The Red Bull driver could not match the pace shown by Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc during qualifying for the Las Vegas Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen feels that he performed at his best during qualifying for the Las Vegas Grand Prix, despite starting in second place after being beaten by Charles Leclerc’s pole lap. He used a new set of Soft tyres during his initial run but decided to abort his final lap after seeing Leclerc’s improvement. Verstappen believes that his team has been lacking some one-lap performance throughout the weekend but hopes to make up for it during the race. He anticipates the possibility of Safety Cars and expects exciting racing on the long straights.
