Happy birthday to Verstappen, who turns 19 today

Today, Max Verstappen celebrates his 19th birthday. The Dutch man turned 19. Just to make you feel really old, Max is officially younger than this weekend’s race. While the Malaysian Grand Prix made its calendar debut in 1999, the developments of the Sepang International Circuit and the Malaysian government’s plans for F1 were announced as far back as September 1996.

After the Friday practice session, Verstappen says that, Red Bull needs to find more pace in the qualifying short-lap, vitally with the soft compound.

“Both sessions were not too bad,” said Verstappen. “The first one, you just build up to it and especially with the new tarmac you have to get to grips with the car.

“I think it was a positive day, our short runs can be a bit better but I think the long runs look very strong.”

“If we can find a bit more in the short run, then we can be happy. I felt there was quite some laptime in the soft. The young sensation added.

“But I was most happy in the long run, it felt like I could do what I wanted with the car, I could throw it into the corner like I wanted to and still the pace was there.”
