Max Verstappen nach seinem Sieg in Baku

Max Verstappen: What decides in Canadian GB / Formula 1

Dutchman Max Verstappen arrives in Canada as World Championship captain after four wins in the last five races: “Right now everything is going well, but we are in our own defense.”

Everything is going well for Formula 1 champion Max Verstappen right now. Red Bull controlled the issues of consistency at the start of the racing season, and almost everything worked out right for the Dutchman: in the last five races, Imola, Miami, Barcelona, ​​Monte Carlo and Baku, the 25-time GB driver won five times and finished second in Monaco. This gives the following picture of the intermediate stages in the driving championship: Verstappen with 150 points and 129 points ahead of his Red Bull racing team player Sergio Perez with Ferrari driver Charles Leklerk with 116 points.

However, Verstappen’s achievements at Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve are below average: fourth in 2016, third in 2017, third in 2018 and fifth in 2019.

Ahead of the ninth WRC round of the season, Max says: “We’ve not been to Montreal for three years, and I’m glad to see how the track has grown.

New generation racing cars are more sensitive to bumps on the road, and the last few years have shown that the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is sometimes more reminiscent of a washboard than a racing track. In many cars, this will promote a tendency to “bounce”, so it will challenge technicians and drivers in terms of integration.

Max Verstappen continues: “Montreal is a beautiful city, and we each want to come here. It would certainly be wonderful if we could have a double win like we did in Baguio. We try to do our best at every Grand Prix. “
