I am very satisfied with P4 – Verstappen

The young speedy, Max Verstappen successively finished his second ever race for Red Bull Racing, and he admits targeting a podium finish.

Red Bull adapted a two stop strategy for Max and to secure fourth place ahead of championship leader Nico Rosberg. But the Red Bull duo was suffering with tyre degradation during the race.

“We did what we could today and that was a great job,” said Verstappen.

“We wanted to finish on the podium in front of the Williams but soon realised we were suffering with a bit too much tyre degradation. I think a little bit of rain could have helped us.

“I am very satisfied with my performance but also with the new power unit, you could see it was hard for the Mercedes to try and pass on the long straight so we are making good progress.

“The last 10 laps I really enjoyed – I would actually say they were the hardest 10 laps of my life. I was in fourth for a very long time so I didn’t want to give up that position.

“It was a very hard battle at the end of the race, his [Rosberg’s] pace was very strong but we managed to keep ahead and then the last lap [with Rosberg’s spin] was pretty spectacular.

“After Monaco it’s nice to leave this race with a big smile on my face.”
