The Red Bull driver, Max verstappen, he was frustrated after the 2020 calendar dates in which Lewis hamilton demonstrated his dominance. The Dutchman was unable to score in the last few races due to a series of retirements, which doomed his chances to fight for the title this year.
This Wednesday, Max Verstappen faced the microphones and was subjected to a series of questions, in which the analysis of the season was emphasized. Verstappen was critical of his performance and that of the car. Also, he had no soft words for his biker Sling. «Mercedes it is still far superior, ”he told Dutch TV.
Furthermore, the Red Bull team is not looking forward to next year yet, as the regulatory change does not come until 2022. «I hope that next year we will be closer to Mercedes. I don’t think we will be able to win. I hope we have more options with the regulatory change of 2022. But if we are that far away, it will not happen either. We want to win every weekend but this World Cup is over«. commented.
For its part, one of the responses to the bad year that the Austrian team is having is due to the stoppage due to the pandemic, said Verstappen. “Due to COVID-19 we cannot make any changes to next year’s car. Honda has made progress, but Mercedes is still superior when it comes to batteries, “he added.
Lastly, Verstappen pointed to a possible Honda error, saying: “We have to improve and for that Honda has changed some engineers, so maybe that’s why they are starting to have unexpected difficulties.” The Dutchman is in the third position of the championship, so the chances of fighting for the title are slipping away.
