Max on Bahrain: 'An interesting weekend'

Published on 22 March 2019 by Julien Lemmen

After a promising start of the season, with a podium in Australia, Max Verstappen looks ahead to the upcoming Grand Prix in Bahrain: “I enjoy the track and the transition from day to night is a challenge in terms of car balance, so that always makes it an interesting weekend. You never really know where you stand when you start qualifying because you haven’t had the optimal preparation as the track conditions aren't the same during practice. The middle sector, which is quite technical, is the best part of the Bahrain circuit and I hope it’s good for racing again this year."

Max continues: “Starting the season with a podium in Australia is really positive but Melbourne is not a typical circuit, so we can’t get carried away, and I don’t think we will really know where we stand until after China.”
