Max Verstappen, who secured his third victory of the season in Suzuka, is looking forward to the Grand Prix in China. He says: “It was great to bring home the win in Suzuka. I’ve stayed in Tokyo for a few days and it has been good to spend some more time in Japan with family and friends.”

Max continues: “We are looking forward to China as it is going to present a challenge ahead of us, especially with it being a sprint weekend. As we have not raced at this track since 2019, and with the one practice session, it will be all about ensuring we have set the car up in the best way we can and managing our tyres. This added element creates more excitement for the fans, which is good, and the team has been working hard to prepare.”

“Shanghai International Circuit is a great racing track and has a unique layout, with tricky corners and the long straights presenting lots of opportunities for overtaking. I have always loved driving at this circuit so we look forward to seeing what this weekend brings”, concludes Max.
