Max Verstappen, in Zandvoort, he will do the honors of the house, but up to a certain point. In fact, he has no intention of being gallant with his colleagues, also because he needs a victory. A ‘real’ victory, not like that of Spa-Francorchamps: a success that could give him 25 points and possibly a fast lap, pushed by the ‘orange wall’ that will be everything for him. Why Lewis Hamilton he is still leading the championship and, in all likelihood, will arrive at the next appointment (Monza) as the favorite.
These are the words of the Red Bull driver: “Spa was not a normal Grand Prix, we didn’t want the weekend to go like this. But a win is a win and points are important for both championships: we must maximize every opportunity. Of course as drivers we all wanted to race and offer a show to the fans, but it was clearly not an easy decision and the lack of visibility meant the race was not safe.“, He told the official channels of the team. “Now let’s turn the page and go to Zandvoort. It will be special to have a race in Holland in front of my home crowd, but also as a driver it is a great challenge to go to a new circuit and find the limit in an F1 car. It was amazing to see so many fans supporting us in Austria and Belgium and I hope we can give a good show for everyone this weekend“.
“As for the track, overtaking may be a bit difficult, but on the flying side I think it will be rewarding. The qualifying laps will be very fast and any mistakes will be paid dearly. After the race was canceled last year, this year will be even more special and of course it would be great to win on another home circuit ahead of the ‘Dutch wall‘. I only did one race in Zandvoort and it was in a Formula 3 car. At that time I was known as ‘the son of’, but now it will be the other way around! The track has obviously changed since then, some corners have been adapted. Already with the F3 car, the corners were really nice and fast: I’m excited to be back with a Formula 1, we will have even more grip“, Concluded Verstappen.
