Racer Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen commented on Friday’s free races of Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi, who finished in sixth place, behind second leader Lewis Hamilton.
“We tried a few different settings to see which is better suited to the conditions on the track – Verstappen is quoted by the press service of Red Bull Racing. – I was pleased with the car in the first session, but the second – no. However, we understand what went wrong and what changes this has resulted, so that by Saturday all correct.
On the track in Abu Dhabi it is very important that the machine was configured optimally, since the turns here follow each other. It is necessary to add, but we are not so much behind the leaders, what can be called the main result of the beginning of the weekend.
Today I was working with an old engine that is not used at full capacity. But on Saturday we will replace, which should allow me to compete for higher positions. Mercedes and the rest of the season, look to be the favorites, but we will try to get as close as possible”.
