Max Verstappen, the 2021 Formula 1 World Champion, finished yesterday’s qualifying session in P4 while his teammate Sergio Perez was able to put the RB18 on pole.
The result was not expected by anyone at the track and came as a big surprise to most analysts who were closely following events in Saudi Arabia.
That’s what Max Verstappen said after qualifying media“Everything felt normal in Q1 and Q2… My first run in Q3 was terrible. I had no grip, to be honest I don’t understand it because there wasn’t really anything weird going on… At least I know the car has a lot of potential because Checo put it on pole.”
According to Max Verstappen, the Q1 and Q2 sessions were normal for him as the car felt super fast, but it was only in the Q3 session that Max struggled for grip and wasn’t able to set a decent lap during the allotted time in the Q3 session.
Max Verstappen is busy in Saudi Arabia
The young Dutchman will start the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix from P4 with Sergio on pole and the two fast Ferraris in front of him.
With Ferrari leading the Constructors Championship at the moment, the Red Bull team has a lot of work to do in Saudi Arabia and it falls to Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen keeping the Ferrari duo in check, which won’t be easy.
Max Verstappen has all the skills needed to overtake the other cars on the track and it would be Verstappen’s job to get in front of the two Ferraris as quickly as possible.
During the Bahrain Grand Prix, Max was able to pass Charles three times during the race but was promptly passed by the Ferrari man on all three occasions.
Given the recent history between the two drivers, the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will be a lively affair between the two young drivers and one shouldn’t miss the thrilling battle that will ensue as the two drivers go head-to-head.
