Max Verstappen: “I am not suddenly the big favorite for the new F1 season”

Max Verstappen set the fastest time during the three-day F1 test in Bahrain. His Red Bull F1 car seemed to perform better than Mercedes’ F1 car, but Verstappen does not see himself as a favorite for the new F1 season that will start within a week.

Encouraging, that’s how you can call the three-day test in Bahrain for the neutral F1 fans. With only three days of testing, the teams and drivers had less time to prepare for the new season, which should also make things a little less predictable.

World champion Mercedes had technical problems and the new F1 car did not seem as stable and stable as the Red Bull RB16B from Verstappen. Still, Verstappen does not believe that he is now the big favorite for the new season.

“I don’t see myself as the favorite at all,” said Verstappen during an interview with the Dutch ‘Ziggo Sport’. “If you’ve been as dominant as Mercedes in the last seven years, even though these regulatory changes have made you the worst floor under your car, you’re still good. I still see Mercedes as a favorite. ”

Verstappen especially hopes that he can immediately compete with Mercedes from the start of the season and then of course for the rest of the season.

“I hope we will be competitive this year, but we don’t have everything under control. Our goal is to be fast anytime, anywhere. I think Mercedes and we will be close together. We will see in a week in Q3 which car is fastest, ”Verstappen concludes.
