Max Verstappen was not satisfied with second place in Jeddah

The start of the 2023 World Championship heralds a title duel between the two Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez. In a press conference, the Dutch driver immediately began to turn up the pressure, saying he was not satisfied with second place in Jeddah, which was caused by technical problems with his single-seater in Saturday’s qualifying.

“Personally, I am not happy. I’m not here to finish second, running a comeback is a possibility and that’s not the problem, I’m happy to have recovered to second. The problem is that when the World Championship becomes a discourse between only two cars from the same team, you have to make sure they are both reliable,” is the two-time world champion’s dig.

“Inside the team there is obviously an atmosphere of happiness and satisfaction, but I’m not happy, especially because after working hard in the factory to make sure everything was perfect once we got to the track I found myself having to make a comeback.”
