Despite being his favorite track, Max Verstappen at Spa he never went beyond third place, nor did he ever drive a single race lap in his career. The great opportunity is called 2021: in the race on 29 August, the Red Bull package can allow the # 33 to dispel the taboo of his home race (Super Max was in fact born in Hasselt, Belgium, but drives with a Dutch license) . It is necessary to give one immediate response to Lewis Hamilton, which between Silverstone and Hungaroring has eaten him all the disadvantage and indeed has extended to +8 in the standings. Therefore, Verstappen’s goal must absolutely be the sixth victory of the season, also to celebrate the 50th race of the Red Bull-Honda duo. These are the rider’s words for the Spa weekend.
“My summer break was good, it was good to take a few weeks off. It’s nice to be back, now we have a rather demanding hat-trick, but we are all in the same condition. I am naturally thrilled to be returning to Spa, we’re talking about my favorite track and it’s really nice to drive – it has so many high-speed cornering and altitude changes. I am looking forward to seeing all the fans coming to support us and it will be special to have so much orange in the stands again as we raced behind closed doors last year. I also think it is a good circuit in which to recover ground in the championship standingsVerstappen told Red Bull channels. “These 50 races with Honda will always be special: we will remember them with affection. The first victory with this engine will be the most exciting memory of this collaboration and we hope to be able to finish this season at the top of the charts, to say goodbye to the big one. I enjoyed working with Honda from the very beginning. They have always been direct and have risen to the occasion“
