The Turkish Grand Prix had ended in the worst possible way for the men of Red Bull. The piloting errors of Max Verstappen and Alexander Albon had thrown to the ground the enormous competitiveness that they had shown throughout the weekend where victory or, at least, the podium was possible. The RB16 and the drivers were one in the race, but those mistakes penalized them enormously and both finished outside the Top 5. The frustration was noticeable in the words of the drivers and that of the bosses, since the car had been playing in another league from the first training sessions. The positive part is that they had a good pace and were superior in wet conditions, but there will not be that possibility in the last races. The Dutchman wants to focus on the Grand Prix in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi and find a new opportunity to finish this season in the best possible way.
Verstappen, focused on the end of the year
“We had a good dynamic that weekend, so we were all disappointed within the team to finish sixth and seventh in the race. It was not where we expected to be because we wanted to win. We had some problems and the rear tires were wearing out. faster compared to the rest. You always look ahead because you can’t change what has happened in the last race. I don’t expect to see these kinds of conditions again, the last races should be easier, “concluded the Dutchman in words collected from their website.
