Max Verstappen Acknowledges “Still Long Season” to Go For Battle at Imola in F1 Grand Prix

Max Verstappen isn't happy about his performance at the Q3 of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen, the young Red Bull driver is confident of battling it out at the upcoming Imola Grand Prix and thinks the season is still long enough. The Red Bull prodigy does not want the fans to conclude Imola as the last race of the season and talked about making improvements from here on.

The Formula One pundits and fans are of the opinion that the Red Bull driver is a title contender this season. Max has the capability to give Lewis a run for his money and stop him from clinching his eighth Formula One World Championship.

With the form Verstappen is in and his new, fast and improved RB16B will definitely be a combo to look out for at Imola Circuit.

In a Twitter post, posted by Red Bull Racing Honda’s Official Twitter Handle, the 23-year-old driver conveyed “There are always areas to improve, so that’s what we will continue to do in Imola. I’m up for the battle and it’s still a very long season.”

Time for Max Verstappen to turn the table?

Max, who’s in scintillating form right from the start of the season sits at P2 at driver’s standings just behind leader Lewis Hamilton. From dominating the pre-season testing at Bahrain Grand Prix to taking the pole position at the final qualification, there was little the young driver could do to start the season with a bang.

Even though the Dutchman lost the Sakhir Circuit to Lewis by the simplest of margin, he believes him and his team will turn the tables at Imola. Even if they fail to do so, the season will still remain long enough to capitalise on and make amends, Max considers.
