Max Verstappen expects tough weekend in Canada

F1 News: Max Verstappen expects another ‘difficult’ weekend for Red Bull at F1 Canadian GP.

Red Bull struggles to reachfaster than Ferrari and McLaren last time in Monaco. Verstappen finished sixth in the region, making it his worst result since the 2022 Sao Paulo Grand Prix.

A recurring theme for Red Bull this year has been their struggles on road tracks, particularly those that are bumpy or require significant pavement use. Although the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has been improved, good roadside handling has always been a key factor for a good performance car.

“We have to wait and see, I think the new surface could also have some surprises in store for us. But it probably wasn’t our strongest weekend either because of that. But maybe a little better than [Monaco]”, said Max Verstappen

“Any track is bumpy or has curbs, or you have to go over a lot of curbs, so street circuits can be a bit tricky. But I hope that by then we will have some understanding of what is going on. »

Red Bull has won the last two Canadian Grands Prix. In 2022, Verstappen held off Carlos Sainz for victory, while a year later he held off Fernando Alonso’s charge.

Team boss Christian Horner believes changes to the track surface could change things in unexpected ways. “It’s a track we’ve done well at before. They’re popping up all over the circuit. So let’s see,” added Horner.
