Max about Singapore: 'Qualifying is key'

Published on 13 September 2019 by Niels Hendrix

Looking forward to the upcoming Singapore Grand Prix, next weekend, Max Verstappen says: “Singapore is a great track and the city looks amazing at night. I enjoy driving under the floodlights as it gives more character to the track and I really like this kind of weekend as it’s so different to a normal race. The track is very demanding – it’s hot, it’s physical and you sweat a lot, but it’s one of my favourites. You have a lot of corners that are a mix of high and low speed, plus some medium speed corners that have little run-off, so it’s a very diverse circuit.”

Max continues: “It’s also a race where we tend to do better than say, Monza and Spa. I finished second there last year so hopefully we can have another good weekend. Overtaking is very tricky so qualifying is the key, you have to nail it! I’m looking forward to having a more normal race weekend and hopefully not starting out of position again which always makes things more difficult. We’re aiming for maximum points and I’m really looking forward to it.”
