Verstappen: Maybe it’s a good thing I crashed…

Max Verstappen tried to look at the positives after crashing out of a chaotic FP2 session at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.

“It definitely didn’t help. This year the cars are generally more sensitive to the wind as you could also see with Valtteri who lost it also.

“Crashes can happen unfortunately. Maybe it’s a good thing as now they [the mechanics] take the whole car apart and put new parts on it.”

“In general, when I look at myself, I was happy in the car,” Verstappen added.

“That’s what I focus on and it’s been alright.

“I don’t know [whether Red Bull can get on the second row in qualifying] but we still have a lot of work to do. We can always be better in terms of balance and then we’ll find out tomorrow.”
