The Dutch, who finished in fifth position after leaving in ninth place, recognized on the official website of Formula 1 that could not do more, confirming the superiority of Mercedes and Ferrari in this race. "Enjoying may not be the right word, there was not much else I could do, I finished P5, probably if I had started P3, I would have finished P5 or If P5 had started, it would have been P5, "said the Red Bull driver.

" We just did not have the pace to fight the cars ahead. I made a very long first stint, it seemed to work quite well for me to clear a little traffic, once in the pits, I was able to quickly overtake the Renault, I was able to do my own race, but there was not much more to do than , so I just had to bring the car home ", explained Verstappen.

Despite the disappointment of this race, the Dutchman is doing a good season as he is fourth in the Drivers' World Championship with 88 points, doubling the score of his questioned partner, Pierre Gasly.
