Max looks forward to Jeddah: 'It's a really cool street circuit'

Max Verstappen previews the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, next weekend at the fast Jeddah street circuit. The two-time Formula One world champion says: “After a great start in Bahrain I don’t expect it to be an easy task in Jeddah, it is a completely different circuit and needs the car to be quick. Nevertheless, with the high-speed corners, I do believe we can have a strong car around this track."

For this year, some of the walls next to the track have been moved backwards. It's a positive change, says Max: “The track changes that have been made are mainly for visibility, so hopefully it has improved things a bit for us drivers, as it was definitely dangerous in some areas. It’s a really cool street circuit, with quite a lot of grip, so I always enjoy going back there to race."
