Max Verstappen blijft in de bijzonder spannende eindfase van het seizoen zoals gewoonlijk erg kalm. De Nederlander kan mogelijk zijn eerste F1-titel opeisen in Jeddah, maar voorafgaand aan de race in Saoedi-Arabië benadrukt de Red Bull-coureur dat we gewoon moeten afwachten.

Verstappen smult van nieuwe circuits

Met twee races te gaan en een bijzonder klein verschil in punten met Lewis Hamilton is de ontknoping van het 2021-seizoen nabij. In Qatar pakte Hamilton een paar punten terug op de Nederlander. Verstappen kijkt uiteindelijk toch terug op een geslaagd weekend, waarin hij zijn gridstraf goedmaakte en het maximale eruit haalde.

In het Red Bull-persbericht blikt de Nederlander ook vooruit op de race in op Jeddah Corniche circuit van de aankomende week: “Ik heb op de baan gereden in de simulator en het lijkt op een hele snelle baan. Er is dus geen ruimte voor fouten. Natuurlijk zal er altijd wat giswerk bij komen kijken, omdat we er nog nooit hebben gereden. Maar het is leuk om dit jaar naar verschillende circuits te gaan.”

Over de strijd met Hamilton en de kans op zijn eerste titel in Saoedi-Arabië is Verstappen kort. De Nederlander is zoals altijd de koelheid zelve: “Ik ben kalm. Ik weet dat ik altijd mijn best doe, dus we zullen zien waar we eindigen. Er ligt nog steeds veel racen voor de boeg en we gaan alles geven.”
