As enthusiastic as Max Verstappen was in advance about the new Formula 1 circuit in the Algarve, he thinks it is such a shame what they ‘did’ on the track: “When I was here in January, I thought it was a super cool circuit. But they have laid new asphalt that has hardly any grip. You have strange moments when the car breaks out and if you want to go into a corner even faster, there is zero grip “, said the Dutch Red Bull driver in conversation with Ziggo Sport.
Verstappen therefore draws a conclusion that oozes disappointment: “To be honest, I don’t really like it at the moment. Of course, you adapt to the new situation, but it’s not fun.”
The lack of grip has direct consequences for the tires, so much so that Verstappen wonders whether Pirelli has done well to take the three hardest tires in the name of Portugal.
“The harder a tire is, the more difficult it is to get it up to temperature. I don’t know if they brought the right tires with them,” said Verstappen, who understands Pirelli’s choice: “It’s also for them. very difficult to choose a tire in advance, so they go for the safe option. “
