Max Verstappen equalled his dad’s best-ever grid position

Verstappen impressed in difficult conditions to qualify sixth for Sunday's Malaysian GP
17-year-old Max Verstappen proved he is a threat to F1’s best by qualifying an extraordinary sixth for the Malaysian Grand Prix. In just his second race, he has equaled his dad’s best-ever grid position when Jos started from sixth at the 1994 Belgian GP for Benetton.

“I’m very happy, it was a good session this afternoon, especially Q3.” Max said.

“In Q1 and Q2 I wasn’t totally comfortable with the car, but we had a good end of Q2. I was smiling when it started to rain, because that’s what I like. I’m Dutch so I’m used to driving in the wet, even though here it’s a completely different story.”

“P6 is a really a good position to start tomorrow’s race. I’m really looking forward to it and even if we seem to struggle a bit in the longer runs, I’m not worried and hopefully we can score some points.”

Vertappen’s performance received high congratulate from his team’s technical director James Key.

“Max did an outstanding job considering that we’ve never faced these conditions with him in the past and he nailed it,” Key said. “To be starting from the third row here is excellent.”
