I felt worse after the race.
Our car in the race behaved better than in qualifying, but to chase the other riders it was difficult. As soon as approaching to a distance in two seconds, the tires immediately start to “go”. To China we need to continue to work hard on the car. No matter how good our race pace in some moments we substantially lag behind”.
