Max Verstappen finished second in the Russian Grand Prix on Sunday, an excellent result. Not only for themselves after two outings in Italy, but also for the team that has never really been close to the podium in Sochi. This is mainly because the track was never really suitable for the Red Bull car, which again shows the capabilities of the Dutchman.
Looking back at Formula 1.com, Lawrence Barretto writes that Verstappen has done almost nothing wrong in Russia. “If anyone is wondering why Max Verstappen is being named as future champion, the 2020 Russian Grand Prix will be among a long list of examples to back up that claim.” This is based on the fact that Red Bull has never been on the podium in the largest country in the world before.
Barretto: “Their car is simply not suitable for the track.” It is not that the car was suddenly good in Russia, the result was more due to Verstappen who rose above his material. This is clear from the difference with Alexander Albon, who finished tenth almost one lap behind Verstappen.
“Verstappen has found a way to once again exceed the capabilities of the RB16, first a brilliant second qualifying – with a margin of 1.1s over teammate Alex Albon – and then a superb P2 in the race. Brilliant.”
