Max Verstappen drove the greatest distance on the first day of tests – 168 laps – and was pleased with how everything went …
Max Verstappen: “Good day, we managed to travel a great distance – that was the task for today. At such an early stage in working with machines, it was impossible to demand more.
It is already clear that the team managed to improve the car in those areas that are important to us. Now you need to get comfortable with it, optimize everything so that we can fight with the leaders.
This year, two days less tests, so it was especially important to drive a lot of circles. And today everything worked out. ”
Christian Horner, team leader: “Everything went well. A wonderful sunny day. We are at the very beginning of the journey with a new car, but Max is already starting to get used to it. So far, Verstappen and RB16 get along fine. ”
