Verstappen overjoyed: ‘Great for everyone in the team’

“I am very happy that it still works in the last qualifying session of the season,” said Verstappen. “In the last sector with so many turns, you can easily make a mistake. Fortunately, everything fell into place in that last lap. ”

Verstappen was also happy for his team. He quickly fell in the arms of the mechanics after parking his RB16. “It’s a long season for everyone, with many races in a row. That’s why this is so beautiful for all of us. All year round you are behind and you get a little closer, but it is sometimes a bit frustrating. That’s why I’m so delighted with today. ”

The 23-year-old Dutchman will start on the medium band on Sunday, just like the numbers 2 and 3 in qualifying: Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton. “I’m going to do my best to keep them behind me. They are still fast of course, but we seem to be too this weekend. ”
