The pilot of Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen was dissatisfied with fifth place at the end of qualifying at Suzuka.
On Saturday in Japan Max lost not only Lewis, but also to Valtteri Bottas, Sebastian Vettel and teammate Daniel ricciardo.
“The characterization could have been better for me, – admitted Max. We decided to choose different strategies for two cars: one was a lower level of clamping force, on the other – more.
My car had more downforce. I’m not sure this is the right decision. But we should not draw premature conclusions – see how car will show itself in the race.
I can say that I was dissatisfied with his first lap in Q3, but a quick second attempt was much better.
If you have problems in the first sector of the track of Suzuka, it will negatively affect the final result. I hope that on Sunday the back of my machine will be busier. We also look forward to warmer weather and a high level of wear rubber”.
