Drafting sports, Aug 1 (EFE) .- The Dutchman Max Verstappen (Red Bull) gave as good his third place in the qualifying session of the Grand Prix of Great Britain of Formula One as the Mercedes of English Lewis Hamilton and Finnish Valtteri Bottas “are very fast”.
“I think the lap itself was very good, but the Mercedes were very fast, as they have been in the last few races. We have to accept it,” said Verstappen at the end of the qualifying session.
“It gives us third place, although in the race we are a little closer to them,” he said with a little more optimism, thinking about this Sunday’s race at Silverstone.
“This does not mean that I will be able to fight with them, but in the first corner I will try.”
