Latest Episode | Cut To The Race Podcast

Max Verstappen gave it everything to accomplish a team win at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Red Bull came out strong with a good strategy to dominate the race.

Max mentioned, “I did the best I could, of course, after yesterday. Once you got blocked with that red flag in qualifying you start fourth. I tried to do the best I can. I think as a team, we did a really good job with the strategy to basically get ahead of the Ferraris.”

After the Monte Carlo race, the Dutchman recalled how the Austrian team performed.

Verstappen added, “Today was really about strategy and making the right calls. And I have to say the team was very relaxed and on it with their calls, like, very straightforward. There was no doubt. It was like: ‘pit now, we go on this tyre’; ‘pit now again we go on this tyre’. They did a really good job with that. And yes, I think as a whole team we can be very pleased with the Sunday. I mean, it was a very hectic one with the rain and stuff, but I think we executed it well and I extended my points lead, which I didn’t expect last night, so I think that’s a positive.

Staying ahead when he exited the pit lane was key. An extra push gave him the advantage. To start P4 and finish on podium is impressive.

The 24-year old said,I’m really proud of the team effort this weekend and to get two cars onto the podium.

Max Verstappen is now leading the drivers standings with 125 points. Red Bull is first as well in the constructor standings with 235 points. The team is clearly ready for Azerbaijan.
