Red Bull’s Max Verstappen says his team’s exploits in pit-stops this year have been crucial to his recent successes.
Red Bull serviced Verstappen in just 1.88 seconds during the German Grand Prix, setting a new world record for the quickest pit-stop in F1 history.
“It’s crazy,” Verstappen said in an interview with Red Bull’s website. “They were very crucial. It was impressive to see that even in those demanding conditions they were still able to break the world record.”
Whether leading from the front or battling through his rivals, Verstappen accepts the challenge.
“I’m not there to try and make a big show out of it, I’m just trying to get the best result,” he said. “When we’ve qualified P4 or P5 you have to overtake people in the race, and that automatically creates action, I like fighting on the track and fighting hard for a victory. It has been boring, but lately we’ve had some good ones, which is better for the fans. I take the fight to the other drivers and I think fans like that.”
