Verstappen and Ricciardo could not believe eyes: ‘Kimi was suddenly behind...


The start of the Portuguese Grand Prix was full of chaos and spectacle. The entire top three didn’t get off well and struggled to find traction. Drivers like Carlos Sainz eagerly took advantage of this, the Spaniard passed everyone and even took the lead for a while. Kimi Raikkonen was also very well off, the Finn started in P16, but was sixth after a few corners, something Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen could hardly believe.

“I thought I was doing a good first lap,” Ricciardo told the assembled press after the race. “I think I passed three cars, but then suddenly I saw how Kimi overtook me. Then I thought, ‘okay, maybe my first lap isn’t as good as I thought and certainly not as good as his.’ He really had a great first round, ” said the Australian.

Verstappen was also impressed by the speed of the McLarens and Raikkonen in the first lap of the race. “I struggled in the beginning and was looking for grip, especially compared to a number of other cars. Especially the McLarens, they really flew past in the first lap and Kimi too, I think, who was suddenly behind me at one point, I was quite surprised, ” concludes Verstappen.
