Driver Interviews – Spanish Grand Prix Race Preview With Red Bull Racing
“Turn 1, 2 and 3 are really good flowing corners and the last section is very technical”
Daniel Ricciardo Interview
“Barcelona is one of the better circuits on the calendar and it’ got a bit of everything. Turns 1, 2 and 3 are really good flowing corners and the last section is very technical.”
“The end of the lap is quite slow and that’s where your tyres start to drop off which is why it’s really hard to finish the lap clean.”
“We’ll have the energy station back in Barcelona so that’s nice and it’ll be an easier environment to prepare in. We’ve got it now for a few months and that means we can actually put some things in our room that we can come back to.”
“Little things that give us privacy and that home feeling like favourite snacks, training equipment or our own shower.”
“I hope the upgrade will give us the chance to really fight with Mercedes and Ferrari or at least get us closer.”
“The reason why it comes in Barcelona is that we put everything back in the factory, we are very busy now so I hope it’s a quick improvement.”
“it means that people who do work behind the scenes also get their reward as well and it’s a good feeling for everyone when these upgrades work.”
“We’re going for the harder tyres for the first time this year in Barcelona – I’m not sure if it’ll help us or not but I just don’t think it’s going to be good for anyone.”
“The tyres are already hard enough so to use the harder compound is just way too hard – hopefully Barcelona is hot and therefore these harder tyres will work – if it’s cold, it’s going to be a struggle for everyone.”
“Going back to Spain will always mean a lot to me”
Max Verstappen Interview
“We’re finally back in Europe for the Spanish Grand Prix which is exciting, especially so for me this year!”
“It means familiar food and more of a normal, comforting driver room with the energy station there. You get to chill out and prepare in your own room which is worth a lot if you’re travelling as much as we do.”
“Around this time last year, I got the call to join the Red Bull Racing team which was a great feeling, when everything got announced – it happened so fast.”
“I spent a lot of time in the factory getting prepared and in the simulator in order to get used to the car. A lot of media attention at that time but I wasn’t really nervous – just happy to finally be driving for a top team.”
“Last year, it was such a special race to me and in the end we managed to pull it off – it was an incredible feeling once I passed the finish line and especially in your first race with a new team.”
“Going back to Spain will always mean a lot to me, track wise – I really like Turn 3 as it’s flat and quite a long corner so that’s good neck training.”
“We have to wait and see what the new updates will bring, I hope we can be a bit closer tot he top teams or that we can at least follow them. That would already be a good step forward.”
Max Verstappen’s Voyage!
Find out about Max’s favourite destinations in Europe to eat, chill, party and shop – till you drop!
Best Place For Shopping?
“Oxford Street is good but too busy! There are some good places in the side streets nearby to escape the crowds, little stylish London shops that you don’t see on the main streets…”
Best Place For Nightlife?
“The vars and clubs are really good fun but it’s always best to end the night with a house party.”
Best Place To Chill At A Beach?
“There are some really quiet and remote places on the North side of the island that you can relax on. You may not see anyone else all day.”
Best Place For Food?
“The tomatoes here taste so much better than anywhere else!”
