Max looks ahead to the Eifel GP: 'Hopefully rain makes it even more interesting'

Looking forward to the Eifel Grand Prix, that sees the Formula 1 return to the Nürburging, Max Verstappen expresses his feelings: “I’m feeling good heading into the weekend, I feel very relaxed and I’m looking forward to driving a track that we haven’t been to in Formula 1, at least for me anyway. It’s exciting to go to the unknown, similar to Mugello.”

Are you a fan of the track and could the weather mix things up this weekend? Max says: “I haven’t raced at the Nürburgring since Formula 3 so I’m excited to go back there to see what a Formula 1 car can do. It’s a very technical track, I like it. The weather looks like it’s going to be a lot colder than the races we’ve had so far this year, and there may be a little bit of rain so hopefully that will make it an even more interesting race weekend.”

Honda announced they're leaving the sport at the end of next season. Does that change anything heading to the next round? Max: “It is of course a shame that Honda are leaving Formula 1, especially as we have such a good relationship and we really see the dedication of the people involved in the project which has always been very important for me. In terms of what that means at the moment and what we are focused on then nothing has changed. We still have the rest of this season and next season to focus on together and we are still trying to be on the podium every single race, that’s a good target for us. Making sure that we maximise all the results that we can all the time.”
