Belgian GP: Practice team notes - Red Bull

NEWS STORY
30/08/2019

Max Verstappen: "The car felt pretty good today, especially the balance in FP2 and we are quite competitive in the second sector. We ran a slightly lower power mode on my side of the garage which lost us lap time, especially around such a long circuit, but tomorrow we should be back to normal and there is no point in risking anything on a Friday. It will be hard to beat Ferrari around here as they are super fast but that is no surprise as this track definitely suits them better than us. We should be closer to Mercedes tomorrow and we will see what we can do from there. We still have a bit of work to do but in general I was quite happy with how the car was behaving."

Alex Albon: "Today was exciting, a bit like your first day at school, and it felt pretty good. I kept it on the black stuff and I'm enjoying it. I'm just trying to take it slowly, get as many laps as I can and understand the car as I'm still learning. There are obviously differences from Toro Rosso so I'm trying to adapt as quickly as possible, I can see it's a nice car to drive and it's quick, now I just need to get used to it. In the morning, FP1 was pretty good, it was just baby steps really, then in the afternoon we focused more on long runs as with the penalty, our focus isn't so much on short run pace but more on Sunday. The Team have been very kind to me and so I feel quite at home with the guys. I don't have any expectations or a finishing goal, I just want to do a good job for Sunday."
