Verstappen: We can follow Mercedes; don’t need cover Ferrari

Red Bull Racing pair Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen secured a double podium finish at the German Grand Prix.

Verstappen says Red Bull should be happy with the “comfortable” gap to nearest rival Ferrari and the result moving Red Bull into second in the Constructors’ Championship, 14 points clear of Ferrari.

“Yes, definitely on this track where we did not expect to be that close, we were quite close. So we can definitely be pleased with this qualifying because even we were in front of the Ferrari quite comfortably, and that was very important for us.” Verstappen told espn.

When the source asked, he was then pressed on whether Germany’s qualifying result was proof Red Bull has moved ahead of Ferrari, he replied: “I think we are defiantly on a good way, yeah. I mean, it shows that definitely. Hopefully now in the race we have good pace again like we had on Friday, and then we will see what happens.”
“It all looked very promising; hopefully we can have the same balance in the car tomorrow. So we see. It will be an interesting race.

“Hopefully we don’t need to cover [Ferrari] like we had to do in Hungary, where we lost out. And hopefully we can follow the Mercedes cars and try to push them.”
