Max Verstappen

“Our next race is back in Europe at Barcelona Circuit, which is the track where I won my first F1 race, so it is always a special one for me. It’s a good track and we all test there during pre-season so hopefully that will help us set-up the car straight away. Of course, the temperatures will be a bit different and everyone is bringing new parts to their cars, so it will be interesting to see how competitive we can be. There are some fast corners so it’s always a challenging circuit, and being closer to home, it will be good to see so many fans in the granstands. For us, the main thing is to keep maximising our results while we hopefully continue to close the gap to the championship leaders.”

Pierre Gasly

“Barcelona is kind of a cool race because you’re back in Europe and it marks the start of the middle part of the season. It’s also a track where I’ve driven most of my laps, because going back to my junior career, we always tested there, so it’s a track everyone knows well. It’s a really exciting time as Spain is where you have upgrades coming and that’s really when you see the step everybody is making. I think the Team has always been competitive there so I’m excited to see the performance we can achieve. You usually find the fans are pretty passionate in Spain so I expect a lot of people and it’s a race with a massive crowd. For sure you have more French people there as it’s close to France so there’s a bit more support and seeing the flags in the grandstands is a nice feeling that gives you an even bigger boost!”
