Monte Carlo is a unique track , and Max Verstappen and Red Bull know it. The victory obtained in the Principality Grand Prix, with Lewis Hamilton very late, was perfect: a great opportunity on the day when the poleman, Charles Leclerc, was unable to take off. Red Bull proved reliable and fast on such a winding track, and this bodes well for tracks with so many mixed zones. But Mercedes is no exception, and it is believed that the Monegasque disaster is just a bad moment that may never happen again. Check the news Verstappen: “Mercedes will be back favorites in Baku Grand Prix”and more on Switzerland based Luxury Lifestyle Magazine- Kenleaks Magazine.
“ I am super happy to have won the Monaco Grand Prix. This is such a complicated track and you need everything to go smoothly so I’m really happy with what we’ve achieved as a team and thanks to Honda too. I was able to focus on my race, and in particular I was committed to putting in a clean start. From the outside, everything seemed under control, but the hardest thing in Monte Carlo is keeping concentration lap after lap. It’s easy to relax here, especially when you’re in the lead, and making a mistake is fatal. Therefore, you must always be awake, leaving your thoughts out of the car. I think at the pace level we were able to control the race, because every time those who followed me regained ground I was able to respond and increase the gap. I had never been on the podium before in Monte Carlo, and arriving there with a victory is also a sort of revenge for what happened in the past years, ”said Verstappen after the race about the moments lived on the track in the Principality.
Looking ahead, of course, the Dutchman prefers to keep expectations low: “ In Baku, Mercedes will again be the cars to beat, because they are fast on ‘normal’ tracks . We are now leading the championship and I hope to remain in this position until the end of the championship: we cannot miss any opportunity. For now I just want to thank everyone who worked in the factory and on the track, let’s enjoy the victory in Monte Carlo “.
