Max Verstappen, who will wear a special helmet during the Japanese Grand Prix, is looking forward to the race, coming weekend: “Following the race in Singapore, the team is carrying a lot of momentum into Japan. I’m looking forward to racing in Suzuka, it’s always super fun to drive as it has a lot of high-speed corners.”

Max adds: “I also have very fond memories from the track there, from winning my second drivers’ championship, scoring a great team result finishing 1-2 and even looking back to 2014, when I drove during FP1 for the first time. I’m spending a few days in Tokyo ahead of the weekend which should be fun and also help with the jet lag. We need to get everything right this weekend and of course, the target is to win.”
