In Bahrain, a new car Red Bull Racing was not as fast as in Melbourne, and rivals from Ferrari sur & # 39; ozna added. Max Verstappen will start fifth, but the team hopes for progress in the next few races.
Max Verstappen: "Fifth position on the grid – the best possible result for us this weekend, but we can not say that we have achieved the maximum from the car. We have conceded too many leaders, the balance in the course of the weekend left much to be desired, at different sites arose somehow insufficient, the oversteer.
Maybe we started the season with not the most optimal configuration of the front of the machine. In the Ferrari completely different design in this area, and we probably have not yet managed to fully disclose the possibility of new regulations. Now we analyze all our team is able to respond very quickly. We have a lot of competent experts, so I'm sure – soon a solution will be found.
I do not think we can in some way to blame Honda, because the chassis still leaves much to be desired. The Honda excellent job. I can not complain. The power plant is very reliable.
Let's see what happens in the race. In the long run we should be more competitive, and the difference in power is almost invisible. I hope I can get to the finish. One day I could not finish here because of brake failure, then because of the broken DRS and puncture. I'd like to at this time it worked out. "
