Max previews GP Japan: 'Ready to fight for the win'

Published on 03 April 2024 by Niels Hendrix

Max Verstappen is looking forward to the Japanese Grand Prix. The Oracle Red Bull Racing driver says: “Suzuka is always a great circuit to go racing at. As a team, we have had a lot of special memories here over the years including winning last year's constructors’ championship as well as winning my second drivers’ championship here too.”

“It has been nice to have had a break with family and friends before the racing starts and always fun to be able to spend some time in Tokyo too. The last race in Melbourne was unfortunate and these things happen, however we achieved nine race wins in a row, which is an impressive feat, so we are looking to come back even stronger for this weekend.”

“The team is feeling confident for Suzuka: it is an iconic circuit and is always fun to drive. The track has a lot of high speed corners and high degradation and we need to ensure that we optimise our performance where we can, especially with rain forecasted for this weekend. I am looking forward to getting back in the car and ready to fight for the win this weekend.”
