In the classification of the first day of free practice of the British Grand Prix, to find the first Red Bull driver it is necessary to go down to fourth position occupied by Max Verstappen and even further down to the seventh to find Sergio Perez. It was not an easy Friday that the Milton Keynes-based stable at Silverstone experienced and the difficulties were not hidden from the microphones of the journalists by Max Verstappen, current championship leader, who explained that the team would have lived a night of work in the attempt to make the two RB18s more competitive. The same concept was expressed by Helmut Marko, councilor of the team, who spoke of the car’s balance problems: “We don’t have the right set-up yet, we are not finding the right balance on the car. We suffer from both oversteer and understeer and can’t find grip on slow corners. We are not working in the right direction “told a Motorsport Magazin.
There rain however, he could come to the rescue of the team: “In those conditions Max does not need a study phase. He goes out on the track and is immediately one second faster than everyone else. Definitely Max won’t do the rain dance, because it’s no fun driving Silverstone in the wet. But if there should be water, we know we have a joker“, then highlighted Marko to his compatriots Kronen Zeitungadding: “Max delivers incredible performance under pressure, and in the race he handles everything perfectly, from the tires to the brakes. Mentally he is strong, and despite his young age and sporting and financial successes, he has remained a simple person “. Closing on the world championship fight: “I see a duel on a par with Ferrari, in which the nuances will decide who will win. The Mercedes? They could win at Silverstone if the track were to be ideal for their car. But a battle with them brings to mind the unpleasant memory of last year, when Hamilton threw Max off the track. This is an episode that is still very much present in people’s memories ”.
