The Dutchman, who finished second in the race, complained about his lack of tenacity
Max Verstappen was unable to stop Lewis Hamilton in the Portugal GP and at the end of yesterday’s race the Red Bull driver blamed the circuit. The Dutchman complained about his lack of commitment and told “Sky Sports” that he hoped he would not have to return to the Algarve next year.
“I didn’t like the weekend because of the levels of grip. Hope we don’t have to come back here,” said the driver, who was a runner-up in Portimao.
“Barcelona is good,” he added, referring to the FIFA World Cup, the next event of the World Championship. “It’s a good track for a Formula 1 car and I think we’ll see the difference in terms of the start of the season.”
Verstappen said: “Here I clearly lacked coherence, lacked speed. I couldn’t squeeze Mercedes.”
The Dutchman started in third place, behind Hamilton ahead of Valtteri Bottas, who started in first place.
