Verstappen doesn’t think Red Bull has the pace to beat the Turkish Grand Prix – Motorsports

Verstappen’s title rival, Lewis HamiltonAlthough qualifying in Istanbul, the race will start on the 11th due to a grid penalty for using the fourth engine of the season prior to Friday’s practice in Turkey.

After third place in qualifying, 0.328 seconds behind Hamilton and a 0.198 second drift from Bottas, Verstappen was asked if he thought his team had enough performance to win the race on Sunday. Follow us to see what we can do. And look at what happens in a race in general. “

As a result of that work, Verstappen said Red Bull “made some decent improvements compared to yesterday, when it was a little more difficult to figure out how to run fast around here.”

He added: “[The team was] Just tackling it and I think it got a little better in qualifying again, but of course it’s still not perfect.
