The words of Max Verstappen ahead of the Australian GP


After dominating the first two Gp of the season, Max Verstappen will go in search of a hat trick at the Melbourne circuit. Just a few days before the Australian GP, in fact, the Dutch driver, among other topics discussed to the official Red Bull channels, wanted to dwell on his feelings about the introduction of the new soft tires that will be used over the weekend.

"This is a very fast track that requires a good mix of straight-line speed and good corner grip, so it is a matter of finding the right compromise in terms of set-up. The recent resurfacing has made the track much more smooth and fun to drive. We will also have to pay attention to the new tires that are softer than last year and this will make it more difficult to plan the race from a strategic point of view, but hopefully it will be more beneficial for us to have a Gp with more than one stop" these are the thoughts of Max Verstappen.

In addition to the Dutchman, to the team&#39s official channels, è also spoke his teammate Sergio Perez, who è dwelt on his feelings about the possible gap between the Red Bull and the other cars: "We have been working a lot after Saudi Arabia on some areas and we hope that the car will be in a better window of operation. So far the car è been competitive, but Albert Park è a different test completion for the RB20 and it will be interesting to see how we perform. I think the grid here will be much more compact, so it will be crucial to get a good qualifying position. Last year's race è it was a little crazy, so I hope the weekend will be a little more'linear".
