Max Verstappen admitted that upset about the lack of speed with Red Bull Racing at the Grand Prix of Australia, but promised to be patient.
After the pre-season tests in Barcelona, many believed that the Austrian team is in no hurry to reveal all the cards and at the first stage in albert Park will impose competition of Mercedes and Ferrari. However, the last racing weekend showed that the team Christian Horner is really inferior in speed to its major rivals.
Verstappen started and finished fifth, while his teammate Daniel ricciardo went down because of technical problems.
“What was positive in the past weekend? Weather! – joked Verstappen in an interview with The Telegraph. – Frustrating that you’ll have to wait a long time? Nothing can be done. I am not able to change anything. The gap is large, so a lot of work ahead.
On the other hand, I’m not too upset, because even in the winter said that the car is not perfect.”
Verstappen also said that piloting of a new car a pleasure, but to overtake it became really hard.
“The pilot was interesting, – said Max. – But the race in Melbourne was not very exciting. I was able twice to call in for a pit stop and still remain on his position”.
