Max Verstappen, anger and nervousness: "No mistake"

Max Verstappen, who was only sixth on the grid after qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix, commented on his performance in Monte Carlo with a certain amount of angst. The Dutch driver, who stopped his series of consecutive poles at eight, è was also featured in the negative in Q3, when he touched the wall at the first corner in the last attempt: "First mistake of the year? No I would not say that è so ", è blurted out to Sky microphones.

"I would invite anyone in this paddock to drive this car to try to go faster than me, because é è è it was tremendous. I’m pushing to the limit, but the car è terrible to drive, è no suspension, a go-kart, in the second sector I can’t get on the curbs…".

An unusually nervous Verstappen explained that the RB20 is ill-suited to the Monte Carlo street circuit: "I made a mistake in Turn-1, è true, but I could have been even more è back. I was on the limit all weekend trying to make the best time I could, forò it just wasnò t possible. This weekend we are behind, in Imola we had managed to turn things around in an incredible way, but unfortunately here the car is not working".

" We try to do our best, we are not under pressure, but the car is not working here and we have to accept it. In the race I will try to get as many points as possible without doing stupid things. If there are opportunitiesà we will try to take them, but normally there are not many here". Teammate Perez will startà just eighteenth.
