I am ready to go forward with Super-soft strategy – Verstappen

The young F1 star – Max Verstappen says that Red Bull had to attempt a different strategy for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to give them an opportunity to fight dominant Mercedes. The Australian Daniel Ricciardo will also start Sunday season climax on super-soft tyres.

Red Bull duo only drivers to improvement from Q2 on the Super Soft tyre, with all others using the Ultra Soft compound.

More durable Super-soft strategy resulted, Ricciardo fourth, and Verstappen sixth, sandwiching the Ferrari duo Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel.

“The ultrasoft is quite weak on the long runs. I did a long run in the morning with the temperature way higher, and the supersoft was quite good so we’ll see tomorrow. Max told Sky Sports F1

“We just tried something different. If you use the same tyres, you are just following – and that’s not what you want.

“I have to go forward. The pace was there all weekend then I’m starting last out of the top three teams. I’m not happy about that but it will be an interesting race tomorrow.”
